We have created the Wielo.pl portal, which enabled video sharing directly from mobiles, with no MMS file limit. It was based on a J2ME mobile application, a video streaming server and a web portal in two flavors: desktop and mobile (XHTML). Users were able to tag, like and comment on the content. Mobile application also allowed to share content with friends via SMS. We have created an advanced stats engine integrated with a customized streaming server and an application deployment agent on top of it. Design and development of the service took place in 2007 and was demoed to our clients before the mobile version of YouTube went public.
One of the first mobile usability tests in Poland were conducted by us as a part of the service development. During several live sessions, we have collected input from more than 30 users, processed the results and improved the application usability significantly.
