A while back I showed you how to upload your premade, custom videos to Vine using your video editing software, Handbrake and iExplorer. Now, there’s an App for that, and it’s called Vinyet.
[UPDATE 1/6/2014] As of today,Vinyet is no longer available to download from the iOS App Store due to a take down request from Twitter.
If you are reading this after January 6th and didn’t get a chance to download Vinyet, your best alternative to upload custom videos to Vine is by using VineClient. [/UPDATE]
Vinyet was an iOS app that let you upload custom videos to Vine and Instagram. But it was also much more than that. Vinyet was all about helping you create better social videos by offering unique video editing features not found on any other app.
But now it’s gone

The rest of my original review on Vinyet is below. I’m leaving it up for reference for those interested or in case Vinyet makes it back in to the iOS App Store.
Upload Video To Vine and Instagram
Vinyet makes uploading your premade videos to Vine and Instagram extremely easy. No more messing with Handbrake and .mp4 encoding settings. Vinyet does the processing for you.
Vinyet has direct access to the Camera Roll on your iPhone. So if you have a custom 6 or 15 second video clip saved on your computer, all you have to do is transfer it to your iPhone.
When I tested the app, I just emailed one of my videos to my iPhone, and then saved it to the camera roll.
Next I launched Vinyet, selected my video and choose which social network I wanted to upload my video to.
So just like that, after two simple steps, my video was posted. The ease and simplicity that Vinyet offers for uploading videos to Vine and Instagram makes it well worth the $1.99 in my opinion.
Please note that Vinyet still respects the time and size constraints of each network: Vine videos are ensured to be no shorter than 2s and no longer than 6s in length and 480×480 in size and Instagram videos are between 2s and 15s and 640×640 in size.
If all you want to do is upload your custom videos to Vine and Instagram, by all means download Vinyet today.
However, if you’re interested in making the best social videos possible, keep reading.
It’s Not A One-Trick App
The ability to upload custom videos to Vine and Instagram is really only a small part of what Vinyet can do.
It has so many other features that help you create and share video from within the app that deserve a mention.
To help you shoot better looking video, Vinyet includes:
- 23 cinema-quality video filters
- Adjustable Stop Motion settings (delay & duration)
- Access to the front and rear cameras
- Ability to mute the microphone
- Focus lock on/off
- Ghost Image capability
- LED torch on/off
Once you’ve created your video masterpiece and are ready to share it, this is what Vinyet can do with your video:
- Upload it directly to Facebook or YouTube
- Convert your video to an animated GIF
- Send your video in an email
- Copy the video to the clipboard and paste it into a text message
- Save the video to an App such as Evernote, Google Drive or DropBox
As you can see, Vinyet will help you create and share visually stunning video using the camera on your iPhone.
If you weren’t sold on the Vinyet before, you should be now. Go a grab it.
What About Android?
I know many of you are wondering if Vinyet is available for Android devices, and I’m sorry to say that it is not.
I reached out to the Arqball team that developed Vinyet to see if there are any plans for an Android version of their app, and this is what Jason Lawrence, Co-Founder of Arqball said:
Our plan is to see how things go with iOS Vinyet before we commit resources to an Android version. So far, Vinyet is looking like a good bet
I’d love to see the videos you create with Vinyet.

Thanks and I look forward to your checking out your videos!
