Today we released a funky fresh new version of the Bitcasa Web App with a bright and light color theme and a smoother video experience. Check it out at: https://my.bitcasa.com

For users who already love to use the Bitcasa Web App for playing videos, performance and feature updates should make frame rates and overall viewing significantly better.  You can now play virtually any format of video, and we’re giving you a new HD button to play back in any resolution you choose! You can also browse through videos to easily return to where you left off, or skip ahead to your favorite part (coming soon to the mobile apps).

Last but not least, you now have the ability to track all your “Send to a Friend” links, so you can easily find, resend or delete your links any time. View your links here: https://my.bitcasa.com/account/send_links

Enjoy!

If Photography or Music is Your Passion, We Have You Covered!

Spinning a new high-end mix? Photographing an engagement shoot? If you’re passionate about music, photography or design, our latest updates to the my.bitcasa.com web portal were made with you mind!

We know that music aficionados embrace FLAC files because they maintain music’s integrity with no loss of quality. But these high fidelity formats can take up to six times the space of MP3 files! Now you don’t have to worry about running out of space. With Bitcasa’s added support for FLAC files plus our unlimited storage, you can stream & enjoy flawless music without worrying about space. Additional music types now supported include: “aac,” “f4a,” “m4a,” “mp3,” “oga,” “ogg,” “ac3,” “wav” and “wma.”

And for the photographers and graphic designers out there, we have some updates for you as well! You can now view RAW images on my.bitcasa.com. Much like FLAC, RAW images are the format of choice for many professional photographers, but they eat up space. With unlimited, secure storage — you can put those worries behind you.  RAW image types now supported include “3fr,” “arw,” “cr2,” “crw,” “dcr,” “dng,” “erf,” “kdc,” “mef,” “mrw,” “nef,” “orf,” “pef,” “raf,” “sr2″ and “x3f.”

We know that as photographers you’re responsible for protecting your client’s digital assets and ultimately their memories. With these changes we’ve made it easier for you to do your job knowing that your data is protected. Portfolios are also easily shared with your clients whether they are Bitcasa users or not.

So check out these updates to the Bitcasa web portal and let us know what you think! Also, would love to hear how you’re using Bitcasa.

A Fresh New Web Experience at my.bitcasa.com

Over the last few months our developers have been heads down working on creating a more intuitive and higher performing Web experience. Many of these changes were the direct result of what we heard from you and the stuff you care about.

Go to my.bitcasa.com from any browser (you don’t need to install Bitcasa first) and use it as a fast & easy way to stream your music, videos and photo albums anywhere you might be. The Web interface not only gives you access to all your content, but it also plays videos natively in your browser.

3. Shorter Send Links
We have taken a hint from the folks at Bitly and shortened our sharing links so they’re easier to include in your emails, Facebook posts, and tweets.

4. My Drive is the new Folders

We have renamed the “Folders” view to “My Drive” to better reflect all the content you have on Bitcasa. Click it to see what’s on your Infinite Drive. We will be doing this across all our applications for a more seamless experience.

5. A Better Photo Viewing Experience

We know that album art from your music collection can clutter your Photos view. We now filter for any small photos under 50kb in size to be excluded from the “Photos” section.

An improved Web experience is one of the many things we are working on and you’ll be the first to know as soon as we have any new updates.
