About 5min

5min is a place to find short video solutions for practical questions and a place for people to share their knowledge.

The idea behind 5min is very simple: any solution can be visually explained in no more than 5 minutes. Our goal is to create the first communal Life Videopedia allowing users from all over the globe to contribute their knowledge by sharing visual guides in areas such as arts, business, fashion, sports, health, tech, food, and much more.

5min's basic philosophy is that everybody is an expert in something and has something to teach others, so why not share that knowledge for the better of the whole? That's why we created a place to gather that collective knowledge onto one platform.

5min develops software and infrastructure for online video communities. Our website, 5min.com, was developed in-house at our R&D center in Israel.

So what's so special about 5min?

For starters, the Smart Player. To complement the Videopedia vision and bridge the gap between textual and visual information, we developed a special player that allows viewers to watch the video in slow motion or frame by frame, zoom in and out, and more. It also gives the video creator the option to make a storyboard that helps others better understand the demonstration.

In addition, 5min gives each creator a personal promotional Studio – a space to showcase their skills and share their secrets.

5min needs your your knowledge! Pick up a camera, show the world what you're good at and be part of our community. If you know other talented people, invite them to contribute as well.

After all, we all have something to learn from each other. This is the place to start.
