Vine will be rebranded as Vine Camera when it shuts down

So, it turns out we were wrong people. Vine won’t exactly be going away. According to Twitter, Vine will be rebranded as Vine Camera, and you can still record 5-6 second videos, but you’re just going to have to post them directly to Twitter or save them directly to your camera roll and post them on other social media.

Users can save their Vines to their devices as of today. But you’ll get different results using different devices.

The file of Vines that you download from vine.co will include an index.html file that contains your Vine captions, along with the number of likes, comments and revines. If you download your Vines from the app, you will receive only your video files saved to your camera roll with no captions or additional information.

If you want to do that, act fast as once the service gets rebranded, you can’t. There’s also an option to receive an email with links to your Vines if grabbing everything individually sounds like a pain. Note that the longer video clips Vine previously experimented with are not part of this download. Vine is also trying to help creators by displaying pop-ups asking users if they want to follow the creator on Twitter.

The website will be switching on archive mode in January 2017, but Twitter hasn’t disclosed it’s plans on till when the videos will be on the site.
