5min is a place to find short video solutions for any practical question and a forum for people wanting to share their knowledge. The vision behind 5min is a very simple one: any solution can be visually explained in no more than 5 minutes. Our aim is to create the first communal Life Videopedia allowing users from all over the globe to contribute their knowledge by sharing visual guides covering arts, business, fashion, sports, health, tech, food, and much more.

5min's basic philosophy is that everybody is an expert in something. The video era gives us the technological opportunity to share our collective knowledge and gather it onto one platform. This is what 5min aims to be – a platform for users, a platform for creators, a platform for talent and
anyone that has something to teach.

In order to bring to life our vision of creating a comprehensive Life Videopedia, 5min gives each creator a private promotional Studio – a space to show his/her skills, and share his/her secrets.

Users of 5min also benefit from a visual illustration of any solution through a Smart Player. Unlike other video sites on the internet, 5min has created a video player adjusted specifically for the Videopedia vision. While uploading a movie, the creator can enhance it by adding a textual storyboard to the video – helping all of us understand his demonstration.

The 5min project needs your knowledge! We encourage you to take a camera 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.
