MediaCrush is free website to share photos online with anyone. Along with the photos, MediaCrush lets you share GIF, audio, and video files. Why I really like MediaCrush is because you require no registration to share photos and other media online.
I really like that if you are sharing a GIF or an audio file, then the recipient can play the GIF or audio file directly in the browser. It’s a really cool feature as this makes sharing of media files really easy. The quality of the GIF remains loseless and the GIF file is converted into HTML 5. It is a great compression feature that reduces the GIF size and makes loading of GIF very fast.
I also like that your privacy is respected while using MediaCrush. MediaCrush does not store any information about the user.
MediaCrush lets you upload media and share it with your friends using a unique link. You can send the link to anyone with whom you want to share the media.
Below I have posted a small clip that shows the GIF that I have uploaded to MediaCrush website. You can opt to replay GIF using look and you can pause and resume the GIF anytime. You can see how the GIF will look like to the recipient.
Working with MediaCrush to Share Photos, Videos with Friends:
MediaCrush is easy to use. The user interface of the website is very simple and offers the option to upload the media files directly. In order to share photos online (or any other media file) you can simply drag and drop individual or multiple media files in the upload box. Alternatively you can browse for the file and then upload them. That’s all.
In order to get the link all you have to do is click on the preview of the uploaded file. You can send the link to anyone with whom you want to share the media files.
Note that I have tested MediaCrush to upload a video from local storage and I tried to upload video using URL as well. But none of the feature worked for me.

MediaCrush is very simple to use to share photos online and other media. Uploading can be easily done by simple browsing or drag and drop option. However the option to copy and paste the files did not work for me. I really like the option to view the media file in the browser itself.
