Napster founders, Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning, have started hiring developers to create their latest venture, Airtime, which aims to make video chatting ‘social’.

Details about the duo’s new venture are still scant six months on since it was first mentioned, but the start-up now has a website on which it describes itself as a “live social video company”, with a small team who “share a passion for using latest video technology.

Parker and Fanning, who both rose to fame after creating the ground-breaking music filesharing site sharing Napster in 1999, have said Airtime has been inspired by Chatroulette, and the way it allowed random people to communicate by video chat.

Airtime, Fanning said last October, would build on this type of communication and “smash people together” using video chat and social networks.

The company, which has $8m (£5m) backing from US actor Ashton Kutcher, Black Eyed Peas musician Will.i.am and Justin Bieber’s agent Scott Braun, now has a Facebook sign-up button for early access and is hiring for engineers.
