Hi folks, It's been a ton of fun here at Macworld, with some of the usual suspects pimpin' vloggin and various products and such. Wish all of you could have been here.
With that, I wanna pimp something I'm pretty proud of, especially in light of all the recent debates on flash video and RSS and such. Over at Audioblog.com, we've enabled folks to upload video and post it to their blog via a flash player. And because of that, I've generally been reluctant to make too much noise about it here (well that, and I don't wanna be too spammy-- don't worry, I won't start :P ) Yesterday, we turned on some new features including, enabling links to the video file to appear under the flash player (this is for the feedburner follks). Or, you could just upload video and post it directly to a pure RSS feed. The other thing is that we'll on-the-fly transcode pretty much any video format into Quicktime, ready to go for the video-capable iPod. I tend to believe we *can* have it both ways. Most visitors click the flash player on my site (especially first time ones), as well as folks who want to be able to take the video with them, watch it where ever, or do whatever with it (since I'm encouraging of remix/mashup culture from time to time). I'm just happy I don't have to hack it manually, and it's all on- the-fly. It took a little longer than expected, however, I'm okay with that. I hope it works flawlessly for any of you as it has for us assaulting it with sledgehammers and flamethrowers during testing. :-) Thanks for the good words and support we've received this far. The servers are running a bit on the hot side, but we're on the case. Cheers, Eric Rice audioblog.com ericrice.com Yahoo!
