Catch the Philippine Blog Awards 2009 livestream

September 10, 2009 | 1 Comment

Can’t make it to the Philippine Blog Awards on October 9? Flippish will be streaming the awards night live on its website. And it won’t be a delayed, low-quality stream, but something that will rival TV productions:

This event is dappled in awesomeness. We’re trying something new this year — a live stream coverage of the event over the Internet courtesy of Flippish. If you’re expecting fixed point webcam quality work with a 30 second delay, well we’re out to prove you wrong. The live coverage has similar production value as on television, except that everything will be streamed via a dedicated line over the Internet. For those who will be unable to join us on that day, the live stream is actually the best way to follow the awards night.

Enjoy this teaser video too:

VideoPress launches on WordPress.com

May 14, 2009 | No Comments Yet

VideoPress is a new upgrade feature created by the Automattic team for WordPress.com that lets users create high-definition streaming video for their blogs. It’s also great for video podcasting since it crunches all the necessary work you: videos are iTunes and Miro compatible, and they play in the right frame rates you uploaded them with.

Although there’s no official word yet on when this will be available for self-hosted WordPress sites, you’re advised to create your own WordPress.com account to take advantage of the plugin and then embed the created videos on your WordPress.org blog.

Plus, the VideoPress framework is open source, so we can expect to see more free-flowing improvements to it in the future.
