Fall is movie time!

November 2, 2006

What’s coming up soon on you ask? Plenty. First we’ve got these election thingees to get past and then immediately after Grouper and Sony will bring you something to take your mind off of all that yacking and fighting — Sony Movie Classic (to be granted a swankier name by launch date, I promise) film and TV clips.

This just in. I swear, even as I was pressing the post button, execs were pounding their way down the hallway waving a piece of paper that held the big decision. The New channel will be called ScreenBites. Look for it to appear on next week.

Yes, I’m talking to you, nobody else here. Check out ScreenBites today

Grouper Video Steps Out and Steps It Up A Notch

July 25, 2006

Embedded video players are nothing new but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be improved. Grouper’s player gives users the freedom to dress up their blog with something truly unique.

Not only do we make it insanely easy to publish video on your site (with one-click publishing support for MySpace, Friendster, Blogger, and WordPress) but viewers will also be able to interact with the video in a number of clever ways without ever having to leave the comfort of the blog. Tell friends, view video comments, even publish the video to their own blog all without leaving the experience the publisher intended.

Take a look for yourself:
