Ready to Play: Public Media Innovators Discuss Audio and Video Players
2:00 PM ET Wednesday, May 30, 2012
An hour of demos and technical conversation.
Is presenting audio and video to your digital audience a smooth process? Do you use COVE? Flowplayer? JW Player? Have you experimented with HTML5? Or some other custom player? Join our first Public Media Innovators conversation where we’ll demonstrate and discuss what public media digital innovators are doing in this space. This first of a kind webinar conversation will include both a demonstration and a somewhat technical dialog about the rationale for the various approaches.
Matthew Tift, Wisconsin Public Radio, will discuss the new HTML5 audio player, with a Flash fallback and playlist functionality, that was developed for ttbook.org
David Dickinson, Wisconsin Public Television, will share the customized JW Player and lightweight CMS they built using the COVE API to combine and promote local and national video together on their site.
Max Duke, PBS Interactive, will share the highlights of the new COVE 2.0 product, how to leverage its features (like API access) and what it means for station video content in the future.
Andrew Kuklewicz, PRX, will demonstrate the pros and cons of the PRX HTML5 jplayer for audio with a Flash fallback, and we’ll discuss how this can be done for video.
Javaun Moradi, NPR, will talk about NPR's Infinite Player, an experiment in continuous listening, the APIs that make it possible, and what it might mean for a local station listening experience.
