What we’re all about

Hey everyone. Riff here… let’s deviate from the “what’s happening?” and “what will happen?” to something more relevant for you – the publisher: what does all this mean for you? As I sit and think about how to introduce the team (friends to me) and the service (passion for me) to the rest of you, I am reminded of the long, arduous and fun journey… we...

Brightcove 3

Someone’s leaked Brightcove 3 screenshots, and you can have a look at them on Techcrunch. The screenshots are nothing short of awesome, and kudos to Brightcove’s interaction design team- we honor you. However, I think maybe…just maybe…Brightcove is focusing a disproportionate amount of effort on publisher control, when they really could be doing something more about end-user... 

Announcing: a Pricing Model

Announcing: a Pricing Model
It took a lot of coffee, tea, Coke, and red-ink on a white-board to come up with this, but we finally have a pricing model in place. We split up our pricing into two parts. First, we charge for the Software platform: $49. That’s a one-time fee, enabling access to all the cool publishing and distribution features available in Marcellus.

Important dates are October 05, 2008 (we start accepting...

This is excellent, excellent news, especially because we’re already knit together tightly with the Amazon S3 storage and delivery platform. Once live, the CDN service will enable our content publishers to distribute content to their viewers globally- a lot faster than what it is today, and...

Disqusions enabled.
Yesterday, we added support for the Disqus commenting system. Many thanks to Daniel Ha at Disqus for being real patient with us during this process. Now, content owners can enable threaded discussions for each video, with a single click. This is how easy it is. And here is how it looks when placed next to your video SHARETHIS.addEntry({ title: "Disqusions enabled.", url: "http://blog.marcellus.tv/disqusions-enabled/"... 

When a blog is really a diary

We‘re about two weeks away from launch. So I don’t expect a lot of you to be reading this. However, documentation always has a beginning, and this will be ours. Even if it is more a diary than a blog. A few hours ago, Google launched Google Video for Enterprises. The good news is that it is NOT free. It costs $50/user account/year, as part of the Google Apps Premier package. We’re...
