Microsoft PressPass Silverlight Player

September 15th, 2008


With the release of Silverlight 2.0 final around the corner. Microsoft has started shifting some Microsoft sites to Silverlight and creating new services using Silverlight around their sites too.

One of these new things is the Microsoft PressPass Silverlight Player. this SL Video Player serves the most relevant videos coming from Microsoft and are added to the Embeddable Player as they are released.

What is interested is the design of what they are now pushing as the new Standard Silverlight Video Player. it comes with Quick sharing options for Social Bookmarking, the embed code, email and also provides with direct download links for the videos.  if this Silverlight Player got all that. how come something like that cannot be done in the same way for video coming from other companies like Yahoo and Google. seeing this as the standard Silverlight Video Player. makes wonder how good third parties Silverlight Players and Flex Video Players are going to be later on.

Right now. the PressPass Silverlight Players is showing the Ads from the Microsoft Branding Awareness Consumer Campaign made by Crispin Porter + Bogusky  with Bill Gates and Seinfeld that have caught quite a storm in the last days on and off the internet.

JibJab Obama – McCain 2008 “Time for some Campaignin”

July 16th, 2008


Another USA election means that JibJab gets to do another election based JibJab video song. but this time around it happens directly in a Widget that gets to have the advancements from the last 4 years that are of course INMENSE when comparing to the older ways of posting a video.

Now the jibjab Election Song “Time for some Campaigning” based ironically and sarcastically in bob dylan`s “Times are changing”. can count with High Spread Sharing (via gigya), Better resolution video, optimized bandwidth consume, Widget Metrics, Widget Ads, Widget Marketing, Interactivity,etc.

Things that are now getting to be standard but shows how much things have changed in the last 4 years. another thing that has changed is that this video must have taken a lot more of time to do than the old one and no doubt it had a bigger budget.

You can also get to star in it if you want to and send it to your friends as a sendable e-card. which pretty much means that if you send it to someone they can watch the video and get to see you appear in it.

Slide SuperPokeFest: Vh1 to superpoke you. wait… what?

July 2nd, 2008


Ok. the idea of personal messages appearing in TV during a show segment is nothing new. that is something MTV has been doing for years now.but that is not the news. the news in here is that Superpoke will sponsor a new reality tv show called “I Love Money” in Vh1

( you know. that Widget-App that has stormed the world at facebook and now has jumped to MySpace and also has been copied everywhere?. yeah.that one.)

When would you have thought that there would be a Widget  popular enough to be sponsoring a new TV show?. if this is a sign of the times already just imagine what the next decade holds us.

Well. the idea just like in MTV is for personal messages to appear during a show. but those messages will be chosen and generated from SuperPoke. so if you get selected your animated superpoke will appear in TV as the same time it does what it is supposed to do in the web.

There will be 10,000 Superpokes scheduled to appear during this SuperPokeFest things at Vh1.

Here you can see how the madness will look like.
