we intend to roll out an iphone application and air application that will use your auth details to pull back each of your subdomains and we will have a frontend mashup of events - imagine like a video twitter for conferences and personal cvs that really stand out.
so one of the things that your subdomain can do is live switch out to different ustream accounts - we did cover it for yahoo live but they are shutting down, we will cover most of the live streaming sites by the end of the year, in conjunction with other tricks we have up our sleeves your going to love the live broadcasting features.
One of the things we wanted to speed up for a small content producer was the distribution and remove that issue of having to update/make rss feeds for custom encodes. We have therefore created in the admin ability to select a destination, upload there, convert to many types and put in seperate directories and build a custom rss feed inside each directory so users of that device/format can get it directly. You could also if you wanted put these through feedburner to see what sort of subscription you are getting
blinkx and reuters both have massive video archives and we wanted to crossover and blur the line between social video media and commercial media. we are supporting as many apis as we can.
right now we are building basic css themes that are fast loading but we are also outsourcing custom designs that work with our engine. we aim to decouple the design from the code but this was hard to start with because of the way we are grabbing the media from the crawler. it's something we plan on doing. we are able to customize and style a theme to suit most businesses.
we currently support chipin.com for people to give donations - why do we have this on subdomains? - well, most of the time when small content producers or videobloggers go and spend there own time to cover an event they do it because the love for it. love does not come cheap thou and i think it's a polite way to show some love to the content producers for making free content streamed to the world.
one of the cool things about a rezpondr subdomain is that you can set it between two dates - so it might just be for a podcamp that you want the theme to work so you might only want to capture peoples videos that they post between two dates because you know they will be live streaming or onroute to/from the event - it's a useful feature. You can also do this per service type or the whole subdomain.
just a simple hover effect when involving pictures, the picture will display in a hover instead of having to go to the website to view it (most of the picture rows will support this) - we are considering also bringing in the comments to be able to reply to these as well.
for the destinations part of rezpondr we not only allow for using one of the best and oldest running video hosts blip.tv (the original videoblogger home) but your own ftp site and if you have neither our super fast and reliable amazon s3 hosting space. we work out the bandwidth and space based on the transcoding credits pricing.
when your at an event or conference it can be very difficult to have some kind of structure as your racing from party to party and having management tools makes planning a lot easier - we have built a google calendar that integrates with the frontend tabs to show events coming up and will post them to an account of your choosing on twitter minutes before.
