How great is this –
Obviously I’ve been watching a lot of video lately, but I came across a new (beta) video service called Soapbox (see my previous post). It has the MSN branding so it obviously is a Microsoft product. The great part is that they are using FLASH to deliver the video content (right-click the video for proof). Boy, if that is not a concession in the web video format wars, I don’t know what is. The Demetri Martin video is funny too.
It’s funny, but when a company like Microsoft can quietly admit defeat by adopting Flash video format -I kinda get nostalgic for the days of four thousand codecs and the times where I couldn’t watch a WMV on my MAC. Why do we all just have to get a long with FLVs?
