CBC’s NEW Video Player…
[digg=http://digg.com/television/CBC_s_NEW_Video_Player]The whole point of ye olde blog here was to help people find more high quality programming to watch on this here internet. (you know what they got on that internet?)
While browsing the net today I came across some new programming to watch. As you have read in the past I am just gushing over CTV’s webplayer, here and again here, in all the excitement I kind of ignored the CBC’s new offering. I am not entirely sure when it came online. My LIST of stuff to watch included va
rious CBC product, but I nearly missed their new player. The new player, works in Firefox 3, haven’t tried it yet in Ub
untu, so someone will have to check that out for me. The look is clear, and clean, and very modern. It actually looks a lot sharper than the CTV site (Sorry Johnathan) but I wonder if it is cross platform. Check it out my MacOSX and Ubuntu friends.
Currently the CBC player seems to only show clips of stuff, although I found myself enjoying many of the Rick Mercer and Air Farce clips, it will be interesting to see this player mature and add content.
