Comcast – E! online – web video gallery

This one was a great project to be a part of and I got a chance to work with a great guy in the Flash community. While working on FEARnet.com’s video players (will be posting those projects in the near future), I worked with Felix Turner as he was also doing some contract work with Eonline.com. We wrapped up a pretty cool ‘year in review’ celebrity project and he began work on a video gallery for E! I went to another project and eventually was handed his work. Can’t say enough good things about Mr. Turner and his code.

So I picked up this project and continued development for a good 6-7 months. It supported Brightcove’s video platform (they migrated over to thePlatform’s feed services) and uses DART video ads. Most of the work I did for this was refactoring, adding new features, and bug squashing. A project I’m proud to say I was a part of.

Working with the team out in LA was a great experience for me, I was able to work on this very cool project, went out to the E! Offices in LA a few times (once was in January with freezing temps in Philly and a sweet 70-ish temps. People were wearing coats out there…). Hopefully our paths will cross again and we’ll get to do more work together.

Here’s the live version up now

Testing out a new platform

Well, seems I’m now going to start testing out thePlatform (http://www.theplatform.com/about/) and what media services they offer. Really I’m now in the read-it-like-a-book articles, blogs and just about anything I can get my hands on. Funny thing is, they’re saying they only support swf assets from CS4? ouch, looks like I need to get my hands on a copy. As much as I complained about Brightcove, it was pretty easy to use and develop for. I’m already having a hell of a time getting set up and running some demos……
