Last week the Copenhagen video player has gone live. The player shows live video reports filmed by the youth delegation of VROM (Dutch ministry). The player shows live video streams being broadcast from mobile phone video cameras. Reporters don’t have to upload anything at all, they just switch on their phone camera and the video appears on the website. Older video reports get added to the archives automatically.
Through the website www.volgkopenhagenlive.nl numerous reports have been streamed, giving visitors a personal look behind the scenes of the conference.
Apart from the Live video, the flash player includes a youtube channel viewer. This viewer analyses a youtube channel by converting a youtube RSS feed. Then, using the new youtube AS3 API, the player is able to load videos from a specific youtube user.
