Subscriber Update: HTML5 Theater Mode

By snide

Build playlists with Whiskey Media's new HTML5 video player.

Hey all. The Whiskey Media engineering team continues to try and deliver on our promise of adding new features for our members on a fairly consistent basis. Last month saw the introduction of Video RSS feeds so that you could download videos directly through iTunes and yesterday Mike Horn (gpbmike) added a new HTML5 full screen player to our video arsenal.  


 
Unfortunately, the new player only works in browsers that support the H.264 codec since that's what we use to compress our videos. For now that means only Safari and Chrome, but we should have IE9 support in there pretty soon as well. If you have any issues feel free to PM gpbmike and let him know what's up. We've got plenty of ideas for the player, but wanted to get this basic version out first before we moved into crazy territory.  
 
If I haven't said it before, thank you for helping us keep these goofy web sites running. We appreciate the help and hope that we can continue providing you with stellar features, support, and hijinks for a long time. If you aren't a member, what are you waiting for? You can get in on that action before Friday's live show starts at 4PM.
