Two BIG announcements in the Online Social Media world this week!
1st - Cut Frame.TV (formerly SimplePhoto.tv) has added some key functionality that will now allow the view count to increase on embedded shows - I have sent them lots of hate mail about this. :)...Go here to see the rest of the updates!
Cut Frame.TV has definitely been my choice for posting and browsing videos because of it's "Nicheness" and the quality of the videos is better.
I hope their next update holds the aspect ratio of 16x9 videos and has a b/w semi-transparent branding to it. We all know that the viewers eye will go first to the brightest and then the warmest area of an image and so SPM's branding has red and white in it so it's kind of distracting whereas YouTube's is bigger but it's semi-transparent.
2nd - This might be a Mike Tyson type knockout for many of the other online social media sites out there. Apple and YouTube have teamed up to allow for displaying of YouTube videos through Apple TV.
I just got my TV shipped in. Thank you to the Barlow Fam for taking good care of it for me. :) ....and I'll probably be getting the Apple TV setup today and to be able to display YouTube videos on there is very very very cool.
