Jeremy Allaire, Chairman and CEO of Brightcove announced a limited BETA of Brightcove's pay media system which will allow you to earn income off your videos by inserting ads in a number of creative ways and by pay per view. The Brightcove system handles all payment processing.
Also, in his preview of new features, Allaire showed us a feature that will allow QuickTime uploads which will be transcoded to FLASH by Brightcove. That's a big deal for me, since it takes one step out of the publishing process and doesn't require me to invest in yet another piece of compression software.
Unfortunately, the screens that Jeremy was demoing on were not displaying his system too clearly and the connection back to his remote system was slow.
Now that I have a MacBook Pro, sites with Brightcove installed are pretty speedy. It wasn't that way on my old PowerBook 667Mhz.
