So it seemed like a good time to sit down with Ran Harnevo, AOL’s president of video, to talk about the company’s plans, and about broader trends in the industry.


Harnevo suggested that House of Cards on Netflix became “a defining moment” in 'a massive wave' in original programming on the web."

Disney Buys Maker Studios, and YouTube Investors Cheer - Re/code

Disney Buys Maker Studios, and YouTube Investors Cheer - Re/code | mvpx_Vid | Scoop.it
Now what?
@zbutcher's insight:

"Now it’s a done deal: As we first reported two weeks ago, Disney has indeed bought Maker Studios, the YouTube network that generates 5.5 billion views a month, for $500 million.


That number could swell up by another $450 million, depending on the way the property performs after the acquisition. So the total price could hit $950 million, but we won’t know for some time."

Firefox 28 Launches With Support For VP9 Video And Web Notifications In OS X Notification Center | TechCrunch

Firefox 28 Launches With Support For VP9 Video And Web Notifications In OS X Notification Center | TechCrunch | mvpx_Vid | Scoop.it

"Mozilla today launched the latest version of its Firefox browser. The main feature in this release was originally supposed to be support for the Windows 8 Metro mode, but as the organization announced last week, it decided to scrap this because of low user adoption during the beta process.


Without Windows 8 support, the new features in today’s release are relatively minor. They include support for VP9 video decoding and the OS X notification center, so that notifications from web apps can now appear there. Also new is support for volume control for HTML5 audio and video and support for WebM Opus audio."

Does the Freewheel acquisition mean that Comcast will jump into the online video space in a big way? | Portada-online | mvpx_Vid | Scoop.it

"Comcast has wrapped up its deal to buy FreeWheel, the Web video ad-serving company.The cable giant will end up paying US $360 million for the seven-year-old startup...


Is Comcast developing its own YouTube alternative?


Vanchesan adds that in 'recent years, media owners are distributing more and more original programming online as they can charge higher CPMs (relative to display ads/print ads) from advertisers.'This is a vital supplement to their declining TV ad revenue streams.'

There have also been clear indications that Comcast is developing its own YouTube alternative (or YouTube 'killer,’ if you will). The company is allegedly working closely with online video content creators to distribute their original programming through its set-top-boxes."

How to Make the Move to HEVC - Streaming Media Magazine

How to Make the Move to HEVC - Streaming Media Magazine | mvpx_Vid | Scoop.it

"It's still early in the game, but here's everything you need to know about moving to the next-generation video codec...


While few companies of any kind are actually making money from HEVC (H.265) today, the successor to H.264 will become increasingly important during the next 2–3 years, perhaps even earlier in some markets for some producers. So understanding the current status of the technology and how to encode and potentially deploy HEVC in the near term is very relevant for most streaming media producers. Accordingly, in this article, I’ll review the state of HEVC and take a high-level look at the first generation of HEVC encoders."

"Google-owned YouTube hasn’t had a serious competitor for years. But Yahoo would like to try: The Web giant has been working on a plan to lure some of YouTube’s most popular stars and networks to show their stuff on the site, according to several sources close to the situation.


The strategy in the works — which Yahoo hopes to launch in the next few months — is aimed at taking advantage of persistent complaints by both video creators and owners, who think that they don’t make enough money on YouTube."
