VidCon revels in YouTube - Entertainment News, Technology News One by one, the top executives at YouTube took turns taking the stage Friday at Century City’s Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel to give an overview of their business. But this presentation wasn’t for entertainment execs or shareholders; it was made to a mostly teenage crowd of 2,500 who rarely let a minute go by without unleashing screams of delight. Though YouTube CEO Salar Kamangar might have hoped they were cheering him, the deafening peals were more likely directed at some of the site’s biggest draws, from Buck Hollywood to Mystery Guitar Man, who joined him to tout YouTube’s latest developments. Welcome to VidCon, a three-day convention that ended Saturday celebrating the raucous subculture surrounding YouTube, where the consumers and producers of the Web’s most popular videos are often one in the same. “You guys don’t just watch the news, you make the news,” Kamangar told the crowd, predicting they would give rise to the next CNN or MTV. Yet the YouTubers are still making money.

Webcam max Sonido.Podcasts ¿Qué es un podcast? : ¿qué contiene?, ¿cómo se escucha? ¿Qué es un 'podcast'? Un podcast es un archivo de audio, normalmente un MP3, que se distribuye automáticamente mediante RSS, y se puede descargar de Internet y grabar en el ordenador u otro dispositivo. Las principales ventajas del podcasting frente a la simple colocación de archivos de sonido en una página web es la sindicación, es decir, la posibilidad de que un programa o un servicio web recuerde visitar cada cierto tiempo las fuentes y comprobar si hay archivos nuevos que descargarse para escuchar. Frente al streaming, o retransmisión de sonido mediante Internet, el podcasting ofrece independencia, movilidad y libertad de horario. RSS es un estándar empleado por infinidad de publicaciones online, especialmente weblogs, como ésta (escucha el rap de la violencia en las aulas), para distribuir titulares, resúmenes y enlaces o textos completos. ¿Cómo se escucha? ¿Dónde se encuentran los 'podcasts'?

Jeff's Quick Guide to TV on the Net (TV/IP) - July, 2006 « My Summer of "Video on the Net" | Main | Mets pull off 10th Inning Victory over Cubs » Jeff's Quick Guide to TV on the Net (TV/IP) Disintermediation of TV Distribution Outlets, or Doing to Television what we've Now Done to Voice In gearing up for the Fall Video on the Net Conference , I've been exploring recent developments in both the "video on the Net" space, and what I am terming the "tv on the Net" space. It turns out that there really has been a paradigm shift in the way in which "tv", not just "video", is being delivered. During the past twelve months, as the momentum for Broadband TV has snowballed, an increasing number of media companies have decided to take their content and make it available for viewing on the Internet. Some of the sites referenced restrict viewing to certain geographic areas based on their support of digital rights management. While most of the content listed below is available for free, some of it is being offered on a subscription basis.
(Exclusive) YouTube's New Strategy: Create a Network Of Networks YouTube is now showing approximately 3 billion videos a day. A growing proportion of those are shown with ads—more than 2 billion a week—and YouTube as a business is expected to pass $1 billion in revenue next year. But when it comes to making money, some videos do better than others. Professionally-produce videos attract the most ad dollars. For YouTube, it is all about scale, and networks of loosely aligned online video producers scale better than individual shows and viral-video phenoms. YouTube can then help sell advertising targeted at these more professional networks of Web series and shows, and that scales better than supporting individual YouTube producers. In this view, each network is like a channel, and YouTube is the new cable system or MSO (multiple system operator). Update: YouTube denies there is any new strategy or organization focused on Networks.
8 Awesome Mashups Made Possible by APIs This series is supported by PayPal X Innovate 2009, PayPal’s first dedicated developer conference. Register for $49 with the code ppblog3 or join us at $50 if you are a student. We here at Mashable are big fans of mashup services — it's our name, after all! In this feature we'll celebrate some of the great mashups we know and love that were made possible by the existence of APIs. Without getting too far into techno-babble land, APIs basically define a set of ways other third-party programmers can access the data and some of the functionality of a web service. Thanks to APIs, new programs can be built up that take advantage of one or more services in ways the original creators might not have intended or even imagined. Without further ado, let's take a look at some of the great examples of mashup services out there using a number of different APIs in a variety of different realms and topic areas. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Escucha música online Últimamente se está hablando muchísimo de Stage6, sus índices y la televisión online. Pero si nos pasamos al ámbito musical también podemos encontrar muchos servicios que nos permiten escuchar online la música que nos gusta y no me refiero a buscar canciones por Google. Hay diferentes tipos de servicios en este aspecto, como las redes sociales (iLike, Musocity...), radios personalizadas online (Last.fm, Pandora...), pero si queremos escuchar la música que nos gusta y más importante, que elegimos nosotros y no la que nos recomiendan o nos generan según un artista, necesitamos otros servicios. Me he tomado la libertad de seleccionar cinco servicios para escuchar música online que creo que son de lo mejorcito que se puede encontrar, tanto por su interfaz y funcionalidad como por el número de canciones que ofertan. Blogmusik Lo llevo utilizando desde hace mucho tiempo y es sin duda uno de los mejores. Fintune Fintune nos permite crear playlists con canciones que buscamos. Radio.blog.club
