VideoEgg Publisher for Mac
. The VideoEgg Publisher is a small website plugin that simplifies the way videos are captured, edited, and published online. Leveraging a "universal adapter" that captures directly from hundreds of devices and reads dozens of formats, the VideoEgg Publisher allows internet users to painlessly publish video in a format that anyone can watch without worrying about player compatibilities, encoding settings, or extra software, according to the company. "Unlike most Mac-created videos, which are posted in Apple's QuickTime format, videos posted with the VideoEgg Publisher for Mac play back in the Flash format, which can be almost universally viewed by both Mac and PC users." The VideoEgg Publisher for the Mac will be available by January 16th.
"With the launch of the VideoEgg Publisher for Mac, cross-platform video sharing has become a lot easier for Mac users," said Kevin Sladek, co-founder of VideoEgg, Inc. "We're particularly excited to bring the VideoEgg Publisher for Mac to market because so much interesting digital video is created on the Mac platform."
The company says it is offering a "straightforward approach" to online video publishing, which focuses on simplifying digital video and makes it as easy to post videos to the web as it is to post photos." The VideoEgg Publisher streamlines video capture from a digital camcorder, digital camera, video file, Web cam or mobile phone. Once captured, users can simply upload the video--without any regard for the video formats, encoders, players or servers.
The VideoEgg Publisher uses a simple and familiar Mac-like drag-and-drop interface. Users can also perform basic edits before encoding and posting the video.
The VideoEgg Publisher's simplicity enables many new opportunities for online video publishing, such as adding video to classified ads, real estate sites, personal profiles on dating and social-networking sites, auction postings, as well as the ability to now share a video with family and friends across the country or world. Video can also be added to personal websites, blogs and emails, and kids can be creative by adding video to their homework assignments.
The VideoEgg Publisher is also available immediately for integration into partner Websites.
