As an online video platform, we're dedicated to building relationships with best-of-breed partners to ensure our customers have the best options to meet their needs. Twistage-powered sites have always had the option to use a 3rd-party player like Flowplayer, but in integrating, we are literally turning this into a point-and-click option.
New York (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
Today, leading online video platform Twistage announces that it has partnered with popular web player Flowplayer. Twistage will include Flowplayer's Open Source video player as a pre-integrated component of its customizable platform, which currently offers the full suite of options video, covering ingest and encoding to media management to playback, measurement, and monetization.
Twistage provides businesses with a seamlessly integrated, completely customizable online video solution that allows customers to quickly and easily incorporate video into their existing digital assets. Flowplayer represents the latest integration into Twistage's rapidly developing partner ecosystem.
"We're excited to be working with a leading player company and equally excited to contribute back to the open source community, something we've already done with Flowplayer," said David Wadler, CEO and founder of Twistage. "As an online video platform, we're dedicated to building relationships with best-of-breed partners to ensure our customers have the best options to meet their needs. Twistage-powered sites have always had the option to use a 3rd-party player like Flowplayer, but in integrating, we are literally turning this into a point-and-click option."
Flowplayer is one of the web's most popular Open Source Flash video players. Having recently passed the Version 3 milestone, the player offers site owners a robust playback experience and a plugin model that can be used to extend that experience even further.
"It's great to have Flowplayer integrated with the Twistage platform," added Anssi Piirainen, Flowplayer's CEO. "The integration is particularly validating as it really demonstrates the power of the plugin architecture and flexibility that are core to Flowplayer 3. We are seeing rapid gains in popularity, and with Twistage, we will be expanding our user base even further."
Twistage's growing list of customers includes PerezHilton.com, Inc. and Fast Company magazines, Jive Software, Mochila, BlackPlanet.com, and more.
