Embedded Player Rocks!

I found out last week that now has a NetBeans branded player and also offers embedded code for its movies so that you can easily place them on your own site. I'm trying it out here for the first time. I simply went to the Community page, saw Fabrizio's cool movie about blueMarine (which he showed at his JavaOne Technical Session), clicked "Read more" under "Brief description" and then saw the tags that I needed to copy:

Then I pasted them into this blog entry. The result is very nice. Small space taken up, professional look and feel, smooth running of video, responsive forward/back buttons, etc.

Note: This particular video includes sound, so if that's a potential issue, make sure to plug your headset in before starting the movie:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script> <script type="text/javascript"> </script>

Be aware that... the embedded player offers a higher resolution and better quality videos than YouTube!

Also note another change, which is that it is now easier for you to submit a video, with a more streamlined form and the usage of keywords for search engine indexing. You can see the new form live at You are recommended to upload a "flv" file format for video, although "mov" and others are also acceptable. Optimally, it should be under 100MB in size.


flash? Bleee.

That's gotta be the most beautiful swing app I've ever seen. Great showcase for the netbeans platform.
