A Major Brightcove.com Update

Now you can tell the world what you think about the latest TMZ video on brightcove.com. (If you admit to watching TMZ videos, of course). As of early this morning, Brightcove entered the world of spam and "first post!" with a commenting system on video pages. I already see a lot of amusing comments (and user thumbnails) on the site.

A lot of other changes were included in the update to brightcove.com, including a major performance increase, more ways to browse for new content, a fix for view counts, and a list of the newest videos. Sorry, but no Aftermix yet.

Brightcove.com just got better

We've updated Brightcove.com with a ton of great enhancements that have us really excited, and we just can’t wait for you to check them out. Find what’s new and most popular by browsing updated sections like Celebs, TV Faves , or News. When you’ve found that gem or rotten tomato leave your own comment, and invite your friends to voice their opinion. And it’s even easier to share videos with quick access to send an email, grab an embed code and integrated one-step blogging.

New and Most Popular Videos
Love Gwen and her fellow chart-topping music crew? Now you can cruise the Music section, and all other areas of our site, by the most popular and newest videos, as well as by channel. The latest additions are at the top so you’ll never miss the newest releases. Plus, when watching a video we offer up a ton of recommendations to check, so you’ll have a built-in playlist ready for clicking.
Sharing is Nice
When you find the next greatest viral video (like our indie fave Chirping Crickets), sharing the clip with your friends is simple. Grab the embed code to paste to your site or blog, e-mail to friends, or post to Digg, Delicious, and Facebook. If blogging proper is strictly your thing, you can slap the video up directly with the “Blog This” function right inside the player’s Menu button.

Leave your Comments
We know you’re watching videos, but we’re eager to read how you truly feel. Let those emotions and opinions pour out: make your mark by adding comments to any video on Brightcove.com. Whether you’re dishing out praise about the dense, flavorful texture of Grandma's Passover Matzah Balls, leaving a digital hi-five for those Banquet Skaters, or even disagreeing with someone’s content, we want to hear it. (But please try to play nice.)
After working hard at Brightcove, we like to sit back and enjoy some videos that remind us of warmer climes. Here in Boston, we're trying to leave winter behind, and love to dream of relaxing on the beaches of Portugal.
