Our site has a solutions section that showcases sites and applications where we have used our media framework in the past. In a way it provides a glimpse into the legacy and evolution of the framework. Unfortunately it doesn’t paint the entire picture, as our largest and most notable solutions haven’t been posted due client PR departments. Sometimes we get a break, mind sets change and we get the privilege to show them out of the blue. Today was one of those days when PR mindset changed. Many thanks to Jim and Paul for making this happen for us.
Long story short, we posted the Cartoon Network and Jetstream video players we developed to our solutions page. Though these applications are about 3 years old, they still tell an interesting story. When first developed, they utilized Windows Media through an abstract bridge in Flash. The conversion to Flash video was actually seamless in that we didn’t change code, we replaced the internal “playback”.
