Damn You Brightcove!!

i used to go nuts when brightcove had their periodic meltdowns since about a third of the video on our site is delivered using their platform, including the players we built on top of their API. maybe it’s because it’s friday and i’m too tired to really care, but brightcove is down in a big, but not blogged about, kind of way (i searched blogsearch.google.com for any breaking news and news.google.com and not a peep).

i guess in a positive kind of way it’s nice to know that much bigger companies than ScribeMedia come to a crashing halt sometimes too. quite often my google mail or google calendar has issues, moreso than i would expect from the good empire.

it’s nice to know that sometimes other companies, behind the curtains, are running around putting out fires.

and as brightcove goes, so goes half the publishing industry that relies on brightcove to deliver their online video. yes, that means you wsj.com, discovery.com, washingtonpost.com, cbs.com, fx.com and the history channel.

fortunately for us, much bigger fish are yelling at brightcove right now. doing my job for me. as i said before, i’m too tired to yell…or use my shift key to capitalize letters.
