UPDATED 6/25 (see comments section) Hey everyone – as you’ve probably noticed, we have been producing a lot more video in 2010, which has been the plan all along in ramping up our digital efforts and providing all the exclusive coverage we can for you on revolutionsoccer.net.
You may also have noticed on the revolutionsoccer.net homepage (and if you’ve watched the live version of this year’s RevsWrap shows) that we have been using a brand new video player/interface. This video player is part of the new MLS platform, and we’re excited to be fully switching over to the new video player over the next week or two. Check out the video player here.
What does this mean for you? It means a faster, higher-quality video experience with all the same types of content we’ve been providing throughout 2010. The new interface makes it easy to find all of our regular video pieces, as well as themed shows like the KA & DBarnes Video Blog, RevsWrap, and the new Box to Box show with Kyle McCarthy and Jeff Lemieux.
The biggest difference is that you’ll need to download Microsoft Silverlight to view our videos. If you don’t already have Silverlight installed, you can get it here. It’s a quick download/install and and works on both Windows and Mac platforms.
So take a look at the new player, watch a few videos and let us know what you think! As always, we welcome any and all feedback.
Finally, we have been getting a lot of questions about the new website in general. We’d love to have launched our new site already, but unfortunately that has yet to happen. We are working closely with the folks at MLS to get the new site launched, but it’s just not at a point where we are ready to switch from our current website yet. We will provide you with updates right here on the blog as we have them.
