Welcome to DVR with Flash!

Today we published the first of a 2-part series showing how to use DVR functionality with Flash Media Server 3.5 and User Generated Content. David Hassoun from Real Eyes Media is the author of this in-depth 6-page article that shows how developers can create a DVR-enabled stream using Flash Player and DVR a playback solution from scratch.

As we all look for ways to monetize content, one thing is clear – the longer you can engage a viewer, the more opportunities you have to draw revenue. DVR functionality will change the way we consume live video on the web by allowing the developer to create new ways to interact with live events including Instant Replay, live Clipping, instant VOD, Restart and jump-to-live.
