Using Adobe Photoshop CS5, Illustrator CS5, and a little bit of Flash Professional CS5, you’ll step through the creative process to generate custom player skins and apply them to fit your business.

TubeMogul Plug-in for OSMF

Check out one of our newest Plug-in partners, TubeMogul.   They have just annouced a free video analytics service, which will be a great tool for detailed tracking of the usage of your OSMF based player.  As TubeMogul puts it:

 “TubeMogul InPlay’s analytics are relied on daily by thousands of top publishers and advertisers, from Discovery Networks to Red Bull. These very same analytics are now yours — free. InPlay’s self-serve suite seamlessly integrates into any OSMF player within minutes. Metrics tracked include streams, uniques, time-watched, city-level audience geography, video player embeds, what sites and search terms are referring viewers, completion rates and much more. Performance metrics include bandwidth delivered (and wasted), rebuffer rates by geography and more. All data is easily shared to clients and exported via Excel, data feeds and APIs. TubeMogul InPlay’s metrics can also be compared by any custom dimension, creating endless possibilities to increase publishers’ bottom lines.”
