Working with The FeedRoom, NYTimes.com is providing exclusive viewing of five short films from the 43rd New York Film Festival. Of note, in addition to the traditional broadband 300 kbps, the streams can be viewed at 1,000 kbps in an enlarged window. Like Google’s new video viewer, which I seem to have liked more than some others, TheFeedRoom is using Flash 7. Bart Feder of TheFeedRoom calls the process “a new video application to deliver the shorts at a quality that befits the artistry of the films themselves” while NYT.com’s Len Apcar describes it as “superior quality than anything they’re likely to find on a computer this side of a DVD.”
Let me know how you think this fits in with other online video.
