“We’re working through our process and trying to understand how online video is best presented,”
Barry Jossen, Stage 9’s general manager, told me today. “[Squeegees] did initially go onto YouTube and we disabled embedding, but we quickly changed it.”
Jossen went on to say that Squeegees would also be shareable directly through ABC. “ABC.com is a different method; there will be an embeddable widget, if people want to embed the content into their social network,” he said.
ABC is at least catching up with CBS, which has embeddable video via YouTube, and following in the footsteps of NBC, which is expanding its sharing capabilities directly through the network’s site. Hopefully though, the Squeegees widget will be better than the widget ABC put out for Lost, which is just video snippets, commercials from the show and trivia questions.
