Apple-pie Embedding

Something exciting has happened at NZ On Screen. One very useful feature missing from the site since its launch last year has been the ability to embed the video clips it showcases in blogs and other websites. You and I might think it should be done as a matter of course, but rights holders and non-geeks can be, understandably wary about what might look like a rights extension.

Well, that's changed. Where Brenda and her team have been able to secure permission for embedding, it's enabled, via the site's own external player. This makes those works available to both other public sectors websites and, if you like, your wee personal blog.

Here's our first embedded clip from NZ On Screen, the first part of Alister Barry's In A Land of Plenty

There's no ability to embed them in comments here yet, but I'll see what I can do.
