Userplane , the premier communications platform for online communities and a wholly owned subsidiary of AOL, today announced that it will fast-track the release of Userplane Mediaplayer. Userplane's newest white-label application, which supports video uploading, publishing and hosting, as well as ad revenue sharing, will immediately fill the void left by VideoEgg's recent departure from the video hosting arena.
Mediaplayer complements the current Userplane suite of robust communications software applications that includes Webchat 2, Webmessenger 2 and Webrecorder. Publishers will have free and unlimited use of Mediaplayer's video upload and playback capabilities, as well as the opportunity to participate in Userplane's ad revenue sharing program.
"The release of Mediaplayer solidifies Userplane's brand as a complete social networking platform solution," said Michael Jones, CEO of Userplane and senior vice president of AOL. "We look forward to assisting VideoEgg customers in making a seamless and painless transition to Mediaplayer."
Mediaplayer's built-in interactive player will feature video sharing, chat and discovery technology. Users will be able to upload video using the Mediaplayer white-label uploader, and Web site administrators will have the ability to review and confirm content before publishing it. Former VideoEgg clients will be able to transfer their existing videos to Userplane's centrally hosted platform. Current VideoEgg clients can learn more about Mediaplayer and its release schedule by visiting www.userplane.com/mediaplayer.
With more than 200,000 publishers, Userplane is the leading white-label application provider for online communities.
