Brightcove Videos in Second Life

Written by Bob de Wit. Posted in Brightcove, Developer Blog, Flash

The new Second Life Viewer 2 Beta finally allows integrating Flash-based apps onto Second Life prims (SL lingo for 3D primitives, such as cubes, etc) as textures through a feature called Media Sharing (nothing to do with Brightcove Enterprise Edition Media Sharing). The nice thing about this is that every visitor will be able to stream individual videos, as opposed to the version 1 viewer that could only set a QuickTime Progressive Download url for all residents in a Second Life location. Here’s a sample prim textured with a player and  some navigation prims that would make sense in a 3D environment.
