AP tests Online Video Network player

The Associated Press today began testing local content contribution to the Online Video Network (OVN) player. The next phase allows media Web sites to upload locally produced video clips to their Web site's player in order to further customize the content for their audiences.

The system being developed will allow affiliates to control a new "local" tab within the player and populate it with their own video content. The Web-based tool will also allow grouping of video clips into collections within the tab. This Web tool is fully compatible with Internet Explorer on Windows systems, and Firefox on both PCs and Macs.

More than 30 Web sites are currently participating in the beta test, and a networkwide rollout is scheduled for March.

Powered by MSN technology and featuring exclusive AP content produced specifically for the Web, the Online Video Network is uniquely tailored for Web sites and provides high-quality, in-depth reports from the worldwide newsgathering agency.
