Yawn… another day, another media player. Yes and no. Songbird is a web player, integrating a media player with all the goodness of Mozilla browser technology. Songbird has an entirely new and unique set of features and APIs that support the burdgeoning movement to free up media on the Web, eliminating those annoying vertical media silos and allowing users to have more interactive and rich media experiences with the Web.
This session will explore Songbird, its APIs, and existing cool media web mashups that break out beyond the traditional media player fold. We’ll show how simple it is to start developing a web site to utilize Songbird’s API to dynamically interact with a user’s media library.
Developer Advocate at Songbird building out a rockin’ open source community. Also currently serving as a board member on the OpenSolaris Governing Board.
