blinkx unveils app, video player for Tizen developers
Internet video engine blinkx has unveiled a blinkx application, as well as an open source blinkx Video Player for the Tizen operating system developers. The blinkx application, available through the Tizen store, will replicate the look of the recently re-launched blinkx.com, tapping into over 35 million hours of online video and over 800 media connections to give mobile viewers access to videos. For mobile application creators in the Tizen community, blinkx has developed an open source HTML5 video player to enable developers incorporate a video player into their applications. The code allows developers to build a single- or multi-video player experience with their own videos in multiple formats. As a result, creators of new and existing Tizen applications will be able to incorporate a video player with customisable playlists and configurable settings.
