  • Recovered WordPressTV Twitter account (Props Michael Pick) and hooked it up to our site. All videos published now will also be shared automatically with our Twitter account. 🙂
  • First new tweet:
  • Trac ticket to add Twitter player cards, may not work with the Flash player in VideoPress 1.0 –
  • Upcoming post on adding hashtags to custom tweets before publishing.
  • Early feedback from our first trials of Amazon Elastic Transcoder. Was able to transcode a 2GB RAW video file into a tidy ~600MB mp4. Hoping to roll out faster/easier downloads to reduce the barrier to contributions to post-processing.
