Brightcove allows us many advantages to online video. Among those advantages are the video players that are just a click away to create.
So during this afternoon’s weather coverage, I wrote a 4 minute video report. Then we chopped it up to post in a special player. Users can watch the videos in succession or click in an on demand manner.
Everyone wants to know if their work, school or church will be open during severe weather, especially winter weather. So we have a weather-related closings page. It’s among the most popular pages we have on NewsOK.com.
UPDATE: This video was among the top-viewed videos for December on NewsOK.
With the winter weather (the phrasing caused a fuss in the newsroom last year) today, I came into the office for a quick video update. We recorded three quick videos, one with an overall update of the storm, one on our weather related closings and another on local events.
