A few months ago, SmugMug added video capabilities to its repertoire of sharing features. SmugMug has now followed up with embedding capabilities for a variety of video sizes including HD. Don MacAskill gives the rundown on the new H.264 embedded format here.
I’m a big SmugMug advocate. I’ve been nothing but thrilled with their photo hosting and sharing services. You can read more of my thoughts on an earlier Photography Bay post – 7 Alternatives to Flickr.
While SmugMug “demands video to be awesome”, I ran into a little bit of a lag issue on my aging iMac G5. I have to say though, that the video quality looks great for a flash-based video. How’s the above video working for you (for both streaming and quality)?
If you decide to give SmugMug a try, you can use this code ( 7jCtURK05RxCQ ) in the ‘Referred by’ field on the signup form to save $5 from whatever account you sign up for. (Disclosure: I get a credit as well.)
