Fast, short-form video streaming in the browser for syndicated content covering internet culture
We worked with the People and Entertainment Weekly teams at Time Inc. to build a streaming platform for short videos covering internet culture. The schedule was tight—just five months to turn an idea into a new brand.Check it out ➔
We created publishing infrastructure for Instant. We built a light content management system for syndicating video content, and a REST API for the web app to consume. Advertising is non-obtrusive and tightly integrated into the experience. Instant enjoyed a successful public launch in 2016 at the nationally recognized video conference VidCon.
We built a blazing-fast video platform that lives entirely on the web. The iPhone's Safari browser restricts video playback to a takeover modal experience, and completely prevents autoplaying video. We built a custom video player that managed to circumvent the default iOS video experience to achieve inline autoplaying video on all mobile browsers.
The site looks great on any browser, and it’s fast everywhere. It boasts refreshingly little user interface—you’re just immersed in video. You can even sit back and watch it play. The video advances without input when a post finishes playback.
