Integration with Friendfeed, and Tumblr

Early on we added notification options for the microblogging services Twitter, Jaiku and Pownce, so that your friends on these platforms get to know when you have something to show them via Bambuser. Many of you have appreciated this and now it's time to throw a few more services into the mix.

In the last few days we added support for Friendfeed, a social network aggregator,, a node in the Laconica open source microblogging initiative and Tumblr, a short-form scrapbook-like blogging service.

On all of these platforms we post one notification for each of your broadcasts. In most cases a text-only post with the title you've set for the broadcast and a link to the video. The Friendfeed API however, allows us to post a preview thumbnail, which we do when possible. Tumblr gives us the freedom to put the video player in the post so that your visitors can watch the broadcast directly on your blog.

If you are using any of these services, try this out via your settings page and let us know what you think!

Bambuser to be tested in public safety

Together with Jonas Landgren and Fredrik Bergstrand from Viktoria Institute, Bambuser will be exploring the usage of mobile live video for public safety.

A new research project on using live video streaming to improve emergency response work. This new project started 1st of September and is a collaboration between Viktoria Institute, the Road Traffic Safety Institute – SAFER, Lindholmen Science Park´s Security Arena, the Swedish Road Authority, the Rescue Services in Gothenburg and the Regional Paramedic Services.

The project seeks to explore how live video data from mobile and stationary cameras could be used in order to provide improved situational awareness and collaboration among the response actors involved in traffic accidents response work.

In this project, Bambuser will provide the live mobile video broadcasting capabilities necessary to provide on-location live video that will be broadcasted across the response actor network. Having Bambuser as a key technology and service provider is fundamental for the practical field experiments that will be conducted with the end-user organizations later this autumn.
