BBC allows video to be embedded
1 October 2009
The BBC has started letting their video be embedded on other sites. The first few videos are available on the technology section of the BBC News website.
They include a video on Internet football fans and a report from the Bafta Video Game Awards.
As Andy Dickinson comments on an embedded BBC video on his blog, “How cool is that?”
The BBC said there were “a huge number of tricky little issues to sort out and most of these have been complex business issues around rights, terms and conditions, etc.”.
The move is part of the BBC’s strategy to make its content more open to the public.
