Re: Hi everyone, from blogDJ, Dave

Hey Dave-

Great post. I also suffer from self-induldgent need to gab, and very
similarly was exploring flash video for the same purpose.

I've been desperately trying to find a good solution for
videoblogging, and finally found one that works for me. Luckily, I
work for a company that has a lot of flash tools and flash video
tools and was able to adapt our system to suit my needs.

I'm using an in-stream adserver to manage and deliver my video. The
Eyeblaster VideoClip Module was designed to serve TV style ads into
user requested content, like when you click to play a movie trailer
or a behind the scenes of some hollywood premere that you'd find on
entertainment tonight's website or the like.

after much fiddling, I finally got it to work. so no i'm getting
down to business. vblogging.
