Blip TV back as web-video library
May 17, 2011
Blip.tv has re-introduced its video site that curates the best video shows for its users. “The goal of the redesign was to figure a way to help people discover new and original series on our site,” said Dina Kaplan, a co-founder of Blip.tv. “People have no idea where to go and where to find original Web video online — which can be a daunting task — and our redesign definitely solves that problem.”
The new Web site, which is built using HTML5 and CSS, aims to highlight the top five per cent of content on the Blip.tv site. Damien Bruno, the general manager of Blip.tv, said the site hosted over 50,000 videos. To help narrow down interesting content, Blip.tv producers will start picking videos with the best-quality content and then highlighting them on the site.
The new site also offers users a way to dive through content through a series of new portals. These include popular videos, which display the most watched content on the site, and trending videos, which highlights the most viewed video series, week to week, as they grow in popularity.
