blinkx, the video search engine, has announced a dedicated blinkx app, as well as an open source blinkx Video Player for the Tizen community. Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform for mobile devices.
The blinkx app, available through the Tizen store, will replicate the look and feel of the recently re-launched blinkx.com, tapping into over 35 million hours of online video and over 800 media partnerships to give mobile viewers access to an incredible array of high-quality videos. Whether searching for a specific clip or browsing categories such as News & Politics, Celebrity and Viral, users on the go will have the same immersive video experience they enjoy on blinkx.com.
“The blinkx Video Player is an outstanding addition to the Tizen ecosystem and community,” said Christopher Croteau, Tizen Association Board member and Managing Director of Intel’s System Software Division. “Developers will be able to access the open source HTML5 code and manufacturers utilizing Tizen will be able to more easily include video in mobile devices.”
