Many things were announced yesterday at a secret RKUK Conference and alot was suprisingly about Selection DVDs and the many plans for them on RKUK Online, as follows;
Embedment : Able to put RKUK videos on your site, now available by copying shortcut on Download button!
All in 1 : RKUK started putting Selection DVDs in video and download in May and have been working hard to apply all Selection DVDs online and are still continuing to put every single one online!
Quicktime : The question was spilt to wheather RKUK will put any of their own videos in Quicktime rather than Windows Media, CEO Ben Hanson replied “we have all intentions to apply Quicktime video onto our sites and seen as Microsoft has stopped shipping Windows Media onto the Mac platform it only seems far that we contribute more into Quicktime than Windows Media, however we don’t intend to completly dispose of it, we will still host Windows Media but as newer content develops you may see higher Quicktime usage on our website. Seen as Apple have no intentions to stop Quicktime on Windows it seems right really”
Direct Downloading : RKUK announced they’d be completly allowing direct download on 9/10 of video on RKUK Online they say when jobs done could be as much as 2000 videos, work has already begun on this!
R-Browser:Mac : Following the events of the RKUK Web Browser, RKUK announced future plans for a browser for Mac OSX as well as Windows, not much mentioned but it will be very simular as Windows version, no plug ins required probably prior to Windows Media obviously, but they did announce speed increases, but they also announced its currently concept!
Podcast Station : RKUK have also announced a podcast station will be made, it will allow anyone by e-mail to update their podcast which will be .mp3/.m4a/.wma based and subscription offers will be available as well!
The Tech Show : Probably the one with the most umff, The Tech Show. Ben announced that The Tech Show will be replacing the Apple Section in the menu bar but the Apple Section will be part of The Tech Show and still updated as par, a youtube channel has already been made and apparently a page has been made and designed but hidden on RKUK Online, although when The Tech Show will start however wasn’t clarified, probably when Ben gets his MacBook as alot of OSX was mentioned!
Video Production : As you know RKUK have a YouTube Channel at rkukentertainment that currently has over 60 videos which are obviously watchable through RKUK Online, many were interested in Dr Conrad Movie news but unfortunatly little was given away other than obvious delays in production of the film or just disappointment with results! Both National Tree Hugging Society films were played but Ben Hunter unfortunatly couldn’t attend the event. A list of new projects were rumoured as well but many were disappointed with lack of Dr Conrad Movie news! :-(
