streaming video news on demand
Create your own newscast — watching the mainstream media news on my own schedule is what the Web is supposed to enable.
Most of the major networks have (selected) news video online, but 2 stand out above the rest for me. CBS News (MSIE and Firefox browsers friendly) and NBC / MSNBC News (MSIE only). News on demand is one thing, getting to queue them up in a playlist is a way better experience. (CNN wants you to subscribe to their CNN Pipeline, but I don’t know if that has playlists.)
How I watch news videos online is to browse the directory of videos, select the ones I (kinda) want to watch, and then let them roll in the background while I do lunch or surf the web. This is much better than clicking on one video at a time.
Maybe the other networks (CNN, ABC, FOX) will improve their video play to queue up playlists. To contrast, YouTube has playlists that Tubers can compile, but it doesn’t (yet?) have playlists that viewers can select and queue up on the fly.
