New .Net, Ruby, Java, and Context-Aware Contributions to Open Source @ Brightcove

After launching just a little over a month ago, the Open Source @ Brightcove community has already contributed four new projects to the catalog! We're really excited because this set includes contributions from the Brightcove customers: Agora Games and Velir. We're excited to highlight the great work our customers have done to customize on our robust platform, and we hope that by sharing, other members of the community will benefit and share their work as well!

Agora Games added their Brightcove Ruby SDK to the Open Source @ Brightcove repository shortly after launch. This SDK also includes full Media API coverage and can be added to any project for a quick and easy Brightcove integration. Agora Games is a Brightcove partner that builds and supports online gaming communities.

Context-Aware Related Videos

Open Source @ Brightcove released a small JavaScript plug-in that parses the page where it resides, returning videos related to the content it finds. You can use this plug-in to surface more meaningful videos to your visitors with limited effort.
