We’ve been doing some initial tests with Google Chromecast, and we’re happy to say that Live Video with Chromecast is something that the 247 Platform is doing out of the box.
We’ve tested playing back Live videos in Google Chrome, casting that tab our new Google Chomecast, and then full-screening the video. The playback looks good, and it’s working the same way as the webpage version does!
Let us know your experiences and plans for Google Chromecast

There are cases when selling a video on-line is going to hurt ticket sales for the actual event. It’s a common practice for sporting events to limit the TV and digital showing of live games to protect ticket sales, or sometimes you only want people within a set distance of a location to have access to a video.
Over the last year the 247 Platform has grow at an outstanding rate. We’ve more hours of video being served each day, and our features in the API and website have grown as our users have asked to do new and interesting things with the service. One thing that’s struggled to keep up however is our documentation and help site.
Today we’re launching two new things. First, a Wiki containing our API and site documentation and help, so people can quickly look up what they need and we can keep up with the rate of change so developers can use the new things. The other is this blog, which we’ll use to announce new services and changes to the 247 Platform.
The Wiki can be found at http://docs.247platform.com/ . We’re working to get all the new API calls on there, along with the rest of the site documentation.
