'Tipping Point'

3:30 PM -- Today on Contentinople:

  • Akamai CEO Paul Sagan says online video has reached a "tipping point," where users will start to watch video online the same way they have watched it on television. He compared the growth of online video to the growth of pay TV. "As more people subscribed, the content got better. Eventually cable reached a tipping point, and all of a sudden, you had this flowering business model," Sagan says. "We believe the same thing is now happening with Internet video."

  • Adobe has announced widespread support for its new "Strobe" open video player framework -- even though it hasn't been released yet.

  • Online video ad management firm Adap.tv has launched its new Player Partner Program, integrating with some of the top video management platforms.

And in today's News Bits, Facebook has removed two Holocaust-denier groups from the site, after controversy emerged last week.
