Free film and video clip network hits the Play button

Former Netscape bosses Mike Homer and Marc Andreessen have set up a free film and video clip internet distribution network.

Former Netscape bosses Mike Homer and Marc Andreessen have set up a free film and video clip internet distribution network.

The Open Media Network has been set up for independent film makers, public service broadcasters and consumers who want their work to be seen by a wider audience.

Content distribution company Kontiki, owned by Homer, is supplying the grid network technology that Open Media Network is using to support high-capacity streaming and uploads and downloads.

Paid-for content will also eventually be supported, with providers giving the network a cut to support the system.

Despite Netscape’s battle with Microsoft over the browser market, the only browser that can initially be used for the service is Internet Explorer on Windows. Apple Macintosh and open-source Firefox browser versions are to follow. Firefox is based on Netscape technology.
