New Video Player for Yahoo.com

This is Online Video Week at Read/WriteWeb and the folks at Yahoo pinged us about a new inline video player on Yahoo.com. It’s just been rolled out along with a new ‘video’ module, allowing people to watch videos without leaving the page. Users can also see related videos, and email or IM interesting videos to their network of friends.

Yahoo! claims it is the first portal to enable such “an immersive video experience” directly on its home page. The following two screenshots indicate how it works. The first is the homepage with new video module, and the second is what happens if you click ‘play video’ on the Daily Show image:

The new video features are very nicely implemented, although I did have trouble using it in Firefox on a Mac (worked fine on Safari). Yahoo.com is also lucky to have exclusive videos from Daily Show correspondent Rob Riggle as he covers the war from Iraq. Not to be missed 🙂
