Userplane To Release Media Player

Santa Monica-based Userplane said this morning that it will release a new media playing widget for its customers, which will support video uploading, publishing, and hosting. The firm, which is a subsidiary of AOL, did not give a new release date its new Userplane Mediaplayer software, which was previously targeted for release in June. The firm said that the player is targeted at filling a void left by the exit of VideoEgg from the video hosting market. Userplane said its new software will provide free video upload and playback capability, chat, and other features.
