AppleTV – Flash version of the AppleTV interface makes its way to the desktop browser

My that Paul Yanez has been busy. Not content with just replicating the Joost interface in Flash as we reported a while back, he’s now added a bunch of other multimedia interfaces into the pot, including a very cool Flash AppleTV interface which showcases video from all over the Web, including places like Break.com, Heavy and Digg as well as the usual suspects. Of course, the video still suffers from the usual poor quality when expanded full screen, but it’s a great way to demonstrate just how powerful the Flash browser interface is now, and how it could be used for delivering a lot of different stuff. Makes you wonder why people keep re-inventing the wheel really, doesn’t it? Apart from the obvious like copy protection.

 A Flash mashup that has the same functionality as the AppleTV device plus utilizes RSS feeds from the top web sharing sites such as YouTube, Google, MySpace, Digg, BlipTV, MetaCafe, IFilm, Pornotube, DailyMotion, Break, Grouper, Heavy and Guba. Users have the ability to navigate the application via keyboard or remote control. The user has the ability to change the UI in terms of color, layout, control type, viewing and hiding information thru a control panel. Users also have the ability on this screen to add the video to a “favorites” list. Users have the ability to change controllers if they desire.
