AirPress: Video Blog from your Desktop


AirPress: This post has been sitting in draft for some time, waiting for me to actually produce a video post but time has run away from me. AirPress is an Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) based desktop blogging client that is still in beta but has a few cool features including video blogging right from the desktop with a simple webcam. At first glance I had thought that AirPress lets you post “webcam streaming” to your blog, which would have been tres cool (albeit very hard to manage) but I must have misunderstood the somewhat sparse instructions on the AirPress site. At this time, you can add flash, video, music, pictures etc through AirPress. I would have given them five thumbs up if they would have concentrated on media blogging instead of trying to be another desktop blogging client, but it definitely has potential but it also is buggy. Thanks David

    I’ll confess: I haven’t heard of AIR. But now that I have, I might just pick up AirPress and try it… soon.

    My… vlogging capabilities from a desktop app :D

    … but it definitely has potential but it also is buggy.

    It’s in beta, of course it’ll be buggy :P

    BoltClock: Beta does not necessarily mean buggy but could mean feature incomplete. GMail was is in Beta for a very long time without being buggy but with service disruptions.

    Gmail is still in Beta. But you’re right about it not being buggy.

    AirPress looks pretty interesting and still I’m still searching for that perfect desktop blogging client, I may just need to give it a try.

    @Mark: Eh, right, the Web 2.0 kind of ‘beta’ :D Yeah, that’s more of feature incomplete.

    @teli: Nothing is perfect but I find Windows Live writer to be a good one. I have written a good review which can give any newbie a good start
