1) No App For That: You don’t need an app! Just use your Chrome, Firefox or other WebRTC-enabled browser on PC, Mac, Linux or Android (and soon iPhone…)
2) Most Mobile: It works great on Android, which is the mobile platform most of the connected world (China + India) actually uses…
3) Shortest Path to Video: It’s the fastest way to record a video post for your site or blog… just go live, and then seconds later, you have a permalink to a downloadable/embeddedable WebM video you can post anywhere!
4) Open Motion: It uses WebM, one of the only truly free and open video formats: http://www.webmproject.org/
5) Here’s to Peers!: If you have a lot of people on the same network watching a stream, the live stream quality is really great, since it can connect peer-to-peer between viewers.
6) Run Your Own: Like with WordPress, if you really love Rhinobird.tv, but want your own site and video archive, you can run your own server anywhere you want! (aka its open-source and on github!)
7) ¡se habla español! If you are doing anything with web video and live streaming in any Spanish-speaking context, then the RB team speaks your language… and considering the peer-to-peer video support, maybe RB is the perfect platform for Cubans to connect with eachother!
8) Any Name You Choose: I have it on good word that you can livestream on Rhinobird without even using a valid email address… a nice private disposable way to broadcast live without any sort of real name or permanent identifiers…
9) So Much To Come: Rhinobird is about way more than just watching a single livestream… the Channel functionality and VJ’ing (soon to come) are really brilliant innovations whose time will come once the community scales up.
10) Felipe’s Typewriter: Loyalty still counts for something right? Felipe is one of us, and at the beginning of every successful service there is always a core group of influential people who decide to support something. I’ve chose to support RB, and I hope you do too.
