Our Myspace widget was pretty clunky and old, and we’ve finally gotten around to building a new one.
It’s a new-fangled “Open Social” widget — way better than our old flash widget, with more powerful ways to fully customize the look and feel of the widget.
The widget itself is a simple video wall, that makes it easy for your Myspace friends to browse through and watch your Vodpod video collection:
The real power of the new widget is that it has many more powerful customization features:
You can “skin” your widget by styling the CSS, and adding custom headers and footers. Or, if you want to do something simpler, you can pick custom background and text colors for your widget (by default, we leave it transparent so it will have the same look as your page).
You can also set what videos you want to show in the widget. Not only which video collection you want to use (if you have more than one), but the set of videos from that collection — by tag, or sorted by recency and other filters.
Get the widget here, give it a try, and let us know what you think.
