A small set of developers including Flixster, Fanhattan and Instant Watcher will continue to have access to the Netflix API.
Back in May we reported on a deal struck between Sony and Google to integrate the YouTube API into the PlayStation 3, allowing game developers to let players record videos during gameplay and upload them directly to YouTube.
TranscribeMe and MindSwarms, two San Francisco based technology start-ups, have announced that the companies have formed a partnership to provide consumer insights through speech processing of video content and to provide searchable and shareable video consumer feedback.
