Its Shockwave Flash 8 based, rather than WMV or other video (CNBC.com should have ran with this technology instead of whatever madness they have been using).
This is the near-term future of internet tv — lighter and faster.
The only issue I’ve come across is there’s a small glitch — when you
email this, ask for a URL, or embed the video, the software embeds the
wrong code — this was supposed to be "Parsing the Fed" — and instead
we get a random video.
It works correctly on this video, bit not on the vid I originally requested. Odd.
