US streaming music service Mog has rolled out a beta version of its web player app, which is now coded in HTML5 rather than Flash. The new player also boots out some features including ratings and the ability to see other users’ profiles, in favour of an emphasis on recommendations and playlists. Equally importantly, Facebook integration is now high in the mix, with Mog recommending artists based on the ones users have Liked on Facebook, as well as those Liked by their friends. CEO David Hyman says Facebook helped out with the integration, as it prepares for a bigger launch of music services within its social network. You can expect Mog to be part of that, alongside Spotify and other services. Source: TechCrunch

  1. Video takes a while to load, and isn’t quite smooth, flash player results in a smooth playback. . html5 player cannot go full screen.However, this is exciting, as it no longer has the ‘stutter’ on the last second of HD video playback. That right there makes it worth it for me to use the HTML5 player. Awesome work!
