The newly created site features information and Web developer resources about multimedia on the Internet, and incorporates the critically acclaimed Justsmil.com, a site internet.com acquired in November of 1998.
Streaming Media World was created to meet the industry's burgeoning demand for Internet multimedia. The site features comprehensive news, tools, tutorials, resource links, and discussion forums dedicated to Web developers and Webmasters who are managing Internet multimedia content.
"Standards are just beginning to be established for how audio and video content is to be delivered on the Internet," said Editor-in-Chief Gus Venditto. "Streaming Media World will guide developers through this standards-setting process and help them find the tools they need to maximize their use of multimedia content."
