Will Times Reader Include Video?
Q. I have been using the Times Reader for a while now and like it as a great, alternate way to read something that feels more like the paper. Are there any plans to incorporate multimedia (audio or video) into the product?
-- Keith Jenkins
A. Yes, we do plan to offer video and multimedia. Because the files are so large, video will only be available to be played when the reader knows you are online. (It allows you to download articles and photos for reading offline). We hope to have this integrated by January.
Many, many more great questions about multimedia at The New York Times. Open and insightful answers which help us get a handle on at least one media organization's attempts to swim in the online waters.
