Home Gets Video Streaming
A popular space in Home is the Theatre which houses a number of trailers including the recent addition of the Shoot! series.
Well today, TedTheDog went on the European PlayStation forums to announce that one of the Shoot! movies is now testing a unique feature to the service – Video Streaming.
In the past, when joining a video screen running a video that you have not seen before, you would have to download the whole video before you can watch it.
Welcome to the future as now, with video streaming, watching trailers and adverts in Home will be a lot better experience. See for yourself by going to the the Theatre (EU only) and finding “the dreaming” Shoot! movie and trying it out.
The video streaming also includes other functionality like pause and rewind, as well as an additional zoom mode however user with HD displays may feel the video looks pixelated.
Hopefully the test will be successful and be rolled out across the whole of Home. May be a future feature Sony could add is an option to download the high quality version similar to YouTube.
