Some magazine publishers started producing video more than 10 years ago, creating DVDs to attach to the front of magazines. Now many are producing hundreds of online videos a year.

Audiences are watching the films on the publishers’ own sites, on YouTube, and within apps; viewing on desktop computers, tablets, mobile phones and connected TVs.

In this podcast we hear from:

  • Pete Wootton, managing director of Dennis Interactive, the digital division of Dennis Publishing
  • Grant Bremner, head of Future TV at Future (which has titles including T3, TechRadar and Future Music)  
  • Kevin Perry, assistant editor of NME.com (owned by IPC Media), who also manages the music title’s video content

This week’s jpod looks at how Al Jazeera English programme The Stream, the new ITV News website and NME.com are embracing social media contributions.

Journalism.co.uk hears examples of how the social media community can set the news agenda, participate in the story, and how news organisations are using the passion and enthusiasm of the audience to shape output.

There are also examples of how a reader comment can turn into a headline and how the outlets are harnessing live activity streams.

Journalism.co.uk technology correspondent Sarah Marshall speaks to:

  • Malika Bilal, digital producer and co-host of The Stream
  • Jason Mills, editor of web development at ITV News
  • Luke Lewis, editor of NME.com

Tool of the week for journalists: Thinglink, for interactive images

Tool of the week: Thinglink

What is it? A tool to allow you to add rich media, such as YouTube videos, SoundCloud recordings and Wikipedia entries to photographs.

How is it of use to journalists? Take a look this poster on NME.com and you will see a fantastic example of how a photo can be annotated with rich media.

Thinglink currently allows you to link to: video (YouTube, Vimeo, Ted); music and audio (Spotify, SoundCloud and iTunes); photos (Flickr, Instagram, Imgur); live music artists (Thrillcall); social media (Facebook pages, Twitter); plus Wikipedia, any event on the Eventbrite, products on Etsy, and almost anything sold on Amazon. You can also embed images.

(The below image is a screengrab and not interactive. Follow the link to see how the photo displays video, audio and more.)

Here is a quick test I did using a Telegraph logo, adding a tweet, a link to the newspaper’s Facebook page and the Wikipedia entry for the title.

The base service is free, however upgrading to a Plus or Pro plan gives you improved statistics, more uploaded images, and the ability to turn your Thinglinked images into Facebook tabs.

This tool was recommended by Luke Lewis, editor of NME.com. To recommend a journalism tool email me using this link.

16:52 Friday 27 April 2012: Updated to correct our assertion that a paid upgrade is required to embed pictures.
