Pay a blogger day

Some of the wittiest, most insightful content comes from bloggers broadcasting because they want to, not because of money or fame. For this reason, our friends at Flattr announces Pay a blogger day to inspire and encourage us all to donate something to our own favorite blogger.

And today is the day - remember to show some extra appreciation for your favorite broadcasters today.

Citizen journalism

At Bambuser we're honored to see how our service is used among people reporting from all over the world. Many are risking their lives to capture events live. Using Bambuser is recognized as an efficient way of distributing live video. We believe in a global voice and free speech and we try to help in the way we can to support reporting. Currently we've set up dedicated pages for Egypt at bambuser.com/egypt and for all #occupy videos at bambuser.com/occupy.

Also, Jonas Vig and Måns Adler, co-founders of Bambuser, are in Egypt for the elections - follow their journey and documentation on the blog Watching the watchers.

Recording offline is now available at Bambuser

You can now use Bambuser to capture video offline too. If you don't have a suitable Internet connection available or otherwise don't want to broadcast live, our apps for iOS and Android can now easily be set to record offline. The captured video can be uploaded and published on your account later when you have a suitable connection.

This often requested addition makes it possible to use Bambuser in many situations where broadcasting live is not an option. When the video is uploaded it will show up on your profile next to all other archived broadcasts, and can be shared to the social networks and sites of your choice. To read more, see our help page on how to record offline.
