Updated 8/6/12: IBroadcast channels can now be used in user profiles, blog posts, or added as a Video using the player-only embedding instructions below.
Updated 5/7/12: You no longer have to manually tweak the embed code to get the full player + chat... IBroadcast now generates both widgets for you automatically. See step 3
My name is Sam Rahimi, CEO of IBroadcast.TV - the video platform introduced to you earlier this week by Patrick Chapelle (see http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/introducing-ibroadcast) - if you haven't read this thread, please do, as it contains instructions for setting up your channel on IBroadcast.
Briefly - IBroadcast lets you easily create and share your broadcast with the world. Create a playlist from anything on YouTube or any live stream on Justin.TV - and turn it into a synchronized broadcast just like ordinary TV (minus the commercials.) This allows your visitors to hang out in the chat room and socialize while experiencing the content together - and if you've got a Ning Network, you can now embed any IBroadcast channel along with the chat and social features in a page on your site.
1. Create an IBroadcast channel by going to http://ibroadcast.tv and signing in with Facebook. If you have YouTube videos shared on your timeline, your broadcast will be created automatically from these. To add more videos (pretty much anything on YouTube), create a customized profile for your channel, and rearrange your playlist, go to "Broadcast Studio" once you're logged in. You can use HTML in the channel profile if you wish to add links back to your Ning network or anywhere else.
2. (optional but recommended) - After customizing your profile, like and share the channel on Facebook using the buttons provided on the channel page...
3. Get the embed code by clicking the "Embed" button underneath the video player. Choose from a video player only (560x315; can be resized) and a full sized player with chat and social discovery features (800x900; fixed size.) Check http://anrdjunion.com/ and http://natewalker.com for examples of the player only; http://anrdjunion.com/page/a-r-dj-union-t-v, http://kingdomzx.biz/page/tv, http://hhiaclan.com/page/hhiatv-by-i-broadcast for the full player + chat.

Is there any way I can setup the embed so that the sound is off by default?
My members are commenting that they would like to switch sound on in stead of off.
