Here you go guys and gals! Joost finally lifted the cover on it’s new web browser offering.  I reported on the new web solution two weeks ago and presented a short screencast about it… but now you can try it all for yourself.

At this point in time Joost is still requiring the download and installation of a client side plug-in to playback content… but guess what? They will soon offer (within a month I am told) a pure Flash based version so that anyone with Flash can view the “Standard” programming.

What does this mean?  If you want to watch the current selection of content you will only need the Flash version.  To watch the new HD Joost content and Live Broadcast you will need the plug-in.

So most users will more than likelly be fine with Flash!  Finally Joost will be available to the Linux community.
