[edit: two main limitations on vumarks found so far: a) source must be accessible anonymously, b) source must be embedable. No other limitations have been found yet, updates will be posted as they come in]
First, a big Thank You to our readers who have posted new information in the comments lately - encouraging and publishing your contributions to the community are exactly the purpose of this blog.
Greatone76 has verified that the latest updated firmware indeed provides support for the NTFS filesystem. NTFS formatted drives should look and act like FAT32 drives by now. If you have no idea what this means then take this simple advice: if you ever connected a harddrive to your VuNow and it didn't work, try it again and your odds are good.
- We take this as confirmation that VuNow 3.0 is officially released -
An anonymous reader has reported that VuMarks.com integration has been enabled and is accessible from the Popular Websites section on the VuNow.
Rob reported via the contact form that Verismo's official response to a request for adding content was:
"We have [.. a] new feature VuMARKS which enables user to add video and channels of their choice. Please login to the site www.vumarks.com. Please create your account there and then you can add channels and videos of your own choice."
Furthermore, Rob received a response to his inquiry regarding CinemaNow and whether this content source will ever arrive, "We will be adding Cinema Now in [the] future". This 'future' time frame was not specified. Also interesting to note, Rob suggested a new video source to be added and their response was mildly positive, "I have forward your channel request to our content team".
And finally, an answer to Adithya's question poised as a glorified exclamation to us all: We should now be able to add our own channels through VuMarks.com and watch them on our TVs!
These features are related to the latest firmware from Verismo Networks - the firmware required ends in .17
I'm looking forward to quite a few interesting channels over at VuMarks.com along with further user reports here indicating which sites worked properly with Vumarks and which ones didn't.
And yes, for those curious about it, you CAN make your VuMarks private as seen in this screenshot:
