CNN.com live video returns, now free

CNN.com has launched its live streams to the site as it officially ends its Pipeline program. The new live video player echoes Pipeline – you have choices of streams to watch. The player has a black background and links to a few stories. I hit my share of snags and delays using it this morning, but the experience generally worked. There remains the odd obsession CNN has with stretching its video to 16:9 widescreen even when the video was shot in 4:3.
