Detailed Description

Update

Easily sell video on Facebook and through mobile apps.

LittleCast is a new, peer-to-peer eCommerce platform for video producers and their audiences. LittleCast gives creators a channel to sell their works directly to consumers within Facebook through their own pages, and apps built for iOS and Android mobile devices.
Instead of aggregating videos on a third party site or hoping for thousands of views on ad-supported platform, LittleCast lets producers become their own points of purchase. LittleCast leverages Facebook’s more than one billion active, networked users to give producers a direct line to their engaged audiences where they spend the most time, online or mobile.

LittleCast is the first platform to make selling video directly to fans a viral function and was built specifically to grow producers’ audiences and revenues. LittleCast’s tight Facebook Canvas app integration includes an in-line media player and provides in-app purchases through native iOS and Android apps, available now in the Google Play and iOS app stores.

Producers simply upload their videos once to LittleCast.com, set the price they want and begin taking payments. LittleCast immediately places a media player into the producer’s Facebook Timeline. Friends and fans can watch a 30 second preview and purchase without ever leaving the social network. As users preview, purchase and share, the content becomes available to others from buyers’ news feeds. Buyers own and stream the content from the web or download it to their mobile devices for viewing on the go.

Standard and HD video upload lengths range from less than a minute up to three hours. LittleCast handles all storage, distribution and multiple channel payment processing including Facebook Payments, Apple In-App-Purchase, credit cards, and PayPal. Delivery to any device is assured through automatic transcoding for each native app. LittleCast also provides a detailed analytics and engagement dashboard so producers can manage distribution, customer engagement and revenues.
