msnbc.com Resizes Video Player for Facebook

msnbc.com is resizing its video player to make it compatible with Facebook, and the Website will introduce a scheme to arrange thumbnail images of in-stream advertisement around the player, president and publisher Charles Tillinghast told Beet.TV executive producer Andy Plesser.

Tillinghast said the ads appear for a short time, and then get moved to a thumbnail gallery around the player, allowing users to find them without having to watch the video again.
