Free EQ Bar Extends the Reach of YouTube Videos To Billions of Devices

Bloggers and Website Owners Now Have A Revolutionary Method of Expanding the Viewership of Their YouTube Video Embeds

SAUSALITO, CA – February 18, 2010 – Equilibrium®, a software and hosted services company that specializes in helping enterprise clients of all sizes to manage, monetize and mobilize content, today announced a free service that allows bloggers and website owners to easily add an EQ Bar™ widget to any YouTube™ video embed. By taking an additional step before pasting the YouTube video embed to their blog or website, an EQ Bar is added and enables the embedded video to be delivered to most mobile devices, downloads and web video players. The free EQ Bar for YouTube embeds works with any website publishing system and most blog software. It is available for use now at

Adding the free EQ Bar is easy; with an extra step, a blogger or website owner can add mobile delivery and more to their YouTube embeds. They first find their video on YouTube, choose its embed options, and copy the embed code. Previously they would have gone to their blog or website and pasted the embed code. Instead, they go to, follow the prompts and copy a new embed code. They then paste the new code in their blog or website. Once the blog or website is published, the YouTube video with the specified YouTube player and an EQ Bar are available.

“Simply by adding a free EQ Bar to their YouTube video embeds, a blogger or website owner gives viewers the ability to watch YouTube videos wherever and whenever they choose, without worrying about video formats or video players,” said Sean Barger, founder and CEO of Equilibrium. “This gives content owners what they want – ‘True Video Anywhere’ without the hassle of preparing, storing and managing all the different devices and custom players.”

The free EQ Bar for YouTube embeds works with most major blog software, like WordPress™, Blogger™, TypePad™, and others (but not Posterous™ and tumblr™).
