SAN JOSE, CA – March 19, 2010 – Liveclicker, Inc.

Costco Wholesale, Bed Bath & Beyond, eBags, OnlineShoes.com, Crate & Barrel, and drugstore.com are among the sites that will deploy Liveclicker’sHTML5 video technology without making any changes to existing site infrastructure or writing new custom code.
