Amazon S3 Integration & Video Player Features Announcement
Today I want to announce some new features that are now live in your VOOplayer account!
1) Amazon S3 Integration
Now you can upload videos directly to your Amazon S3 account from within VOOplayer. Just click the link to upload the link to S3, and a popup like this will appear:
Just enter your keys and bucket name. They will be saved there for future uses. On the next video you upload, if you want to change the bucket name or you changed your secret key, just edit it and save it and again it will be saved for the next video!
2) Automatic Splash Screen
We have also incorporated the ability to automatically extract a splash-screen from your .mp4 videos and upload it to your Amazon S3 account to use within VOOplayer. All you need to do is add your .mp4 video into the video URL field, and it will automatically give you the option to select a splash-screen. You just choose the scene of the video, in seconds, of the splash-screen you want to use and click the button “Generate Splash From Video”:
After you do that, you will get the same popup for Amazon S3! Easy as pie
You can also automatically extract a splash-screen from a Youtube video as well. Just enter your Youtube video URL in the video URL field, and then you will see a button to generate the splash screen like this:
Once you click on the button, it will automatically add a random frame for the splash screen:
3) Pop-up Video
You can now display a small thumbnail on your website and when the visitor clicks on the thumbnail, the video will launch as popup/modal window. To use this feature, just use this code on your page:
4) Pause/Play on Scrolling
For this feature, you can now put a video on your page that will PLAY when it’s in the visitors view, and pause when they scroll up/down and the video is no longer in view. You can test this by placing the video low on your page and enable this option:
PRO TIP: If you have a salespage with a demo video or sales video lower on the page, this is extremely valuable!
