New player

13th July 2015

As part of this week’s update, we have added a new player.

This includes many improvements and is now available to all of our business video hosting packages.

It has a nicer interface. The seek bar is now wider and so is easier to click on. Buttons for unavailable features are now not shown, rather than being greyed-out - and these have moved to the main bar to avoid obscuring your content.

We have also removed the tooltips. We felt that the player’s controls were intuitive and so there was simply no need for them. For our international users, this also means there is no complexity dealing with multi-language tooltips too.

You are still able to style the player, should you wish to change its appearance. To demonstrate this, here we have made the ‘floating’ play button blue, and the ‘bottom bar’ the colour ‘cornsilk’:

As before, you are not just limited to that. Perhaps you want to remove the opacity so the controls are no longer translucent? Or perhaps you only want the main play button to show when the video first loads on your page (without the control bar?). All of that is possible - just email us to ask.

If you have any questions about this new video player or our enterpise online video platform in general, please email us at support@vidbeo.com and we’ll do our best to help you.
