Dear publishers, it’s been a few weeks since our last platform update, but more novelties and features are finally here! This week, our team has prepared a few handy features like a custom sticky player, improved GEO targeting for videos, and more.
Let’s see everything that the 5.6.8. update brings to the table:
We’re excited to announce that publishers now have access to our brand-new custom sticky player feature. This feature allows users to set a custom HTML element to make their sticky player stick to it instead of appearing in one of your site’s corners. That way, publishers can maximize their player’s visibility by attaching it to a more prominent element on the website.
Setting up this feature is pretty straightforward, and you can do it in a few simple steps:
Step 1. Navigate to the Players section, and select one of your players (or add a new one).
Step 2. Choose the Make player sticky option, and add your custom HTML element in the Position sticky in element box.
That’s it. It’s as simple as that!
Aside from the custom sticky player, there are a few other notable features that came with the 5.6.8. update.
Publishers can choose to use a page’s featured image as their video’s starting snapshot using the og:image tag. Publishers can access this feature by navigating the following path:
Players -> Select a Player -> Settings -> Options -> Use og:image/featured image as snapshot.
Aside from the above, we’ve introduced some handy improvements to our video GEO targeting system. As of this new update, playlists will no longer play videos to users in whose countries these videos aren’t available.
Here’s a complete list of changes, additions, and bug fixes that came with the 5.6.8. update:
