youtube syndication

Brid’s YouTube syndication provides our Premium plan partners an option to easily export any video they add into Brid automatically to their YouTube account and channel.  Once you have activated this feature you can easily syndicate your video content to your YouTube channel in Brid by using your Google YouTube login account. We use the OAuth 2.0 protocol to authorize Brid users to publish videos to YouTube. Brid’s YouTube syndication is “one-way” – that means your settings and content in Brid are pushed to YouTube, but the same rule doesn’t apply for Youtube, settings and content on YouTube are not dragged into Brid.

Introducing Brid.tv

After over one year devotion and hard work, we are excited to introduce Brid video; our HTML5 Video Player and CMS platform. Our goal is simple. We give you a chance to get your videos published and monetized with just a few clicks. We offer HTML5 support and that means your videos and your player will be seen and heard on any device, anywhere.

Among some of our many services we provide publishers and advertisers a chance to work their way around ad blocking and ad block technologies. This is accomplished with ADIQ, which quite simply unblocks VAST & VPAID video ad revenue. That way a video will be seen on any desktop or mobile device.
