For Brightcove Users

bclogoIn February of 2016, Brightcove released its newest video player Version 5.  This new Brightcove Player allows publishers to deliver 100% HTML5 to their audience.  Among other benefits, this means that there is complete independence from Flash.  In order to take advantage of this newer, faster technology, Brightcove requires WebVTT format for all new integrations.   Brightcove is also discontinuing support for other file formats and is encouraging clients to move to the WebVTT format before the end of 2017.

Dotsub supports the new Brightcove Player version 5 and provides the required WebVTT format for all new integrations. We will help you convert to the WebVTT format.  In order to convert the existing captions into the new format, you will need to supply Dotsub with the new Brightcove OAuth credentials from the Brightcove account administration panel.  When you are ready contact us via email at [email protected].

On the Dotsub side, we will republish to Brightcove all the links to your old caption and subtitle files in WebVTT format.  How long will it take? It’s usually a matter of a few minutes, but the length of time will depend on many factors such as volume and web traffic. The set-up is completely automated and does not require any human intervention.

If you have any question or concerns, please email [email protected].

Expanded Project Configuration

Our Enterprise clients will be glad to see we have expanded the configurable settings in their Dotsub projects. All these new configuration options expose settings that give you more control over your own projects.  These new configuration options include:

Media Ingest: Configure the download settings to get videos from your OVP into Dotsub.

Media Push: Configure how Dotsub uploads subtitles back to your OVP.

Standing Orders: Configure what your organization orders by default when a new video is ingested into Dotsub.

Default Subtitle Specifications: Configure the settings that define what type of subtitles your organization needs.

Project Defaults: Configure your project’s basic permissions, managers, language and license.

We have also updated our Enterprise Documentation, adding examples on configuring Dotsub for two popular OVPs (Brightcove and Kaltura). If you have any questions about these new configuration options please let us know!

Support for Brightcove’s CMS API and New Video Player

Our friends over at Brightcove have been hard at work over the last few months. They have added a new CMS API and new video player. We are happy to announce we now support both of these new features.

Video ingest and subtitle push can already be configured from your project dashboard. You’ll just need your new OAuth tokens from your account. You can find our setup guide here. We also have a nice sample of our subtitles in the new Brightcove player.

Autoplaying Brightcove Captions and Subtitles

We recently had a customer ask us how to have captions autoplay in their Brightcove player without any changes to their pages.  It turns out this is not currently possible. Since this is such an important and simple use-case, we decided to not only solve it for our client, but also to release the code on github for anyone to use.

If you are familiar with Brightcove you’ll know that there are two parts to any plugin. Flash and Javascript versions of a plugin need to be created.

First lets look at the Flash component. Brightcove provides the ‘CustomModule’ interface as a starting point for your plugin. All we have to do is override initialize() and set captions enabled to ‘true’.

package {

import com.brightcove.api.APIModules;
import com.brightcove.api.CustomModule;
import com.brightcove.api.modules.CaptionsModule;

/**
 * A Brightcove plugin that auto loads captions.
 */
public class CaptionConfigurationModule extends CustomModule {

    override protected function initialize():void {
        var captionModule:CaptionsModule = player.getModule(APIModules.CAPTIONS) as CaptionsModule;
        captionModule.setCaptionsEnabled(true);
    }
}
}

The Javascript plugin is just as simple. Once the player is ready we set captions enabled to ‘true’.

(function() {
    function onPlayerReady() {
        var captionsModule = player.getModule(brightcove.api.modules.APIModules.CAPTIONS);
        captionsModule.setCaptionsEnabled(true);
    }

    var experience = player.getModule(brightcove.api.modules.APIModules.EXPERIENCE);
    if (experience.getReady()) {
        onPlayerReady();
    } else {
        experience.addEventListener(brightcove.player.events.ExperienceEvent.TEMPLATE_READY, onPlayerReady);
    }
}());

There you have it; two simple plugins to enable caption autoplay on your Brightcove player. You can also see these plugins in our GitHub account: https://github.com/dotsub/api-samples/tree/master/brightcove-autoplay-captionsраскрутка сайта в киевевзлом пароля в одноклассниках по логину

New Feature: iOS Subtitles for Brightcove users

Another exciting addition to our platform for all our Brightcove enterprise users.  We now can provide subtitles for iPhone/iPad via a new plug-in. Documentation for this can be found here.

New Push Integration

Dotsub is always looking to expand the number of ways we integrate with the multitude of online video platforms available in the marketplace. We already offer player plugins for several of the major platforms. Now we also have added the ability to have Dotsub automatically upload your caption and translation files into supported online video providers.

We currently support this feature with Brightcove, Kaltura, Limelight, Ooyala, Wistia and YouTube.

Dotsub Sponsors Brightcove PLAY Conference – Worldwide!

Dotsub’s long-time tech partnership with the online video platform Brightcove reaches a new level with our sponsorship of their PLAY 2014 Customer Conference World Tour, starting May 8th in New York City, and continuing on to London, Tokyo and Sydney.

Dotsub first integrated with Brightcove’s video hosting platform and players more than five years ago.  Now, with scores of mutual global customers, seamless integration between the two platforms means adding captions and translated subtitles to your videos in Brightcove doesn’t change your workflow at all.

Brightcove users simply tag videos for language services. and Dotsub automatically ingests a low-resolution proxy copy of the video into our secure system.  Video captioning suitable for the hearing-impaired, as well as translations into any language, are done in a few days.  Approved  subtitles can then be automatically sent to your video players, transferred to any platform, or exported in many formats.

But back to the PLAY World Tour!  Brightcove’s four one-day events, focused on digital media innovation and marketing best practices, will gather customers, partners, and industry leaders who are transforming the video across every screen.

Dotsub folks will be available at each event on all four continents, so let’s meet to continue our international media revolution together…

The New York opening keynote will be live streamed at 9 am EDT, so watch it and many other videos via the Brightcove PLAY web siteподдержка сайта на joomlaпродвижение в соц сетях товаровскачать garena plus 2014
