Happy Friday! Another week comes to a close, and this one comes right after a long weekend for our Canadian friends and right before a long weekend for our American friends. Here’s what happened on Vidhub in the two weeks, ending May 26th, 2017:
- Google Drive Integration: Hot on the heels of our Box.com integration comes Google Drive! As with before, head over to the ‘Cloud’ Tab on the Uploads Modal, and you can authenticate your Google account to import videos from Google Drive. We understand many organizations have a lot of important files and documents (and not just videos!) on Google Drive, and as such, this integration only has access to pick video files (and only lets us get the exact files you allow, and nothing else!) Similar to Box.com and Dropbox, videos from this integration are uploaded directly to our platform from the service provider, so you’ll get to enjoy the speed and reliability of our player, and have the peace of mind that your original file is safe and sound where it was before.
- Improved Project Permissions: There are now three different permission levels when inviting users to a project.
- Reviewer: This is the current default; Invited users can view and comment on all videos within the project. This is suitable for most clients.
- Uploader: This allows users to view and comment on all videos, but also gives them the ability to upload/add videos to review on Vidhub. Uploaders also can manage their own videos.
- Manager: This level allows users to view, comment, and manage all videos within a project. This also allows you to upload videos. As the name implies, this permission level gives you a lot of power within a project, and is suitable for external project managers or editors. As always, anyone who needs access to more can be invited on as a Team Member within your Organization on Vidhub.
- Improved White Label: Your custom logo and branding is now shown on the login page. This is part of our ongoing process to improve customization and white-labeling on Vidhub.
- Some users were unable to reset their password due to a strange bug, which was fixed shortly after. Thankfully no one was stranded for too long.
- Users on Internet Explorer 11 may have seen the wrong hint on the Video Hint Bar, but we told IE to take a hint and now that’s all straightened out.
- As always, lots of improvements under the hood to improve speed and reliability. Can you ever have too much speed or reliability?
Is there anything you’d like to see added to make Vidhub your ultimate video review and discussion tool? Let us know in the comments below, or by emailing us at [email protected]! Have a great weekend.
