Happy Spring! We’ve spent the last few months on mostly improvements to already existing features but we did squeeze in some new stuff. Some of the new features we important, but subtle. Let’s get into it.
Live streaming was released to everyone on the platform. This was a big release and we’re excited about where it will go. Check out our knowledge base entry for this feature if you haven’t had a chance yet. We look forward to your ideas on improvements and features.
Projects can now be archived which is useful for clearing out old stuff that you still want to keep so your project listing stays clean and easy to navigate.
Comments can now be left on videos which we believe makes your learning content that much more interactive. Viewers can leave comments and you as the instructor and publisher can reply to comments.
We added support for MP3 files, to already supported WAV files, giving you more flexibility on your audio uploads.
Let’s get into the full list of improvements and bug fixes and then get some more details out on some key new features released over the past few months.

Once the stream is finished, it will save right to your account automatically for publishing.
This tab is available on the same page you add your videos, and our knowledge base entry should help you get that set up!
It’s worth mentioning here because there’s some pretty sweet stuff you can do with this integration. We just reworked the integration due to some Hubspot changes. But with this integration you can:
1 – Collect leads from your videos and send them right to Hubspot
2 – Use your lead info to add personalization to your videos. For example, welcome them to the video by each viewer’s name.
3 – Dynamically move them to different Hubspot lists depening on their video viewing. For example, move add leads to a new list if they watched 50% of a particular video. This is great for segmenting your leads to give them more direct marketing messages!
Check our complete Hubspot integration break-down for a more in-depth look at all of this functionality.
More integration work. We’re going to add Drip, MailerLite, and ConvertKit. We also need to do make some changes on our Zapier integration.
More integrations may come as well, stay tuned!
We are also going to be updating all of our overlays templates with new designs. This should be good!
We appreciate you!
