We decided not to plan out the entirety of 2019 so that we may instead focus better on the first part of the year and short term objectives.
To review the individual planned additions and contribute your use-cases for consideration, please visit the ideas and planning board.
Improving bandwidth infrastructure
To provide faster streaming services we will invest heavily in improving the hosting and CDN services.
Screen-recording & Direct Import to Spotlightr
We will provide a browser extension which will allow you to record your screen and camera and allow you to directly upload the recording to Spotlightr.
Funnels have proven to be complicated to configure, which is why we will aim to simplify and improve the process of creating them, by also redesigning and enhancing the questions and answers, as well as their consequent actions.
For an additional layer of interactivity with your videos we will add interactive hotspots which can be positioned anywhere in the video and trigger actions like show additional content, control the video timeline, etc.
To facilitate better access management to your videos we plan to provide a module which would enable you to dynamically generate access codes which can be set to expire, set to manage access to multiple videos etc.
Here are some noteworthy additions from December:
Main menu redesign
We’ve removed the main toolbar in the Spotlightr application and assigned all it’s functionality to the main sidebar menu thus freeing up more space and getting a better overview.
New download mechanism
Instead of generating a new download file for each request, we’ve updated the download mechanism so that now one file is generated at first, stored in your storage and always served for each new request.
Export Videos List To CSV
You may now export a list of all of your videos, publish ids, share links etc from the dashboard for easier management of your further workflows.
Added option to hide unmute button
For videos which have no audio at all, unmute / autoplay handling is obsolete, so we introduced an option not to show those options at all.
Generating Email Link
We’ve made it easier to generate links for your email campaigns by allowing you to generate linked images directly from the publish menu.
Take a moment to review Spotlightr! We would really love it if you could support us and give us a little bit of your time. This URL still says vooplayer but the listing is updated to our new brand:
