The main focus on our July efforts has been on optimizing performance, stability and ensuring that everything works flawlessly. We took some time away from developing new features or enhancing old ones (although there was still some of that going on), to yield much better performance results and optimized viewing experiences.

As the primary effort in optimizing performance we have implemented conversion of uploaded files to multiple resolutions, namely 1080p, 720p as well as 360p and are serving the best version in comparison to the connection speed of your viewer.
This has had and will continue to have a tremendous positive impact on reducing bandwidth consumption and reducing load times for your videos. We are continuing to fine-tune the benchmark speeds as well as considering supporting additional, both higher and lower, resolutions.
Sub-account licensing and Spotlightr reselling under your own domain has been awaiting long enough. Finally, we are rolling out the ability to purchase and sell Spotlightr licenses which will be managed under your brand. This option will be enabled on Monday July 31st.
We know that a lot of you have been waiting eagerly to take advantage of this module and that’s why we’ve dedicated so much time into optimizing it’s processes. Please take into consideration that what we are realeasing should be considered a BETA stage of Whitelabel accounts as we are looking for your feedback into optimizing it even further. Currently, one sub account license can be obtained as a $10 monthly subscription, which will be a locked in rate for those who purchase licenses in this period.
Segment third-party integrations
As an additional convenience to leveraging third-party integrations with Spotlightr we have added the ability to connect integrations directly from your audience segments. This will allow you to easily create a segment based on video groups, funnel answers and many other filters and then every time a new lead comes in, leverage a third-party integration.
Coming in August… Zapier integration and better embedding
One of the decisions made a month ago was to look to first provide Spotlightr integration with Zapier, which will suit the needs of many customers, while we work on other native integrations. The draft has been completed and is going through final refinements. It’s expected to become public by the end of August.
We are also looking at different ways in which we optimize how videos and video popups are embedded to achieve faster loading and a better overall appearance.
