Release 7.11

We're pleased to release version 7.11 of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.

The following new feature has been added:

  • Customers using the new Blue Billywig Live Platform can now create and manage livestreams in the OVP.
    • Livestreams can be transcoded (with adaptive quality) by Blue Billywig or externally
    • Restreaming to social channels with RTMP support (Youtube, Twitch, etc) using the highest-quality stream available
    • Live information in the OVP about the ingest process

Several existing features have been improved:

  • Player initializations are now gathered realtime, significantly improving accuracy and eliminating the 60-minute lag that existed previously
  • The Placement options in the Ad Unit > General screen now allows the option to Append To Matching DOM Element, in addition to After Matching DOM Element
  • Google IMA ads can be set Fullscreen so that inline videos won’t revert to inline if they’re being played fullscreen, when an ad is played

An overview of bugs that were fixed:

  • Fixed VPAIDPlayer player events to work as Timeline Messages and JavaScript actions
  • Avoid CORS errors in ad playback
  • Embed tabs are now optimized for small-screen mobile devices
  • Fixed performance issue with the Project Embedcode Generator
