Release 7.2

We're pleased to release version 7.2 of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.

Several existing features have been improved:

  • In the Ad Units screen, the Download (under the date-picker) now includes an additional tab in the Excel worksheet for all VAST stats.
  • In the Media clip, Playlist and Project details screens the Created, Modified and Published dates now also show the e-mail address of the responsible user.
  • Player URLs can now include a timecode string to define the start time, by adding ?t=### to the end of the URL, where ### can be:
    • The number of seconds: ?t=100
    • Hours, minutes, seconds: ?t=00h01m40s
    • SMPTE timecode: ?t=00:01:40.0
