Release 7.6

We're pleased to release version 7.6 of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.

Several existing features have been improved:

  • New filters have been added to the Smart Playlist and Reports filtersets: "is 360", "Is empty" and "Duration", bringing them in line with the filters in the Media Library
  • Playlists' RSS configuration now includes an "Author" field to improve SEO and podcast feed validation. If the Author field is empty, the contents of the Owner field will be used instead
  • Playouts now support 'always float', under the Behavior tab
  • Playouts now support 9:16 (vertical video) as an Aspect Ratio
  • Playouts now supports maximum-width in combination with Responsive player resizing
  • In Mediaclip Details, under the Languages tab, uploaded audiotracks can now be downloaded.

An overview of bugs that were fixed:

  • Fixed a problem that prevented custom thumbnails from being uploaded to Projects
  • Following a password-reset link while still logged into the OVP now behaves more logically
  • Fixed player setting 'use deeplink for related items'
  • Custom field type textfield and textarea are now the correct type
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the initial stats for a project's initial clip from being displayed
  • Fixed a bug where response form information keys would contain underscore characters instead of whitespace
