Release 7.8

We're pleased to release version 7.8 of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.

The following new feature has been added:

  • Non-OVP customers can load subtitles by their “src” attribute instead of the normal /subtitle/.srt URL.

Several existing features have been improved:

  • Ad Units can now select 9:16 (vertical video) as an aspect ratio.
  • Viewpages are now explicitly excluded from indexing by search engines so they can’t be indexed even accidentally.

  • Fixed a bug where the VAST type creatives do not show precentiles in the VAST Stats export
