Release 7.111 10/07/2023

We’re pleased to release the 7.111 version of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.

DVR in Live

We extended our Live platform and now include the ability to turn on DVR (Digital Video Recorder). With DVR you can rewind your Live stream up to 3 hours back in time. When DVR is turned on for a Live stream, our player detects this and shows a progress bar that dynamically updates.

New iOS skin

We are launching the new player skin in our iOS SDK. Our player now reflects our buttons and styling on both Android and iOS. This means that the latest version(s) of our native SDK(s) now have a very neat looking player that is in line with our web skin and offers an amazing user experience.
