Release 7.83 30/05/2022

We’re pleased to release the 7.83 version of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.

React improvements

  • Login to OVP from within React page

  • Screenshot when commenting

We made two improvements to the React pages created by our OVP. Firstly, we added the option to login to the OVP from within a React page. This will make it easier for users to navigate our platform.

Secondly, we added a feature that automatically takes a screenshot when React users are commenting. This helps visualise what commenters saw on their screen while placing comments and helps processing feedback given.

Select element in studio

Our studio now supports drop-down menu items called select elements. This helps when you want viewers to select an item from a limited list of options.

  • Added filter options to the projects screen.

  • Made the BBRender API easier to use for developers.

  • Removed the automatic creation of sales users in all publications.

  • Improved error displays in the subtitle editor.

  • Searches containing spaces show better results.

  • Removed “Show close button” in the studio to improve usability

  • Fixed an issue where chromecast would not display in mobile apps.

  • Fixed an issue where cloned media clips didn’t contain subtitles.

  • Fixed the ability to create duplicate upload AWS S3 credentials.

  • Fixed an issue where fullscreening the playout example video would break the video player.

  • Fixed an issue with the background and font colours resetting upon changing the colour theme in Channels

  • Fixed an issue where the selected background colour wasn’t showing for empty Channels.

  • Fixed an issue where the floating player would be shown behind Channel elements.

  • Fixed check marks appearing outside of their border.

  • Fixed a specific situation where the source file could not be downloaded.

  • Fixed an issue where deleting custom code in the Studio was quite cumbersome.
