Release 7.84 13/06/2022

We’re pleased to release the 7.84 version of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.

Context section with new filters

In analytics, on the statistics tab, a new section has been added called “Context”. In this section we can filter on Channels, Projects, Playlists, Playouts and Initiators. This allows users to track performances of clips included within specific parts or containers of the OVP. Playlist statistics are tracked starting this deployment.

Responses in React

You are now able to respond to other peoples comments in React. When someone replies to your comment or the comment is marked as solved, you will be notified by email.

Deep linking in channels

Users can now share links to specific videos within a channel by using the deep link player option. This helps in redirecting users to specific videos within a channel.
