Release 8.0 14/05/2024

We’re pleased to release the 8.0 version of the Blue Billywig Online Video Platform.


OVP 8 boasts a completely revamped user interface (UI) designed with user-friendliness at its core. Intuitive navigation makes it easy for you to find the features you need, while clear data visualization ensures you have a comprehensive grasp of your video content’s performance.


We’ve made it easy to upload your existing content and repurpose it for short-form videos. Organize your Shorts with playlists for easy management and curate a seamless viewing experience for your audience. Personalize the display using three unique formats and over 20 configurable settings. This extensive range of options allows you to tailor your Shorts experience to perfectly showcase your content and brand identity.
