Document management, mobile devices, commenting and more

The administrative portal has recently been update to include several new features:

  • Document Management – Now station managers can keep documents required for TV shows in the back-end for quick access
  • HTML5 with JWPlayer 5 – We recently switched to using JW Player5 which supports html5. Your videos can now be played using either flash or HTML5 allowing for full mobile support on Tablets and most smartphones. Fallback to flash is still supported for those who don’t support HTML5 video.
  •  Hidden episodes and categories support – Now you can hide specific categories or episodes if required. Hidden episodes are still accesible (vs. disabled episodes), however, they will not appear in lists or searchs. Useful for paid embeded content.
  • A full featured comment system is now being developed.
