Live: People, Realtime Viewers, Collectors, and Webinars

We have just released People, Realtime Viewers, and Collectors as individual features, and now they are also enabled when creating Live events og Webinars. This means that you no longer use the old sign-up formula – instead you add a collector to your event. You can see all the sign-ups from the collector and viewers of the specific live event under People, and who is watching your live stream “right now” under Realtime Viewers.

When creating a new Live Event you are now asked to choose between an event or a webinar. We have enabled the possibility to create two different types and layouts of your live events; a standard live page with all the attributes you are used to, and a template for a webinar which is all about the interaction between speakers and participants. A webinar template has a bigger player, fixed sharing buttons, and allow the chat window more space. You can design both types of templates using the Site Designer in Power Mode.

… a powerful tool for lead generation.

As a digital marketer you want to track the behaviour of your viewers/visitors in order to move them in your sales funnel, as well as reach them with intelligent remarketing.
You can now use the Collector to ask for information to show a video. By this you collect valuable information about your viewers and thereby turn your viewers into real people. And by collecting information about your viewers you can convert them into leads in your sales funnel.

You can apply the Collector to specific videos or to entire categories, and either choose to use the Collector as a wall before the video starts, as an interrupter in the video, or in the end of a video.
Customise the form of the Collector easily by activating or deactivating the various fields, and filling out the text fields.
Get an overview of how your Collectors perform with the performance metrics: Reach, Conversions, Conversion Rate, and when the last signup was registered.

Under Realtime Viewers (Power Mode) you can see who watch your videos “right now”, and you can see all your unique viewers under People. Your viewers can either be identified as real people if they fill out a collector of yours, or by data from another tool in your marketing stack, which you have connected to your video marketing platform.

Realtime Viewers

In Power Mode you can see your Realtime Viewers:

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 21.06.11

This is a list of the viewers who are watching videos on your site right now. All viewers get a unique Viewer ID (Eg. Viewer #53621), and we provide you with details about when, from which location, and – source the viewer is watching the video.
The green heatmaps show you how much of the video a viewer has seen – the darker green the more times the clip has been seen by the viewer.

You can also see your realtime viewers of a specific live event. Go to the event in your backend and click on Realtime Viewers:



Under the People tab you get an overview of all your unique viewers; how many videos they have seen, when they was last seen, number of visits, minutes of engagement, engagement score, and what source they come from. All unique viewers can potentially become high quality leads identified by a collector or through a connection to another product in your marketing toolbox.

If a viewer has filled out a Collector with his/her email address or if a viewer match with a lead in a marketing automation tool you have connected, the viewer is identified with all the providable information.

Click on a single viewer to see more specific data. Such as where the viewer was first seen and how he or she has been identified. Under Activity you are able to see what videos the viewer has seen, and the green heatmaps let you know what part of the video has been seen and if it has been seen more than once.

Inbound + Categories

To make your inbound marketing as easy to manage as possible, we have now collected all the inbound tools to manage your site in one place – under the new Inbound tab. Manage the design of your template, your content pages, how your player looks and behaves, and everything else connected to the front-end of your video site. Including Categories!

Channels are now Categories
What you used to know as Channels is now Categories, and you will find Categories under the Inbound tab. Click on “Manage categories” to do all the things you used to do with Channels: Adding new, organizing, ordering videos, using actions, etc.

You can also find Categories with the new and improved Videos tab. Here you can quickly get an overview of all videos and analytics placed in a specific category.
This also means that the Channels tab is gone for good, and we have used this opportunity to also change the order of tabs in the menu bar.

Video section vs. Video & Live Pages
As an admin of your video marketing platform, it is now possible to activate and deactivate the entire Video Section. So. If you deactivate your Video Section, but activate Video & Live Pages, all your videos and live events will still have their own unique landing page which you can use and link to as much as you like. These sites will be without “related videos” and breadcrumbs navigating back to all your videos.

Other updates related to inbound and tabs:

– The Distribute tab is now called Social
– Site Designer and Player Builder (advanced settings) is placed in Power Mode

Power Mode

Introducing Power Mode:
The new place for the most advanced and powerful features of your video marketing platform.

Here, you will find the Batch Editing tool accompanied by Site Designer, Player Builder, API and Labs. Some of the features, you probably know already – and we are moving them as a step towards dividing the basic everyday features and the more advanced ones for the sake of simplicity.

Preview and Labs
Preview mode is where we test and improve new upcoming features ahead of launching them widely to all users. When you activate Preview, you will get early access to upcoming features, and you will also receive message and communication about these features from us.

Labs features are different. These are experimental and may never launch publicly, but we still welcome your ideas.

New Video Player


We are happy to release the new Standard Player today!

A few great things about the new player: Thumbnails create exposure to your video section or website even before people play the video – the new player has simpler and smarter choices with better visual results – and everything from thumbnails to recommendations, sharing and the scrubber has been redesigned.

In short; a simple and elegant player with much improved viewing experience.

OBS! If you do not have admin access to your video marketing platform, you should really give the admin a friendly reminder of this update! :-)

In addition to the above mentioned, here are some bulletpoints of the improvements :

– We now show time stamps in thumbnails…

– … And current time vs. the total time.

– Volume slider.

– Completely new designed share screen.

– Recommendations screen is re-designed.

– “Play next” feature.

– If you work with slides you can now choose between only watching the video, only slides, or side-by-side video and slides.

Import videos from your social channels

​​​From today, you can import all your video content from YouTube and Facebook. This makes it quick and easy to collect all your online video content in one place with all meta data and analytics included. You get the full overview from one single dashboard, where you can bring all videos back to your own website with a click. Having videos on your site is a great way to increase your SEO value. Google places a lot of weight on video content so the more content you have the better you rank. In other words, your website will appear higher up in google search results.

When you have imported your videos you can edit and re-use imported content from one platform by distributing to another one in few minutes – without the hassle of logging in and out on social account, downloading time, and uploading time.

Get started by connecting all your social accounts to your TwentyThree platform and begin the import of perhaps many years of video content – ready for re-use.

For the first time ever, you are able to see and compare how your videos are performing on the web and across social platforms in one single place. Move your mouse over the keymetrics and you will see how your videos perform both in your video section and natively on social platforms. This makes it possible to have an overview of all video content’s analytic data – and to see and compare full break-downs of impressions, plays, performance, and engagement.

In order to get native analytics from your videos you need to connect your social platforms to your TwentyThree account under the Social tab.

You can, now, quickly access and work with the videos you have in your video section, on your social platforms, what videos you have embedded, and your unpublished videos. You can even filter by your channels directly in the overview, and under “Social Videos” you will see what videos have been distributed to which social platforms and pages.

The ’23 Upload’ iPhone application

The newly released ‘23 Upload‘ iPhone application brings a huge advantage — allowing 23 users connect their iPhone to a 23 Video account and upload video content directly from your iPhone to your video website.

Simply download the app, type your domain, choose to upload a video from your camera roll or record a video directly in the app. While your video is uploading, add meta data for the video, such as title and description. You can even use the application as a marketing tool for collecting video content directly to your very own video archive — without requiring logins and registration.


Below you’ll find a link to the application in App Store:


Supplemented variables with Video Fields

In some cases you will want to store specific meta data with your content other than just a title, a description and tags. Video Fields lets you add in extra variables such as sub headers, a notation of the video’s language or an internal log for changes to the content.

Each variable can be set up as public, available on your 23 Video site and through the API − or it can be private and only visible after logging in to the back end.

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 16.20.51

It’s worth mentioning that we’ve moved some features around in the backend: The configuration from video fields and custom actions have been moved from the Design section to Settings. Feel free to reach out if get confused or simply just to give some feedback:

E-mail design from the 23 Video backend

We are continuing rolling out updates to designing e-mails going out from 23 Video, and next one up is the “Open upload done”-email. You now have the option of customizing the e-mail that is sent after an open upload process is completed.

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 15.40.10

Just like any other part of your 23 Video site, you can now use css and liquid to modify the design. And, you can always check what the emails currently look like by clicking « show preview mail». Find the email template available for styling under Design -> Page Templates -> E-mails.

Updated ‘Video Maps’ block

As we keep on building more themes we make sure all layout blocks are adapted as well — to supplement the new themes. A recent example is the layout block for maps, Video map, which has been updated to work with the new, responsive themes.

To try it out, simply go to Design -> Site Layout in the 23 Video backend and find the block in the dropdown “Add a new block”. If the site you’re managing is running an old version of this block, simply add the block again and you’ll immediately have the responsive(nice)ness activated.


New Theme: Ruby Tuesday

Ruby Tuesday is a contemporary theme which puts your videos at the forefront. Perfect for showing off your products or your portfolio.

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 14.19.12

To activate Ruby Tuesday on your video website, go to Design -> Pick a Theme in the 23 Video backend. Make sure you have some high quality thumbnails ready for promoted videos, upload a logo, maybe even your font and brand colors — and you’re good to go!

A brand new design tool: Theme options

Theme options is a result of us rolling out many new changes to the design tools of 23 Video. This allows developers to set up options for their themes — options that can be used by end-users to tweak the design.

Theme options can include colors, logos, fonts, and much more. The choices made by users are available to developers in Sass, Liquid, CSS and JavaScript, and when an options changes the entire site design is automatically rebuilt.

To check it out, visit Design -> Theme Options in the 23 Video backend. The options you create will automatically be added as a option card for customization of the current theme.

Custom designs for pages

Back in September we extended options for editing the content on default landing pages. Now, we’ve taken it a step further by providing more options for custom designes on pages, such as ‘log in’-, ‘sign-up’- and ‘forgotten password-pages.

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 14.59.26

This means you are equipped with the tools you need to fully customize the design and function of a page like this. Simply go to Design -> Page Templates in the 23 Video backend, find the page in interest and start changing the page design.

New theme: Start Me Up

The newly released theme Start Me Up is an elegant yet familiar theme that promotes ease of use while pushing user engagement. A great base to start building your video web site and with simple customizations have it fit your brand design.

Try for yourself by visiting Design -> Pick a Theme in the 23 Video backend.

Fill up on dummy content

As you are setting up a 23 Video site for the first time — or even doing a full makeover on an existing account — you can now, very easily, fill the video website up with suitable dummy content.

If you are trying out 23 Video for the first time you’ll have “Content” appear as one of your setup options. For accounts already set up, simply search for the feature in the top-right corner of the 23 Video backend. Type the words “dummy“, “fill” or “content” to get started using this feature.

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 11.37.46

Simply type search-words of your interest. After a moment your site will be filled with thumbnails matching your business, organisation or subject for the video website. These are all ‘creative comments’ images matching your input.

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 11.47.02
Behind the images you’ll find a dummy video — the same video behind every thumbnail. Match this feature with the 23 Video Themes and you’ll be up and running with a suitable video website in the matter of minutes.

Nice, huh?


We’ve added more layout blocks

Floating blocks in the design tool of 23 Video allows you to insert content to the layout grid.
You can add, move, and edit blocks. Each block is designed to add a specific type of content to your site.
Now we have added a few more to the list:


This block collects options for navigation on your site. Options include items such as sitename, logo, search, list of channels and links to static pages.

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 10.39.19
