New Embed Options

We are happy to share updates to the embedding options in TwentyThree

In the embed function for a single video, you now have more options for customizing the embed code by toggling autoplay and by selecting the preferred method for recommended videos.

With this latest update the embed code will automatically update to match the settings you configure for each single video.

This gives more flexibility when embedding a video using the same video player, as each video can be configured differently depending on the embed destination.

 

Analytics Reports and Filters

A long requested feature in TwentyThree is now available.

In the analytics tool, you can now filter by videos and/or categories combined in a custom selection for videos and save a filter preset for sharing and later review.

Each filter will generate a unique URL you can save and share with other users to quickly get the latest updates on the subset of videos.

Time specific: Select a specific time periode or chose on one the predefined time periods

Embed destinations: Specific a specific embed destination for the subset of videos.

 

 

Social Update: Native Scheduling

We are doing a few updates to scheduling of post to Social Media, which we are really happy to share

Native Scheduling: Videos distributed to Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube will be pushed out to the platforms right away and published at a later time (native post). This means, that you can find the scheduled videos on your Facebook and YouTube account and can make changes if necessary before the video is published.

Twitter does not support post-without-publish and the scheduling will therefore still be handled by TwentyThree.

Edit Social Posts:You can now edit published videos from TwentyThree, changing the title and description for a video on Facebook, Vimeo andYouTube

Twitter does now allow any edits on posts, so this feature is not applicable for the Twitter distribution.

 

Social Update: Vimeo Connection + Subtitles on Social

We are happy to share the latest addition to our social connections: Vimeo. You can now distribute all of your videos from TwentyThree to Vimeo and import videos from Vimeo back to TwentyThree. As with all other connections we also track all your video analytics from Vimeo in TwentyThree.

You can very easily add your Vimeo account to TwentyThree through the Social tab.

Multi language subtitle support on Facebook and YouTube

You can also now distribute videos from TwentyThree with subtitles to Facebook and YouTube. If you have more than one language of subtitles associated with you video, all subtitles will be distributed with the video with the correct language settings!

 

 

New player update: Change regarding preload of videos

In late August 2016 we made an important change on how our latest HTML5 video players behave regarding pre-load of video data in Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 and Edge.

Up until August 2016 we allowed the browsers in question to preload a small chunk of the video content on load. This may be considered a feature, since preloading the first few seconds of a video can make playback faster when actually triggered. However, with our new updated HTML5 players this behaviour is unnecessary and we have assessed that it does not add any significant benefit to the end-viewer. Additionally, the behaviour also affected the way we track plays in our analytics as loads were falsely counted as plays on embedded destinations.

We have therefore decided to no longer allow IE-11 or Edge under any circumstance to preload videos as we need to ensure constant and reliable play analytics from these browsers. For users of TwentyThree, this will mean a small drop in play-count for embedded plays in IE-11 and Edge and a slightly lower level of traffic consumption, as less data is loaded from the player in these browsers.

Please do no hesitate to contact TwentyThree support for any questions in this matter
