Lightcast.com Release Notes for February 24th, 2015


Lightcast.com Release Notes for February 24th, 2015

The Lightcast.com Technical Department is happy to announce some great improvements and tools. See what's new below:

Re-order videos feature improvements:
We've extended the re-order videos feature within VOD Channels, to be able to re-order videos faster than before. With the new re-order feature, you will be able to enter your desired position for the video by mousing over the video number on the left, and the video will instantly jump to the position you entered. This makes it much easier to rearrange videos within VOD Channels, especially if you've uploaded quite a lot of videos. The arrows to move videos up and down are still available.
 
FTP Batch Upload Feature improvements:
Clients who ordered the FTP Batch Upload feature will be able to manage their FTP Batch Uploads directly within their Lightcast Control Center once the files were moved to our servers. A simple click on "Complete FTP Upload" and all media files will be sent into transcoding automatically. The total amount of FTP credits left will also be shown within your Control Center as well as the option to buy more FTP credits.
 
iTunes Audio and Video Podcast thumbnails:
If you have an iTunes Video and Audio Podcast with us, you will be able to upload separate thumbnails for both your Video and Audio Podcast. In the past, we used only one thumbnail for both Podcasts, but now you will be able to upload two separate graphics.
 
New "Order By" filter within Media Archives:
With the new "Order By" option you will be able to sort your video or audio files by upload date, title, views and length.
 
Feedback Button:
Within the Lightcast Control Center on the very right side of the page, you will have the possibility to send us your Feedback by clicking the green "Feedback" button. Every Feedback is welcome!
 
Media Stats Center extension:
We included the new Broadcast Outlet "Fire TV" into the Media Stats Center. Every client who ordered an Amazon FireTV App with us, will be able to see their viewership stats under "FireTV".
 
Please find a list of all featured Amazon FireTV Apps under www.lightcast.com/apps/featured-firetv.

There are plenty of other technical improvements we've made over the past weeks to the benefit of our clients and users. Check them out and let us know what you think. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
