Video upload controls
thisisbeptv.com had options for its users to upload videos on the site. However, the client needed a backend control which could allow the videos to be uploaded into the site only after the approval of the site administrator. The technical heads of Apptha understood the requirement and modified the backend controls in such a way the desired requirements were served.
Your Profile’ link placement
Here the challenge faced by Apptha was the change of placement for the ‘Your Profile’ link. In order to help the registered users to easily access their profile, Fatt Kidd wanted the ‘Your Profile’ link to be placed next to the ‘Logout’ link. While the technical brains rewrote the codes to get the functionality routed to the client-preferred position, the design heads made sure the spacing and alignments are proper to ensure a flawless presentation.
The next challenge put forth was the integration of a functionality which enables users to fetch the title description and tags automatically while uploading a video from YouTube. Moreover, the client wanted users to be restricted to add videos URLs only from YouTube and Vimeo. Apptha’s technical team made the appropriate modifications to optimize HD Video Share and incorporated the desired function which was requested by the client.
Direct upload restriction and view counter changes
As a part of changing the business model of thisisbeptv.com, Fatt Kidd was planning to limit video upload options only to paid subscribers. As a result of it, the client wanted his site to prohibit freelance users from directly uploading videos from third party websites. Moreover, the view counter of the videos was also requested to be hidden. Understanding the client’s needs, our programmers made sure that the client was bestowed with controls to restrict video uploads and customized the code in such a way that updates on views were never shown in the frontend.
Ratings and comments
In the age where internet users have started developing trust on the opinions of fellow users, registering user comments has become a basic necessity to earn the trust factor. In other words user opinions act as a scale for measuring the quality of a product. Understanding this undeniable fact, Apptha came up with a rating and commenting system (powered by Facebook) that helped thisisbeptv.com to register its viewers’ opinions.
Social networking sites are the platforms in which millions of users actively share, interact and exchange views and so it is hard for any online business to miss out on tapping the potential of social media. Having realized this fact, Apptha has incorporated social media into HD Video Share in such a way that users can easily share videos with their friends and use their social logins to sign up.
HD Video Share possesses an apt provision which can be used by its buyers to popularize their brand which is the facility to upload their logo on the top of the video player. This helped the ideologists of thisisbeptv.com in publicizing their product and creating brand awareness among users.
Responsiveness and HTML 5 support
The responsive design of this extension helped thisisbeptv.com to dynamically adjust itself to different screen spaces, while the HTML 5 support made sure the video viewing experience on mobile devices is in par with that of the viewing experience on PCs and laptops.
