A case study on how HD Video Share was instrumental in creating Thisisbeptv.com

Broken Equipment Productions (BEP) run by a brother duo (Fatt Kidd and Twinn) who hail from Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A wanted to setup an online platform to host their music and comedy creations. They zeroed in on HD Video Share extension developed by Apptha which delivered readymade solutions to all of their requirements.

As technology keeps on evolving the challenges evolve as well. Apptha faced a couple of such challenges after delivering HD Video Share to BEP which were the compatibility of videos on iOS powered devices and browser compatibility of the extension on the latest version of Firefox (19.0.2).

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.

YouTube functionality

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.
