We are happy to let you know about the following major enhancements to Flickrocket’s subscription functionality:

  • Subscriptions: Annual payments

    It is now possible to offer subscriptions with annual payments. This option can be combined with an annual or multi-year regular runtime.

  • Subscriptions: Scheduled content (content dripping)

    Content can now be scheduled to become available to subscribers at a certain time after signup. For example, this new feature can be used to offer courses where each month new content is automatically made available.

  • Subscriptions/Access groups: New reports

    The admin interface now features new subscription/subscriber/access groups reports based on often requested filters.

We hope these additions make the Flickrocket subscription system even more attractive. For any additional feature requests, we would love to hear from you.

See below the new Flickrocket feature additions that might be useful for your business:


Event content

If you sell video/content from an event (e.g. an adventure tour, a concert, a wedding, graduation, etc.) you might want to look into our Event Content offering. The Event Content feature allows offering an unlimited amount of content (optionally watermarked) with every plan for a limited time.


Marketplace BETA

With the new Flickrocket Marketplace you can offer your content to other shops and also license content from other shops for selling within your shop. Marketplace is currently in beta and if you are interested in joining, please contact Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!.


Browser based PDF/ePub rendering

Recently uploaded PDFs and ePubs can now be securely displayed in the "My Content" section of Flickrocket based web shops. Requires no separate app install and simply works in any modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari). Some print related features may be limited. Contact your account manager or email us at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein! for more information.


Product attachments

You can now attach various content files such as documents, images, data files, etc. to every digital content product. Imagine training/exercise plans for sports content, supplemental documents accompanying educational content, or study materials for community content. With the new attachment feature this can easily be arranged – at no additional cost.


Mailing lists

Use the new mailing recipients lists to send targeted emails to specific audiences. The email can include uniquely generated discount or unlock codes. For example, you could use it to give a certain group of people access to one or more of your products. Perfect for distributing pre-paid content for a class or seminar.


Linked products discounts

Use linked product discounts to present a special offer for a related product, when the customer places a certain item into the shopping cart.


New payment systems

Flickrocket has added FreedomPay (United States) and SecuPay (European Union) as new payment service providers.


In addition to the above, there are various smaller enhancements and fixes based on shop owners’ and partners’ requests.

Over the last few weeks Flickrocket has rolled the new secure browser-based video streaming including playlist and navigation. Please read below for more details and how you can take advantage of it.

  • Availability

    Browser-based video streaming is available for all accounts and at no additional cost.

  • Security/DRM

    Just like the app based viewing, browser-based streaming employs DRM to keep your content secure and prevent sharing.

  • Compatibility

    Secure web streaming is currently supported in Chrome and Firefox browsers on Mac or Windows.

  • Experience

    With compatible browsers, users can just login to the Web Player and start streaming. No additional software or plug-in installation is required.

  • Linear content

    Streaming is automatically enabled for all linear video content (both SD and HD). No further action is required.

  • Non-linear content

    Non-linear (typically DVD based) content requires creation of a playlist using the admin interface. This involves selecting titles, assigning names, choosing menu images and is done by choosing Edit Titles in the Meta Information section of the product page. After this, enable the "WebPlayer" under Advanced Options and save the product.
