Batch uploading of content

None

Uploading content to FlickRocket is quite easy using either the FlickRocket Content Tools or the web based uploader.

But what do you do if you want to upload hundreds or thousands of content items? Well, for that case the uploading process can be automated. How this works and what to consider when doing so is something I want to explain in this post.

Understanding Physical Shipment Options

None

Flickrocket supports a wide variety of different product types which includes also physical products which are shipped to customers. There are a number of different ways to set these up, which are described in the following.

Understanding FlickRocket Content Licenses / DRM

None

Access to DRM (Digital Rights Management) controlled content from a FlickRocket shop is managed by licenses defined by the content owner together with general device policies by FlickRocket.

The goal behind this is to enable different business models (e.g. rental and permanent rights) with comfortable use by customers while preventing illegal use and sharing.

Tax options overview

None

In this blog article I want to explain about the recent enhancements we have done to the tax system and what it means to different geographical regions.

Integration and Branding of the FlickRocket Admin Interface

None

We get frequently asked how the FlickRocket admin interface can be integrated into 3rd party web sites (and possibly branded with the partner’s logo).

The good news is that such an integration and branding is actually a standard feature of FlickRocket and available to all partners and publishers alike.

Batch Encoding of DVDs

None

More often than not, new video content owners starting with FlickRocket have a number of DVDs to encode. In this case it is good to know of the BatchEncode Tool which comes with the FlickRocket Content Tools which is typically overlooked because it does not have a link in the start menu.
