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.
Browser-based video streaming is available for all accounts and at no additional cost.
Secure web streaming is currently supported in Chrome and Firefox browsers on Mac or Windows.
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.
Just like the app based viewing, browser-based streaming employs DRM to keep your content secure and prevent sharing.
