Video Platform News (Pod)


La plateforme vidéo passe en version 3.4.1 [24/10/2023]

This new version of the platform brings its share of fixes and new features:

  • Work on accessibility: 60% of RGAA criteria have been met.
    The platform is therefore considered partially compliant.
    The software's average compliance rate is 71%.
     
  • Modifications to the playlist and favorite video system
     
  • The video platform is now a progressive web application (PWA) that appears to the user as a native or mobile application. You can install it for faster access.
     
  • If you wish, you can receive notifications when your videos have finished encoding.
  • The site has also been optimized, particularly the home page.

  • The main menu, which appears in the top right-hand corner once you've logged in, has been redesigned to include all the functionalities offered by the video platform.


The video platform goes to version 3.3.1 [17/07/2023]

This new version of the platform brings its share of fixes and new features:

  • the possibility of holding Big Blue Button meetings, through the platform, via an intuitive interface.

  • the consultation of the recordings of the Big Blue Button meetings and also the possibility of being able to import them directly into the platform in video.
     
  • importing videos from outside the platform. Thus, with this new feature, you will be able to centralize in the Pod platform all your videos from other applications such as Youtube, PeerTube, other Big Blue Button customers...
     
  • cutting videos. This module allows you to edit a video and to be able to cut the beginning and/or the end of a video at your convenience.
     
  • management of favorites. You can put your videos in favorites.
     
  • the possibility of sorting your videos according to different criteria (Date of addition, title, date of the event, duration).

The video platform goes to version 3.0.5 [06/02/2023]

This new version of the platform brings its share of fixes and new features:

  • a more modern and user-friendly interface.
     
  • the possibility of holding Big Blue Button meetings, through the platform.

  • an efficient automated transcription system.

Available only in English and French, transcription is a voice recognition technology that transforms speech into text automatically.

  • a modification of the video publication system allowing recovery in the event of a network or other problem.

This results in the fact of sending the video before entering other information such as the title, the description... But it remains clear and very intuitive.
