How does the external videos feature work?

Hello everything is fine? In this article, we will explain how to use the external videos feature. But before that, we need to explain some basic factors about using this resource, after all, the videos that will be shown will not be hosted on our platform, they will only be made available through our player.

What is the external videos feature?

This resource works as follows, as mentioned before, it is the possibility of delivering your videos from different sources using our player and some of its resources. It is therefore important to clarify that as the videos are not delivered by our hosting, we are not fully responsible for the delivery of these contents, only with the player's functionality and its controls.

In addition, as the videos are not in our database, as users watch, bandwidth will not be consumed. However, in order to measure the consumption of this functionality, we count the plays triggered by users as a billing metric. That is, for each plan a specific amount of possible plays will be made available. As:

Bronze: 100k plays
Silver: 250k plays
Gold: 500k plays
Trial: 5k plays

IMPORTANT: It is very important to make it clear that the delivery of the videos is not associated with us, that is, in case of crashes, crashes or various problems related to the delivery of the content, you must contact the company or platform that is making the delivery. hosting this material for you.

How to use?

To use this feature it is very easy just go to add a new link, in the pop-up that will open just click on Link:

After selecting the platform and inserting the requested information in the modal, you will go to the external link page:

After all this process, feel free to embed your videos in the pages that are available, insert embed codes and that's it.
