Here’s the latest new developments from the Field59 team!
Publish to YouTube: Multiple account support
Previously, Field59 accounts could only publish a video to a single YouTube account. We have completely reworked this functionality to now allow for authenticating multiple YouTube accounts under a single Field59 account.
If you manage multiple YouTube channels/brands, you can now publish videos to each from the same single Field59 account. Please see the Publishing Videos to YouTube article in our Knowledge Base to learn more.
Live Streaming: Stream to YouTube Live
With the new Field59 feature, you can now broadcast your live stream simultaneously on multiple platforms including YouTube. This means that your stream can reach a wider audience and potentially receive more views than before. And if you’re looking to boost your YouTube views even further, there are services available that can help you buy 1k views or more for your videos.
Please see our newest Knowledge Base article, How to stream to YouTube Live, for full details on what you need to send to Field59 from your YouTube account to enable this.
New Player features
Visible Start: A new sub-setting of Auto Play. When Visible Start is selected, the Auto Play video will only start when the player is visible in the viewer’s browser window. Please see our Creating Custom Players article to read about our available player configurations.
Analytics: We’ve added a new video_avgviewed metric. This records how long a user watches a video. When looking at the average value of this metric, it provides a snapshot of how long average viewers are watching videos. This metric is available for HTML5 players only. Please see our Using Google Analytics for video metric tracking article to learn more about Field59 video player analytics.
Configurable delete permission
Previously, all users had the ability to delete items from the Field59 manager. Now, superusers can determine whether account users should have the ability to delete items from accounts the user has access to. Please see our article How to create users to learn how superusers can configure this.
