New and Enhanced Features in Ooyala IQ
The following new features are included in this release of Ooyala IQ.
- You can now save your selected filters and date ranges into presets.
You can reload your presets, search for your presets, and delete your presets. The saved preset will be available to you the next time you log into your account as long as you don’t change to another browser. Switching browsers to access saved presets will be released at a later date. See Using Preset Filters in the Business Intelligence Page for details on how to create and manage presets.
- You can now retrieve unlimited asset data through the IQ API if the date range for your query is less than one month.
If you have over 10,000 assets and make a query with a date range greater than 31 days, the total_count returned will be 10,000 (instead of your total number of assets, which is greater than 10,000).
See How Can I Query Unlimited Asset Data? for a full example of how this works.
- For an IQ-only users, in the Video Details page, our player is able to load the video's thumbnail image when we have the thumbnail URL ingested into Backlot. When no thumbnail URL is available, a default thumbnail will appear.
- For an IQ-only users, in the Video Details page, our player is able to play remote video assets when the video stream URL is ingested into Backlot.
Ooyala IQ will continue to be updated to support future Ooyala Player versions as they are released.
