Software Feature Releases

Ooyala IQ Analytics

The replays metric is available for Ooyala IQ, and is displayed in the UI.

See also the replays metric in the context of the Reporting API.

IQ introduces a new feature whereby the user can filter contents by live streaming or video-on-demand (VOD) content. The feature is part of the UI, located at the top of the key performance indicator (KPI) bar:

When the user selects the filtering, the following will be updated to reflect the live streaming contents:
  • KPI bar
  • Concurrent user
  • Top contents panel
However, the following panels are not supported by the Live/VOD filter yet.
  • Popular now
  • Top 10 Countries By Current Users
  • Trending past hour
Live filtering for these panels will be supported at a future release.

On the Business Intelligence page, the live filter will work for all metrics:

Note: When "filter by label" is applied, Live/VOD filtering will be disabled. If you filter by asset type, you cannot filter by asset name. They are mutually exclusive.

Introducing the Ooyala Player Series

The Ooyala Player Series provides instructional videos for the Ooyala Player. Check out our first video, Ooyala Player Architecture, which talks about core Player features, plugins, and what role they have in the player experience. Future videos will address such topics as how to embed the player, how to interact with the Player API, and more.
