Introduction
 to 
Cloud Video

Since v3.1, Klynt allows you to work with videos hosted on professional platforms (such as Vimeo Pro, Ooyala and Brightcove). You no longer need to store your videos on your workstation or host them on your server that is not optimized for streaming, but enjoy pro solutions for organizing your videos and distribute them in the best conditions. With this option, you ensure your video encoding as well as  a perfect smooth playback, and from any location in the world.
A new video management space was created in the media library that brings together all types of videos you can call online: Youtube, Vimeo Pro, Ooyala, Brightcove videos called from another server with a direct link.



Here are all the types of videos you can now add to your media library:

Using YouTube Videos

  • The display and playback features of YouTube videos (Cloud Video) are the same as local videos.

  • When you import YouTube videos, if ads are displayed on the video, you can not delete them. These are imposed by YouTube, unless you are embedding your own videos and have decided not to monetise them and have disabled ads.

  • Since YouTube videos are hosted on the YouTube platform, their loading speed is independent of the Klynt  player. The videos can therefore sometimes load faster or slower than your own media which can affect the timing of your sequences.

  • If you try adding a YouTube video that has share/embed restrictions on it by its uploader, an error message will be displayed and the video will not be imported to Klynt.
