Tips and Tutorials: Video Sharing

Continuing where our Photo Sharing post left off, let’s talk video! Photos may be in the spotlight recently, but some say videos are next, with Viddy and others racing to be the next Instagram of video. Netflix streams Hollywood to our homes, we upload clips to the web—one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube every second—and SocialEngine communities use our Video Plugin to share moments of charity work in Thailand, races at the motocross track, and clips of that videogame we all can’t stop playing, so join the fun! Video sharing is a simple and fun way for members to stay engaged and active in your community.

Want to enhance the default video experience? Check out some cool add-ons created by our third-party developers. Users can upload videos straight from mobile devices with a full-featured mobile app, webchat, have a video widget, and even stream TV channels ! Or, hire developers for a custom feature unique to your community. Whatever keeps your members pressing play!

Please contact us if you have any questions!

    The default SE video is actually pretty good…The only not so good thing about it is every video is titled "object". Any idea of how to get rid of that title?

    1) Take a look at YouTube Page and compare it with current SE Video plugin page.

    can you guys see difference, Thumbnail size or look or feel of Youtube?

    So where we can edit Video Plugin Thumbnail Size and Page look ?

    2) Embedded Youtube video in SE Video plugin is 560×340 size but that's too small. we have 860×343 size space left on page. At least there should be 640×360 size embed Video or HD, wasting so much space :(

    So how we can edit Video Plugin Embed Youtube/Viemo video to 640×360 size or HD.

    Please don't say contact third party developer for customization as this should be basic feature of SE4.
