Announcing Price Changes 🫤(2024)

August 29th, 2023 filled under “Miscellaneous

Since we first launched our Video CMS project we’ve kept prices pretty steady as we wished to provide undeniable value to all the world and price is an important part of that.

A large part of our customers came from non-western parts of the world and pricing was always a sensitive issue for this reason.

Given how times have changed and the unfortunate world-wide economic context we will adjust our license prices to take into consideration the increased cost of living.

Starting next year, prices for licenses will increase by up to $20 USD. For our services the costs will increase by 10%.

If you’re considering locking in the current pricing, we still offer a promotional price for our Video CMS.

Thank you for your continued business and we hope to be of help for you and your projects in 2024.

PHP Melody v3.1

December 12th, 2022 filled under “Announcements, From our Desk

Dear PHP Melody users,

We are excited to announce the release of PHP Melody 3.1, which now includes support for PHP 8!

With this release, PHP Melody continues to provide an easy-to-use, customizable and reliable solution for creating and managing video websites. PHP 8 support means that PHP Melody can take advantage of the latest features and performance enhancements of the PHP language, providing even better performance and reliability for your website.

We encourage all PHP Melody users to upgrade to version 3.1 since PHP 7.x will not be supported for long by your webhosting provider. As always, if you have any questions or need assistance with the upgrade, our support team is here to help.

Updating Your PHP Melody Site

Updating is recommended but not necessary if your webhost still supports PHP 7.4 and will do so in the future. We’ve had reports of instances where webhosts update to PHP 8 without warnings so, please take this scenario into consideration.

This update works only if you have the latest version of PHP Melody; version 3.0.1.  If you’re running an older version our team might help you migrate to this release.

As a customer you can download the v3.1 update package from your Customer Account -> “Download Updates” page.
If you require any help in updating your PHP Melody site, please review the official update guide first.

Thank you!

We’d like to thank all the people involved in our Video CMS project. Thank you all for your help with beta-testing this release. Please don’t hesitate and share your ideas for future updates with our developers.
We’d love to hear from you. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

PHP 8 Compatibility

December 1st, 2022 filled under “Announcements, From our Desk

With PHP 7.x coming to the end of life for support and patches, we will be soon seeing all hosting companies adopt PHP 8 as their default PHP runtime.

We’re working hard to update both our code and 3rd party libraries (which were not updated) to PHP 8.1. Our release schedule is on track and we’re happy to announce we will be releasing PHP Melody 3.1 with full PHP 8.1 support.

This release will include other bug fixes as well but no new features. Those are reserved post this release.

This week we’re in the final stages of testing the code which will be made available next week (if all goes well).

Looking forward to it so stay tuned.

Happy and Safe Holidays!
