PHP Melody v2.3 is Now Available

Written by Andrew on April 14th, 2015

PHP Melody v2.3 is now available. New features in this release focus on two main areas: video playback and video importing.

This release includes the famous Video.JS video player, which has been a popular request among our customers. We’re also bringing support for subtitles in JW Player 5, JW Player 6 and Video.JS. You can specify subtitles (SRT or VTT) for any of your videos and in any language.

The second main area of improvement is video importing. PHP Melody now has API integrations with all three major video sources: YouTube, DailyMotion and Vimeo. This means that you can import any videos form these three major video sites with minimal effort. Simply type your keywords and PHP Melody will do the rest. The speed at which video data is imported is also greatly improved in v2.3.

As with any major release, we’ve addressed numerous bugs and made tweaks to improve your overall experience with our video cms.
