Wednesday, September 22, 2010
If's quite a long time since we release UVG 3, some people even asked if we discontinued this product. Finally, after a few months development the 4th generation of UVG is available with many exciting enhancements.
Below is the most important enhancements in UVG 4, a lot of minor upgrades are not documented.
- Better quality, smaller file size
The video encoding engine in UVG 4 is upgraded to generate more clearer, smoother videos, yet in most case the file size is even much smaller.
- iPhone / iPad support
UVG 4 support H264 "baseline" profile, this kind of videos works perfectly on iPhone and iPad.
- Media Center
The new UVG_MediaCenter module offers complete different look & feel to deliver video contents, it allows you to browse, watch, rate and comment videos in a single DotNetNuke module.
- Flexible encoding strategy
UVG 4 allows you encode a low quality and a high quality version for each video uploaded. You can configure it to use flv + h264 encoding, or h264 + h264 encoding, or flv encoding only... remember H264 encoding is supported in UVG Professional Edition only.
- Sub Categories
You can create unlimited levels of sub categories in UVG 4.
- Easily add videos from Youtube
Youtube offers different formats of embed codes to embed a video to elsewhere, they may have different size, color and behavior, but UVG can convert these embed codes to have a unique appearance. This also works when you add a youtube video just with "from internet URL" option.
- HTML 5 <video> tag support
<video> tag in HTML 5 standard allows you to deliver video contents without any 3rd party plugin like Flash, UVG 4 allows you to use this tag instead of flash for specific browsers.
- Live video record
If you have a Flash Media Interactive Server or Flash Media Development server(FMS), UVG allows you to record videos with your webcam and publish it via RTMP protocal.
- Active social integration
UVG is able to notify active social 1.8+ through its journal API when a new video is added.
