☁️ Improvements to Upload and new Keyboard Interaction Setting
Your upload experience inside Vidalytics just got an upgrade!
Upload Files Via Drive and Dropbox
You can now bring your videos to Vidalytics straight from one of these third party services.
Simply go to the Upload page and select the one you'd like to use.
Once you've selected it, you'll be prompted to give Vidalytics access to import your videos. Grant Vidalytics permission to bring the files over, and you're set. It's that easy! 🌈

Upload Videos Directly Into Folders
You can now upload your videos straight into folders, so you can stay organized even before going to your My Vids page.
After your videos are done uploading, simply select them from the uploads list, and add them to an already existing folder, or create a new folder for them, all without leaving the upload page!
Once you make your way to the My Vids page to make any edits, all your videos will be stored where they belong 😉

Skip / Rewind with Keyboard Arrows
Your users have been able to use their keyboard arrows to skip and rewind for a while now, but this was only possible when there was a seeking bar present.
To make this feature more flexible to you, we have added the option to also enable these fast forward / rewind actions when there's no seeking bar at all.
The option is turned off bu default, so if you want to enable it, please head over to your Vid Settings page, open the Style section, and click on the 'Skip / Rewind with Keyboard Arrows' option.

Note: the keyboard arrows will still work by default when the seeking bar is present. This option will make them work also when there's no seeking bar visible. This feature does not work with the Rapid Engage Bar.
🎉 Interactive Smart Vids! 🎉
Interactive videos are here! 🧠💡
You can now use "choose-your-own-adventure"-type videos inside of Vidalytics to segment your viewers and give them a sense of control over what they are watching.
Create as many branches as you want, and use them to target your message to the right audience.
With this feature you'll be able to:
  • Add button choices on top of your video as buttons
  • Add clickable areas defined by you on the video itself, in case your video recording has images to choose from already
  • Have up to four choices your viewers can select to go to a different branch in your messaging that connects with them
  • Display your options at the end of the video, or in the middle of it as it keeps playing
  • Choose how much time your viewers have to select an option (or not!)
  • Choose from different countdown timer styles to tell them how much time they have left to choose
  • Have a default video play in case they don't select any of the options you provide, so they are never stuck for too long
  • Give them the chance to jump back to the previous step to change their answer, or to the very beginning of their journey to start over!

This feature is now available to users on the Premium plan or above, and accessible here.
📊 URL Parameters Tracking and Unmute Rates
This one is all about stats 🤓
URL Parameters
You can now see URL Parameters as a Stats segment.
Simply go to your stats page and click on URL Tracking on the sidebar. It'll open up a dropdown from which you can choose the specific URL parameter that you want to visualize on the table.
Screen Recording 2022-11-24 at 17
Your table will then apply the segment, and show you all the values for the specific parameter on the table and the player!

Unmute Rate
Another addition to the stats page is the highly requested
Unmute Rate
. You can see it now in your main metrics below the video.
With this new piece of data, you can see what percentage of your visitors are deciding to interact with your video 😉
If your unmute rate is a bit low for your taste, you can try a new thumbnail or first few seconds of the video to grab your visitors' attention and prompt them to play!
RESET STATS 📊 🔙 and more...
🫶 New Features
  • Resetting Stats
    is now possible from your Stats page for each video. Just make sure you really, really want to get rid of all your video's data, as you won't be able to recover it once it is done.
  • Rewind / fast forward buttons on player:
    you can give your viewers the option to rewind or fast forward your video 10 seconds in case they want to re-watch something or skip to the next section quickly. These buttons will only be visible if they hover over the video on desktop, or if they pause it on mobile. You can enable this feature in Vid Settings > Style > Controls.
Image 2022-11-10 at 12
  • You can
    stretch thumbnails
    over your videos, no matter the aspect ratio of each. Before, we tried to keep you original thumbnail's dimensions, so as to not distort it. You can now overwrite this by choosing to stretch any thumbnail you upload to your video. Find this option under Vid Settings > Thumbnails.
📈 Improvements
  • You spoke and we listened. We have increased the upload file size limit to 8GB from 4GB. Get uploading!
🐛 Bug Fixes
  • Additional users that were added to an account weren't able to view or edit video settings. This has been fixed, and all your viewers should have access to any settings you shared with them.
🫂 Multiple Users are HERE!
Good news for our
you can now add multiple users to your Vidalytics account!
You can also
set different permissions
based on the level of access you want to give to each of those users according to their responsibilities inside your team 😉
How it works:
Find the Users Settings page by clicking your name on the top right of the app. Your page will look like this:
Image 2022-09-29 at 12
Go to +New User and start adding as many people as you want.
Image 2022-09-29 at 12
You can set specific permissions for each user, such as uploading videos, but maybe not changing their settings.
This gives you complete control over who in your business can perform different actions, based on what their role is.

Embed codes available right after upload, and more...
🏗️ Improvements
  • Video embed codes are now available as soon as your videos are uploaded.
    This will save you a ton of time if you're uploading your videos and need to deliver assets to other team members to add to your website. Your video will be available as soon as it finishes processing, and you won't have to do anything else 💪
  • We consolidated ⏩
    Skips & Rewinds
    ⏪ into one button on the Stats page, so you don't have to click twice to see and / or hide the video heatmaps.
  • You can now
    use our Conversion embed code with tag management tools like GTM
    . This will make it easier to integrate Vidalytics with your other marketing analysis tools.
  • We added the
    ability to always display the control bar
    , as opposed to just on mouse hover. You can enable this feature by going to Vid Settings > Style > Seeking Bar > Always show.

🪲 Bug Fixes
  • Exit CTAs were not being displayed on the Tiktok browser. We have taken care of this, and have pushed the fix to all the videos in our platform, so there's nothing for you to do 😉
New integrations, better resolution, and more...
↔️ Integrations
We just released new integrations, and improved on already existing ones. Keep on reading for all the details...
  • Google Analytics & GTM
    just got upgraded, and now you won't have to manually add any code to your site, aside from your GA or GTM code and your Vidalytics video embed code. Check out your integrations page to set up the events you'd like to send to either of these platforms.
  • The
    integration will send the same events you can send to Google, so you can build retargeting audiences based on different player events. Currently, the events you can send are: watched percent, play, pause, pause percent and play gate submission.
  • We also just released a
    integration, so you can send tags and play gate events directly to this CRM, without having to go through Zapier anymore 🤩
  • Lastly, we just made public our
    Make / Integromat
    integration. There's nothing for you to set up inside of Vidalytics for this one, but we wanted to let you know that now you can use the two systems together, just like you've always been able to with Zapier 😉
ℹ️ Important note:
after you have set up all the integrations you want, make sure you republish your videos, so they also get updated to pass data to these third-party apps according to the settings you have selected. You will have to republish your videos anytime you make changes to your integrations for the time being. We're planning on automating this process, but for now it'll be a manual action on your part.
📚Training Center
We have a brand new Training Center that you can always access from within the Vidalytics web app.
For now, it includes introductory videos to the app on how to use all the features and take advantage of all that Vidalytics has to offer.
Keep an eye out for new content on this section of your main sidebar, as the plan is to release new content regularly ;)
Image 2022-08-09 at 19
🐛 Bug Fixes
  • We had a bug in our encoder that was not applying a high enough bitrate during encoding, and lowering videos' quality. We have just pushed a fix for this and now all the videos you upload should play in better quality across the board 🎉
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, hit us up via the chat!
FIXES: Social Media Browsers 📱
This will be a short one: we have made a few fixes to our player that make it more reliable when playing on social media browsers.
  • Videos used to not be playable on the
    Tiktok browser.
    We have pushed a fix for this, and now your videos will play seamlessly there.
  • Video playback was not reliable on the
    Facebook browser
    when accessing from an iPad. We have fixed this, and now videos play without issues on Facebook browser across all device types.
That's all for now. Stay tuned, we'll have some cool updates coming the near future 😉
[v2.7.0] FREE plan, improved player skin, Rapid Engage Bar and more...
v2.7.0 is a big one! Lots of changes in this version, including:
A brand new
FREE plan
for users that want to test drive the basic features in Vidalytics before committing to the more advanced ones 💪
Our other available plans also changed, and you can see the full details here.
Now, onto new features...
📸 Improved Player Skin
We improved our player skin by making the volume controller vertical instead of horizontal, to save space on the seeking bar.
We also added
new Quality controls
, so your users can now select a higher or lower video quality, depending on their speed connection. This is now bundled with the Speed controls in a gear ⚙️ icon on the settings bar.
We also updated the designs of the icons you already knew, to make them look more modern 😉
⏩ Rapid Engage Bar
Our brand new Rapid Engage Bar allows you to hook your viewers at the beginning of your video, by making it seem shorter. It works by moving your seeking bar faster at the beginning, and then progressively slowing it down to normal speed, until it reaches the end of your video.
You can enable it on your videos by going to Settings > Style > Rapid Engage Bar
Image 2022-07-06 at 23
📶 Other Improvements
  • We have added keyboard controls to the player. If the seeking bar is enabled on your videos, your viewers can now use the left and right arrows on their keyboard to fast forward ⏩ or rewind ⏪ 10 seconds.
  • If you have more than one Vidalytics video on your site, and your viewer plays one of them, all of the other ones will be paused. This will prevent overlapping audios, and also bandwidth waste 😜
  • We have made it so all the player URLs work with UTM parameters. Previously, this functionality was reserved only for CTAs, but now you can also add UTM parameters to your countdown timer and expiration links 🔍
[v2.6.8] Timed Custom Content + Video Expiration ⏱️
For this release, we focused on timed items that help you either create a sense of urgency, or reveal elements on your site only when you want to. And so, we just released two new features for you:
✅ Timed Custom HTML elements
These work similarly to CTAs, in that the content will show only at the time you specify on your video, and they're not tied to time on page, so your hidden content appears exactly when you want it to in your messaging.
You'll find this new feature inside of the CTA section on the Settings page.

And if you're using a landing page builder, check this article out.
Video Expiration
You can now set your videos to expire at a specific day / time. This is a great feature to use with limited offers, so people see you're not bluffing when you say your content will be available only for a short time 😉
Image 2022-04-07 at 21

📶 Improvements
  • In the past, sometimes videos that were republished multiple times in a row could take a long time to display changes. We have worked on improving this and you should see way less wait time after you hit the Publish button to get changes live on your site. Yay! 😺
