Warpwire Summer Upgrade: New Features

By: Todd Stabley

The Warpwire team has been working hard all summer on v. 1.8, which contains a wide range of new features we’re very excited to be able to share with the Duke community as of this morning when we went live with our upgrade. Here are the highlights:
  • A completely new Video Player with improved streaming performance, multispeed playback (.25x, .5x, 1.0x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x), and inline sharing
  • User Hotspot Analytics–Media Library admins and asset owners can view which users have watched a video, with custom date ranges and can view which segments a user has watched
  • Custom Video Thumbnail – Choose from up to 10 possible frames from the video as the video thumbnail
  • New admin tools including the ability for admins to “Become a user” for support and troubleshooting
You can select a thumbnail for your videos in Warpwire 1.8!
