It would be awesome if you could directly support Peertube instances with your player. It is a great opensource platform, but it is missing commercial features that your player could add. It could bring a new group of users to you. https://joinpeertube.org/ https://docs.joinpeertube.org/api-rest-reference.html
I see they offer an iframe-based API for video playback, so it’s similar to YouTube: https://docs.joinpeertube.org/api-embed-player
Are you interested in protecting these videos against unauthorized access too?
thank you, for now we will work on supporting the existing instances: https://joinpeertube.org/instances
What would be the reason to have your own Peertube instance and then post videos from it to a WordPress website?
There are 1,000’s of unfederated instances out there. Peertube is very easy to spin up with docker. Corporate installs using it internally also. We have several clients that want to use Peertube as their “Video CMS” but want a custom site to display content, Sell PPV and VOD, and add the ability to add VAST to the content. This is what I think you could bring to the table. I have a test instance (with s3 and CDN) that I can make you an admin if you would like at any time.
Thanks for the push in the right direction.
We’re keen to support Peertube. If you can find us five unfederated Peertube customers who have bought FV Player Pro and VAST, we are happy to add support for unfederated instances.
Heck – if you are willing to invest in $400 yourself in this improvement, we’ll make sure it works on your domain, include a single VAST license and credit you in the development log for the feature.
Thanks for being part of Foliovision!
Steve, we’d definitely pick up the metadata and captions where possible. Via API would make it much easier. Selecting via a selection screen should work but it will generally be easier to add videos via URL from the target site, but then pick up the metadata, captions, etc. via API.
I.e. our Vimeo implementation allows picking the videos from our backend but usually I just past the Vimeo URL into the editor.
