Recent questions from F.A.Q

We are having to move away from Vimeo after discovering that it is banned/restricted in Indonesia.

Are there any geographies where Publitio docs/videos cannot be served?

Thanks.

Not that we are aware off. Some people reported issues with China Great Firewall, and some countries like Egypt have their own countries firewall in place. You can test different servers bellow :

https://media-us.publit.io/file/tummy.mp4 United States East(New York) data center
https://media-us.publit.io/file/tummy.mp4 United States West (Oregon) data center
https://media-us.publit.io/file/tummy.mp4 Europe East (Sweeden) data center
https://media-us.publit.io/file/tummy.mp4 Europe West (London) data center
https://media-us.publit.io/file/tummy.mp4 Asia East (Singapore) data center
https://media-us.publit.io/file/tummy.mp4 Asia West (India) data center

If server is accessible for specific country it will work for the end visitors also.

Hi, do I have to create videos with subtitles or does Publitio support SRT files?

It seems to work after removing "Content-Type": "multipart/form-data" header.

HEllo
Its possible to do that :
Take action when the video is 100% viewed

for example execute javacript on the page.
It is to make a button visible only when the viode is seen at 100%

Not yet, but we will see if possible to implement something like this in feature player updates

Hi there - The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute designed to ensure equal access to opportunities and benefits for qualified individuals with disabilities. In many state, government, and education institutions, videos must include ADA-compliant captions.

I'm hoping to continue to use Publit.io as my CDN for all my files (video especially), but the lack of ability to upload caption files is making me use other video options (by law).

I know I could 'burn' the captions in, but because our videos need to be subtitled for multiple languages, that's not an efficient option.

Are there plans to incorporate a captioning file (SRT) option into the video feature? I don't need automatic captioning like Youtube or others, but I do need the ability to upload a previously created SRT and have it display in-video for my audiences. Hoping this is in the pipeline? Could you confirm? Thanks so much!

When can we expect the next player update? Like Lisa, we will like to use Publitio but the lack of SRT ability has caused us to consider other companies.

When I upload files I get an error message. Please see this short video that shows the problem:

share.getcloudapp.com/L1urWPNK

I have tried on both Firefox and Chrome and still same problem.

It looks like it is working now, and even better it updates the files without me pressing F5 to refresh the browser window.

Hi, I am developing a Flutter app and using Publit,io to host video files uploaded by users. I am currently following this post: <a href="https://itnext.io/serverless-video-upload-and-encoding-with-firebase-storage-cloud-functions-and-publitio-a4b2997b1508</br" rel="nofollow" >https://itnext.io/serverless-video-upload-and-encoding-with-firebase-storage-cloud-functions-and-publitio-a4b2997b1508</br</a>> Everything was working fine but now most videos are not accessible because the access token has been expired. I don't know how to generate a new Access Token for my Flutter App to access video contents. In the app, I simply use the download_url (provided after a successful upload) to get the video. Could you please provide the solution or some pointers for my use case? Thank You

Hi,

if you set files to be private and use Iframe to copy-paste code, you will generate a token, and that token copied will expire in 24h.
I would suggest making the file Public and just enable domain-level protection, that way even if someone shares a link I can't open it as it's not coming from your website.
You can use plugin or sdk to retrieve fresh urls (with new access tokens) https://publit.io/docs/#download-sdks

Publitio, can you please give some example or further explanation for upload progress report feature? I am testing paid subscription now, and your product looks very promising! But for use case, where end users will upload videos(potentially big) on custom website, upload progress report is a must. Embedded Upload Widget is an awesome solution too, can you please give this feature status as of August 2021?

Thanks for great service!

New Premium plan is unlimited i.e it starts with $9/month and includes 50GB storage and 100GB bandwidth, and if you go over that limit you pay-as-you-go for extra storage and/or bandwidth used.


This is extra monthly price per gigabyte (above included bandwidth) of additional bandwidth used :
Next 0-1 TB: $0.075 per GB
Next 1-10 TB: $0.065 per GB
Next 10-50 TB: $0.055 per GB
Next 50-100 TB: $0.045 per GB
Next 100+ TB: $0.035 per GB

This is extra monthly price per gigabyte (above included storage space) of additional storage used:
Next 0-10 TB: $0.035 per GB
Next 10-50 TB: $0.030 per GB
Next 50+ TB: $0.025 per GB
