We have some exciting updates to share with you. The MZ Team has been working extremely hard to solve more of your video delivery challenges and greatly improve your experience using the platform. Have a look!
Now Available: Export Collections for USB & Offline
Our Offline USB Export feature is back and better than ever! It has been redesigned to deliver a superior experience to your clients. You can now export any collection as a desktop application. This provides a consistent viewing experience without the problems that arise from using a web browser offline.
This unique solution from MediaZilla is perfect for those wanting to provide clients with something tangible and much more professional than just the video files by themselves. This desktop application can be downloaded and delivered to your clients on a USB drive or sent via Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. giving them the same great experience as the web version without the need for an internet connection.
Creating the offline collection has never been easier. Select “Export Offline” from the collection’s menu, then “Build Now” from the pop-up. You will receive a notification when it is ready to download.
Desktop Uploader App (in-process)
This feature will allow you to upload videos to MediaZilla from your computer by placing them into a watch folder. For example, Zoom recordings and exports from your editing program can auto-upload when they complete.
We recently released an alpha version to users for feedback. If you are interested in helping with testing please drop a post in our User Group.
Copy a Collection (in-process)
The ability to copy a collection is a very valuable feature as it saves a tremendous amount of time. Copying a collection is useful when needing to make an alternate version of a collection (with fewer or more videos), or when using one or more collections as a template.
This feature is in development. We will post more frequent updates in our User Group.
Closed Captions (research phase)
We are in the early stages of building support for closed captions. As such, we need some volunteers that can help us shape this feature. Initially we are looking for people currently delivering videos with closed captions. Please make a post in our User Group if you are open to providing insights on your current workflow and your pain points. Thanks!
Provide Your Input for New Features
We have created a specific portal to centralize input on new features. Please spend some time sharing your ideas on features that will provide value for you and your business. We will be leveraging this input to help shape our product roadmap. https://portal.productboard.com/rxczxl6sla956cjpubabzkdh
We also spent time greatly improving your experience using the platform by fixing some annoying bugs. Thank you for reporting these issues and for your patience while we tracked them down.
- Fixed a bug in Safari whereby the video player sometimes disappeared
- Updated digital delivery invitations to address case sensitive issues
- Fixed a bug in the web app whereby only the default fonts and highlight colors of collections were displayed for digital delivery recipients
- Fixed a bug that prevented the dashboard from loading on old browsers
- Fixed a bug that allowed collections to have just a space as their title, which prevented the dashboard from loading them
