Reading time: 2min
In the previous blog post we introduced the intial configuration of ViMP. In this article we explain how to use the ViMP media player to present your videos appropriately. We reveal you everything worth knowing about the functions of the media player and how you can use the ViMP Player in an uncomplicated way.
By default ViMP uses our powerful HTML5 player. The settings of this player can be adjusted in many ways, such as the quality level selector or the option to select different templates. All basic settings can be defined in the ViMP configuration.
In the frontend the ViMP Player has also different functions ready for you. For example, it is possible to freely select the video resolutions (quality levels) defined by you in advance via the quality level selector. During the playback of a video, the player automatically scales to the best available video resolution, depending on the available bandwidth. By connecting a streaming server, such as Wowza, ViMP also supports Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (ABR) for an even smoother transition from one quality level to the next. This ensures a flawless and smooth playback of your media.
For an individual design of your video portal, the player design can also be adapted to your individual requirements. Thus you have the additional possibility via CSS to adapt the ViMP Player to your style guide (corporate design).
Subdivision of contents
But the videos should not only be prepared for you in an optimal and manageable way. In the ViMP media player you can divide your video into several chapters with jump marks under the player, in order to guarantee your colleagues and coworkers more clarity. Chapter markers can also be provided with titles so that relevant information can be accessed directly during knowledge transfer.
Video Editor extension
With the video editor extension of the ViMP Player you can add the final touch to your video before it goes online. The editor gives you the ability to edit videos, change speed, apply a predefined template and create picture-in-picture videos, as well as add consistent intros and outros.
