Die wichtigsten Neuerungen in VIMP 4.2

VIMP 4.2 contains many new features that improve the end-user experience and simplify administration. Read below what has changed.

Upload improvements

With VIMP 4.2 your users can already select a preview image for their video from an automatically created selection during the upload. Of course you still have the possibility to upload an individual thumbnail.

When entering tags, suitable terms will now be suggested based on your input. This makes tag input even faster and reduces the risk of typos.

Innovations on the media page

VIMP 4.2 recognizes time specifications in the description text of a video. These are then displayed as a link and when you click on them, your visitors jump to the corresponding place in the video.

The media of a channel, a group, a category or an album can now be browsed simply by clicking on the new forward and backward buttons below the video.

Videos can now be downloaded in all available formats.

Media can now have file attachments. A defined maximum number of files can now be added to each medium, which are then available for download.Extended import and export functions

You can now both export individual media records administratively and import an existing user base via CSV.

Administration

The administration area was fundamentally re-designed and the performance increased. The numerous configuration items have been grouped in a meaningful way so that settings can be found more easily.

360 degree videos

VIMP 4.2 now also supports 360 degree videos. With these you can change the viewing angle in the video arbitrarily and thus “look around” in the video.
