The most important innovations in VIMP 5.3


6. February 2023


The biggest innovation in VIMP 5.3 is certainly our new Screen Recording feature. But besides that, we are releasing other useful optimizations and improvements with this version. Read below to find out what has changed.

Screen Recording

With VIMP, you can now perform screen recordings directly from the browser and then share them in your VIMP portal.

Simply select which screen, window or browser tab you want to share, click the record button and you are ready to go.

At the end, simply transfer your recording to the server with one click and a short time later it is ready for retrieval in the VIMP portal.

Create tutorials, walkthroughs, webinar content or instructions for new employees or other purposes using screen recording without complicated additional software.

New subtitle editing and subtitle download

To make editing of long videos with a lot of subtitles more comfortable, starting with VIMP 5.3 only those subtitles are offered for editing that are in the immediate neighborhood of the current video position.

In addition, it is now possible to download created subtitles for external further editing.

Google Analytics 4 (GA4)

Google recommends creating a new GA4 property early and including it in parallel with the existing Google Universal Analytics (UA) property to collect a sufficient amount of data until UA is shut down in July 2023.

In VIMP, you can now conveniently enter your GA4 measurement ID via the configuration and thus activate GA4 tracking.

Fill color for preview images

The media format does not always match the format of the media preview images. In case of deviating aspect ratios, you can now specify with which color the blank space should be filled.

You can choose between black, transparent or the average color of the preview image.

New and revised presets

With the VIMP presets you have the possibility to create a suitable output configuration for your use case with one click.

With VIMP 5.3 we have added new presets and revised existing ones.

For example, in addition to the existing presets for enterprise platforms, you will now also find suitable presets for educational platform or livestream platforms.

VIMP Installation Service

Leave the complete installation process of your VIMP platform to us.


The VIMP installation service includes:

To access your server from the outside, we need the following:

We recommend Linux as operating system. An installation under UNIX, BSD or Windows is also possible, but is not officially supported by us.

Minimum server requirements for installing VIMP:




Please install the transcoding tools exactly as described in the documentation. Installing the standard packages is not sufficient due to patent regulations.

CSS modifications
To concatenate modified CSS files, npm must be installed.


As a minimum requirement we recommend:

For productive use we recommend:

We recommend using a RAID controller for additional data security.

VIMP Installationsservice

Überlassen Sie den kompletten Installationsprozess Ihrer VIMP-Plattform uns.


Der VIMP Installationsservice beinhaltet:

  • Vorbereitung Ihres Servers
  • Installation der erworbenen VIMP Software
  • Installation der Transcoding Tools

Um von außen auf Ihren Server zugreifen zu können, benötigen wir folgendes:

  • SSH-Zugriff auf Ihren Server (idealerweise als root)
  • Vorinstalliertes Hosting (Apache + MySQL/MariaDB)

Wir empfehlen Linux als Betriebssystem. Eine Installation unter UNIX, BSD oder Windows ist ebenfalls möglich, wird von uns aber nicht offiziell unterstützt.

Minimale Servervoraussetzungen für die Installation von VIMP:


  • Apache2
    • Version 2.4 empfohlen
  • oder NGINX


  • Version 7.1 – 8.0
  • GD-Bibliothek, openssl, cURL, MySQL, mbstring, PDO, pdo_mysql und XSL-Erweiterungen müssen installiert sein
  • PHP CLI (Command Line Interface) muss installiert sein
  • SourceGuardian Extension (außer für ViMP Ultimate Extended)


  • MySQL: Version 5.7 – 8.0
  • MariaDB: Mindestens Version 10.2
  • InnoDB muss installiert sein

Die Transcoding-Tools bitte genau wie in der Dokumentation beschrieben installieren. Die Installation der Standardpakete ist aufgrund patentrechtlicher Bestimmungen nicht ausreichend.

  • FFmpeg
  • FFProbe
  • exiftool (>10.8)
  • time

Um modifizierte CSS-Dateien zu verketten, muss npm installiert sein.


Als Mindestanforderung empfehlen wir:

  • Quad-Core-Prozessor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 500 GB Festplattenspeicher (die benötigte Größe hängt im Wesentlichen von der Medienzahl ab)

Für den produktiven Einsatz empfehlen wir:

  • Hexa-Core-Prozessor oder besser (mehr Kerne ermöglichen insbesondere eine schnellere Transcodierung der Medien)
  • 32 GB RAM oder mehr
  • 2000 GB Festplattenspeicher oder mehr (die benötigte Größe hängt im Wesentlichen von der Medienzahl ab)

Wir empfehlen die Verwendung eines RAID-Controllers für zusätzliche Datensicherheit.
