Focus Mode, Private Videos & More

Let’s have a look at all these great new features:

  • Focus Mode
    You can now force your students to watch a video as it will pause when it is not in focus. (when not in the active viewport). This helps your audience stay focused, hence the name. By the way, focus mode works in video pop-ups too.
  • Student Viewer Tracking
    You can now see exactly what your logged-in users are watching and for how long.
  • Private Videos
    You can make any video a private video. Users must then be logged in to view the video. Not logged in users will then see a corresponding message along with a login button on the video.
  • Captions
    If enabled, your users will now see a dedicated caption toggle button on the video player.

They will also soon release a brand-new overlays feature that allows you to add clickable links to your videos. That’s a really great addition to the action bar, isn’t it?
