We wouldn’t be a innovating company if we hadn’t thought about the mobile market. By just sending an e-mail to email@example.com you can request your branded Android and iPad Parleys channel app.
When the app is created your users can watch every presentation from your Parleys channel on an iPad and Android device. And in addition users can also download the presentations on their mobile device for offline viewing. This way you can watch de presentations when you are on the train, air plane or even when on holiday!
Here are some snapshots of the Devoxx 2012 iPad app.
The list of all the presentations on the channel.
The power of the Parleys publisher on your iPad or Android device. You can choose to browse through the slides below the presentation like on the normal Parleys viewers.
Choose landscape or portrait view. The video will automatically adjust to your desire.
You can choose to download any talk for offline viewing then just click downloaded talks to every single one.
Uploading a massive amount of presentations is often a lot of work to do on your own.
Keep the pressure of your back and divide the work amongst your co-workers, invite them to register to Parleys and add them as a publisher or an admin to your Channel. Publishers are restricted to only upload presentations and work on the timeline whilst the Admins get FULL access to every edit page in your channel.
Go to the Edit page of your Personal Channel. Click on the ‘Admin’ or ‘Publisher’ tab on the Edit Menu. Just type in the name of the user you want to add and press enter to give them access. From then on the channel will be visible in the menu on their personal homepage when logged in.
Do you want to use the Parleys platform for internal communication or share confidential content to a select audience? Then change your entire channel to private access.
Go to the ‘Edit’ page of your Personal Channel. In the Channel Information tab you will find a box where you can enable or disable public access.
Who can now view your presentations?
You have the control of every visitor for this channel. Add the viewers who can access to your content by putting there names in the ‘Viewers’ tab. All the viewers have to be registered on Parleys.
If someone isn’t yet a Parleys user you can send them an invite via their e-mail. This way they can click on the invite, register on Parleys and get access to your private channel.
Up until now there was no way to store your favorite videos or channels in an easy to find list. We knew there was an increasing demand to stock up on good videos and watch them later… Today we introduce you the Heart of Parleys!
No really, there will be a Heart icon on every channel or video on Parleys. Clicking this will make the Heart fully blue and automatically link that specific video/channel to your homepage menu. That icon is located just below the video on the left side next to the thumbs (or just below the banner on the right side in a channel page).
Don’t have enough time to watch the entire presentation or did you just find an interesting one that you want to see later? You will now ‘see’ an icon of an Eye just below the video on the left next to the thumbs and the heart icons. Clicking this will turn the ‘Eye’ completely blue and link the video to your ‘Watch Later’ list.
So how do you get to these lists? There are 2 ways, you can see this list on the homepage when you’re logged in or you can click your profile button on the top right to open a menu.
Menu 1: Homepage
Log in to Parleys and go to the homepage. You will see a menu on the right next to the videos. Clicking the tab of your specific choice will open a list of possibilities. You can then choose a video/channel and go directly to it.
Menu 2: Side bar
When you click your profile icon on the top right corner you will get a menu. Depending on the choice the specific subject will be opened in a side bar. In this side bar you will get a nice list of all the chosen videos/channels.
You can remove a presentation/channel from your list on 2 ways. You can go to the channel/presentation page and click the icon again to disable it’s value or you can open your sidebar again and just click the ‘x’ to remove it from the list.
Another cool feature is you can scroll through your History. In all the menu possibilities that are explained above there will be a tab containing the latest 25 videos you visited.
So these are the new features on Parleys. Enjoy!
Another benefit of the Pro account is the possibility to upload a personal INTRO & OUTRO video to every presentation of your channel. Simply go to the ‘edit’ page of your channel and choose ‘Intro/Outro’ in the edit menu.
Now you will see the two panels were you can upload a video as intro or outro. This video will be played before/after every presentation on your channel. This gives you the opportunity to inform the viewers on an upcoming event, product or just a infomercial of your company/organisation. Try it out now!
Custom channel branding allows you to give your Personal channel a personal touch. Match it to your personal website by adding some of your own artwork.
Go to your channel and click the ‘Edit’ button. You will get an entire menu where in the second line on the left there will be ‘Teaser’. Click this to open all the possibilities to customise your channel.
Write down a ‘Headline’ you want people to see on the banner when they visit your Personal Channel and complete the text with a possible ‘Sub-line’. Now add your background image (preferable 1200×300) that will be visible on top of the Personal page including the given information on the ‘Headline’ and ‘Sub-line’. To activate this teaser just enable the ‘Active’ button.
Enabling the ‘Detail’ button will show how many visitors and downloads your channel ever got. It even show some of the details or possible payments needed to watch the videos.
This can be your result!
Do you wonder how many views your presentation got the day you tweeted it? In which countries your presentation is seen?
You can see all of this information with the ‘Analytics’ Pro feature. Just below the presentation on the right side you will find the ‘analytics’ button between ‘Edit’ and ‘Timeline’. This allows you to see the unique visitors (blue line) and page views (green) for any selected presentation within your channel.
We’ve also added the country information from your presentation visitors giving you a better view on the demographics.
