In order to be able to play content from Brightcove, you will need two plugins installed for your app:
* Brightcove DS - The data source provider that parses the Brightcove content into something legible to Applicaster systems.
For more information on the Brightcove Data Source Provider, click here.
* Brightcove Player - Allowing to play the content coming-in the Brightcove format.
In this document, we shall be concentrating on the Brightcove player configuration.
Once added to your app, either via the Zapp Plugins section or via the UI Builder Marketplace, the Brightcove Player Plugin will contain an error handling UI/UX.
This is a screen which lets the user know what's going on (and let's them go back or try again), when the video doesn't play. The most common reason is a general playback error or connectivity issues.
There are four new plugin configuration fields which enable this:
As you can see, they already have default values (and the tooltips within the UI Builder, are designed to explain their context).
You can of course, override the default values with text messages and thus customize the language and style to fit that of your app.
Here is an example of what it will look like, using the configurational texts that appear in the screenshot above:
