A couple of weeks ago we released a WordPress plugin for STREAMOTOR. Our partner Limelight Networks has been helping us spread the word about the plugin and we have received several compliments from Jason Thibeault, Sr. Director of Solutions Marketing for Digital Media at Limelight. He wrote a blog about it, and now Limelight is spreading the word. Check out the blog they posted just yesterday:
I get to work with a lot of great technology companies in my role(s) with Limelight Networks. Whether that’s managing our Streaming products (and launching services like Limelight Stream Anywhere) or building solutions such as our new Limelight Orchestrate (more to come on that shortly), I work with some of the best technology partners on the planet. And it’s great to see them launch innovative new services such as imavex did with their STREAMOTOR plugin for WordPress.
I wrote a hands-on review on my own blog but, in short, this plug-in provides video-management capabilities and video content insertion directly in the WordPress publishing interface. So instead of having to paste HTML embed code in a WordPress post (from YouTube for example), you can click and insert directly from a STREAMOTOR video management plug-in right on the post page. Great stuff. And instead of having to open a new browser window and login to the STREAMOTOR interface, you can manage your entire video library directly from within WordPress (through a Media > STREAMOTOR menu). As we have seen with company’s like cesarsway.com, integrating video directly into written content is much more impactful than just having video in a separate “library” as part of your site. Video within content increases engagement and page-view time and just makes the content consumption experience more interesting. And if our DSP-to-LVP integration demonstrates anything, customers are eager for simplified workflows: single vendor, single interface, etc.
What makes this more interesting, from our perspective, is that all the video delivered through the STREAMOTOR system is through the Limelight CDN. This integration is an example of how our technology partners can employ elements of our overall “stack” (Web Content Management, Video Content Management, CDN Services (including Accelerate), and Cloud storage; more on this coming soon) to power their services in a global, scalable, and robust manner.
If you are a WordPress user and want an easy way to manage your video and incorporate it into your WordPress posts from a single interface, STREAMOTOR might be for you.
Note: Limelight Video Platform users also have a WordPress plugin that easily enables them to integrate video content into pages and posts through a unified interface.
