High Holiday services are streamed live to viewers all over the world. StreamSpot and JLicense have partnered to ensure the music contained in each broadcast is licensed properly.
In recent months, many of the major web browsers, both on desktops and on mobile, have made the change to startblocking auto-playing video with or without audio. For browsers like Chrome, this is due to a set of polls that Google has taken from its users that showed an overwhelmingly negative experience for videos with auto-play enabled on websites.
The changes go beyond just the aesthetic look of the player, we have done away with the former slideout “menu", customers revealed that viewers were not sure how to access the menu and were not aware of the many options and features that existed on the player.
As Operations Manager at StreamSpot, the number one question I hear from houses of worship is a fairly basic one: “Why should I stream?” It’s a question that all streaming providers in the industry are asked, and from a technology standpoint, we all mostly answer it in a similar way: in addition to discussing the ability to stream in today’s world, we speak about reaching out to those who cannot make it to services, due to difficulty or distance: those who are sick, homebound, traveling, and cannot make it to services. These are all great reasons, but I recently felt compelled to look deeper as to the “why,” not only why from a practicality standpoint, but from a biblical one. I reflected on the underlying question, “what does the Bible say about live streaming?”
This type of synergy between customer and company will never be more relevant than the coming months as we roll out some of the most exciting products and integrations since the founding of StreamSpot. This is already beginning with the new analytics we featured on the StreamSpot Insider show, which many of you are already trying and giving us even more feedback. In the coming weeks, our Facebook Live integration will be getting a huge overhaul. Many of you have used this integration and asked for a number of features and improvements, and we feel you will be pleased with the next version of our integration. It is on par not only among the best streaming providers, but also any app or website integration on the market. I am very proud of what our team has developed and cannot wait to share it with you all on the next episode of StreamSpot Insider.
It is an exciting time here at StreamSpot and we cannot wait to share what are working on with you. Our ears are to the ground for what is coming up, and I encourage you to continue to explore our features and integrations and let us know what you want next.
