    Brightcove Player Pre-Release Notes

    This document describes the features of the latest pre-release of Brightcove player, as well as how you can try it.
     

    VERSION 6 - v6.46.0

    1 Oct 2020

    • Added support for multilingual metadata
    • Fixed cases where player.language() returned undefined by default
    • Fix a case where catalog parameter defaults could conflict between players on the same page - this was unlikely to have affected anyone except, in rare cases, where players from multiple accounts and of the same version were on the same page
     

    Try new version

    If a pre-release version is available, the easiest way to try out a pre-release version is to go to Studio's PLAYERS module, click on the player you wish to change, and then edit the Player Information . Use the version selector to choose the latest pre-release:

    select player version

    You can update a player to the pre-release version by using a curl statement. A quick overview of curl can be found at the top of the Step-by-Step: Player Management (external site). In the document there is a specific section on how to update your player.

    Here is the curl command to update your player, where you substitute appropriate values for YOUR_EMAIL , YOUR_ACCOUNT_ID and YOUR_PLAYER_ID .

    stuff

    curl \
      --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
      --user YOUR_EMAIL \
      --request PATCH \
      --data '{
        "player": {
        "template": {
          "version": "6.44.2"
          }
        }
      }' \
      https://players.api.brightcove.com/v2/accounts/YOUR_ACCOUNT_ID/players/YOUR_PLAYER_ID/configuration
    
    

    In most cases you will want to publish the player, which can be done with the following curl statement. Again, you will need to substitute correct values where indicated.

    curl \
      --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
      --user YOUR_EMAIL  \
      --request POST \
      https://players.api.brightcove.com/v2/accounts/YOUR_ACCOUNT/players/YOUR_PLAYER_ID/publish
