    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 .


    curl \
      --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
      --user YOUR_EMAIL \
      --request PATCH \
      --data '{
        "player": {
        "template": {
          "version": "6.44.2"
      }' \

    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 \
