That's right. Starting today we're giving this to everyone using Clover Sites, and the update is free and ready for you to use right now! This new feature lets you quickly upload sermons and other important announcements to your site. Best of all, your visitors can view your media directly on the page in beautiful high definition. We've also optimized it to provide the best possible streaming experience for any type of connection. So no matter where you are or what device you're on - your media's going to look and sound just right.
If you're ready to get started, check out our Media Player topic in the Help Center for step by step walkthroughs and helpful tips as you begin.
This is just the first of a few phases for the media player, so some of the features that aren't on there yet will be added in a future phase. Here are some of the things to look forward to early next year:
Podcasting - Early next year you'll be able to create podcasts from the audio files in your media player and upload them to iTunes!
Thumbnails - Right now the thumbnail for your video files is created by taking one of the frames from the first portion of your video and audio files are displayed with a black thumbnail. We'll be releasing the capability to use custom thumbnails for both video and audio files soon!
Search Feature - One of the feature's we'll be launching is the ability to search for specific media files by title, speaker and series. This will make it really easy for your visitors to quickly find that sermon they've been wanting to hear.
Sorting - Currently, your audio and video files are sorted and organized by date. Early next year, you'll also be able to sort your files by speaker, series and title as well.
We'll be sure to keep you all updated on when to expect those new features as they get closer to launching. In the meantime, check out Phase 1 of the most anticipated feature for Clover Sites 3 - today!
