TikiLIVE version 4.0 is HERE! This new release is a huge leap forward of the platform packed with more features than any other release to date offering a total overhaul on the design and usability. The entire Eyepartner team is extremely excited with the new version and would like to share with you all the new benefits of being a broadcaster on TikiLIVE v 4.0 or upgrading your own Platform to the latest version out of our lab.

So whatÔÇÖs new?

v4-responsive
1. Let’s start with the all new responsive design
TikiLIVE version 4.0 is built on the bootstrap standard pioneered by Twitter to simplify the responsive nature of sites for improved usability for tablets and mobile devices alike. The new design also offers a updated simple to use interface that incorporates a homepage image slider for marketing and sale opportunities for channels, videos, subscriptions and additional services. The overall user experience is greatly improved while also allowing reduced delivery times to white label sites.

2. Simplified registration & Openid with Facebook
We have eliminated most of the information needed to sign up allowing users to add that information later if they so choose. With Open Id though Facebook users can now sign up and log in with their Facebook accounts.

3. Extremely social
In version 4.0 we wanted to make it as social as possible. Users can now make comments with Facebook allowing comments to be posted to users wall and seen in their feeds. We have also added social sharing button for Facebook, Twitter and Google + making it easier for broadcasts and VOD to be shared.

We have offered live broadcasting to Facebook for sometime now and in 4.0 we have added integration that allows our player to be embedded on twitter wall and feeds.
