So whatÔÇÖs new?
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.
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.
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.
In the past versions of TikiLIVE our chat system was flash based requiring the adobe flash plugin. The new chat system on 4.0 was created using Node.js allowing it to work on just about every media rich web enabled device without the need of a plugin.
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.
Page markup in v 4.0 has been updated so that videos and events will now be displayed in Google video search results and other search engine page results for increase traffic to broadcasters content.
We have updated both our Flash and HTML5 video player making them both fully responsive, lightweight and now with video thumbnail preview for embedded players.
We have updated the set top box module in 4.0 to now stream channel content to Apple Tv with Airplay from IOS devices such as iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
9. New ticket purchasing interface and Additional merchant integration
Ticket and subscription purchasing is now done with our newly added shopping cart. We have also added Additional merchant integration with Authorize.net. This allows users to utilize direct payments via credit card on site rather than using PayPal during checkout.
