Today we’re launching a ton of new features and improvements to TrilbyTV.
We just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our TrilbyTV subscribers for all your feedback over the past year. We are happy to announce that today we’re launching a range of new features for TrilbyTV.
Easier Uploading and Progress Indication
We’ve made the uploading process even smoother. You can now enter your videos title, description and categories while your video is still uploading, saving you more time in the classroom. There’s also better indication on when your video is ready to watch.
Search, Profile Images and View Counts
We’ve made it easier to find videos in your feed by adding a new Search box, that lets you search through video titles, descriptions or even usernames to find the video you want, and you can still use the Categories in the sidebar to further filter your search results.
We’ve also added Profile Images to users’ profiles so you can better see who uploaded videos. The Video Feed and Playback screens also show video play counts, so you know which of your videos are the most popular.
Support for Google Login
More and more schools are switching to using Google Apps for Education for their email and we’ve now made its easier to sign up and sign in to TrilbyTV. Rather than creating a new username on TrilbyTV, simply tap the ‘Sign in with Google’ button and enter your existing Google username instead. If you’re logging in for the first time, you’ll also need to tell us your Sign Up Code for your school.
We’ll be rolling out Google login once the update to the iPad app has been approved.
If you’re an administrator on TrilbyTV, you’ll also be able to access the new Dashboard, which gives you an at-a-glance view of your system. You can see how many users and videos are uploaded, how much storage you’ve used and your school’s Sign Up Code. Managing users, permissions and categories is even easier with improved layouts for these areas.
Best of all, this will be accessible on the iPad in the upcoming update. Just tap Admin Dashboard in the User menu to get access to all these new features.
We hope you enjoy the new features and we’d love to hear your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
