Different Usage of Vimeo VOD Block in the Community Plus
A VOD is a pre-recorded video which is made available in the Lobby/Session/Vendor Canvas Pages for the attendees to watch, pause, and navigate within their time-frame.
The VOD can also be used to deliver previously-hosted Live Stream Sessions or Simulated Live Stream Sessions. So if your audience missed the initial Session, they can revisit the content at a later time and consume it at their own pace.
What are the Configuration options?
A Vimeo Video on Demand Block has several configuration options. Some of these options are configured in Jomablue, and some are configured in the video streaming platform embed settings of Vimeo.
Vimeo URL can be added in the VOD Block through the Configuration tab, as shown below.
Vimeo VOD Blocks can be configured to auto-play video content, or require the user to click Play to start the video (this is configured in Jomablue).
Vimeo VOD Blocks can also be configured to show or hide video controls such as the play bar, volume controls, play/pause controls etc. However, these controls are configured using the Vimeo video streaming platform embed settings.
What are the Interactions available for this Block?
When a user interacts with a Vimeo VOD Block, a number of interactions are recorded. Interactions that are recorded include:
Video loaded (i.e. the user has loaded a Canvas containing the VOD Block)
Video played (the user has played the video)
Video paused (the user has paused the video)
Video reached the end (the user has reached the end of the video)
Video seeked (the user has used the playbar in the video to seek a specific part of the video)
These Interactions can also be stored for post-event manual reporting.
