You can now integrate Socionity with Vimeo. You can bring the subscription you already own and start streaming videos on your own app using Vimeo.
This gives you two big advantages
- There is no minimum price for your collections & videos any more
- You get a competitive price. (See pricing section towards the bottom)
- You get the full quality of the Vimeo Player
Getting a new Vimeo Subscription
If you do not already own a Vimeo subscription, you can sign up for one. Please note that you will need a paid subscription in order to use this feature. If you don’t have one already, you can choose one of the Vimeo Plans starting at $7 per month.
Make sure you read the TnC of Vimeo before you integrate with Socionity.
Before integrating Vimeo
You must have published your app
Make sure you hit publish on the dashboard, and note down your app domain.
In the above image, the app domain is “madhavansdemo2.nity.app”. Note this domain down. We’ll need it in the next step.
Upload the video to Vimeo
You must upload your videos to Vimeo.
Go to vimeo.com and upload your video.
Change the settings on the video
Open the video you just uploaded from the “Manage Videos” section and choose Privacy under General Tab.
Under “Who can watch?” choose “Hide this video from vimeo.com”
Under “Where can this be embedded?” choose “Specific domains” and enter the domain you had noted when you published the app and “build.socionity.com”
Now you are ready to add it to Socionity!
