Newbie - Cannot get started was created by mobilewebsitetutorials4u
I am finding this very confusing, I have purchased a FULL MEMBERSHIP YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION and I am looking to use Botr, but I finding it all most impossible to understand what I need to upload into Joomla. I have downloaded various documents, User Manual but still there does not seem to be a straight forward set of instructions.

Please, can someone tell me what is the minimum I need to upload in order to have a playlist of videos running on my website, I think that I want to use a plugin, but I am not sure. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Regards
Mike

Hello,

With botr/video.joomlarulez.com you can not upload directly from Joomla (for now, a dev module is on the road but not yet released), you have to use the dashboard interface, who have an interface for upload video :

dashboard.joomlarulez.com

or by FTP, you can use :

videoftp.joomlarulez.com

to upload large files or batches.

You can use any FTP client and your regular login/password.

We even support Adobe CS, Final Cut Pro and Squeeze.

Then there is a documentation to used our server here :

Hi
Thank you for your help. I had already downloaded and read pdf, I could not understand the section 4.1 select video. It says log into the CMS, which I assume is in my case Joomla, and go to the Videos tab. I cannot see a Videos tab anywhere or are you referring to my dashboard.joomlarulez.com page?

Also section 4.5 grab embed codes, if I copy and past the code, how do I use it? Do I need to upload any plugins, I am confused.

Regards
Mike

1 - Yes, we talk about the dashboard itself:

dashboard.joomlarulez.com/

The tab is :

dashboard.joomlarulez.com/videos/

And click on "Upload new video" on right.

2 - This code i.e.:

For a single video
http://video.joomlarulez.com/players/VIDEO_KEY-PLAYER_KEY.js

Or for a playlist :
http://video.joomlarulez.com/players/PLAYLIST_KEY-PLAYER_KEY.js

Has to bet set in the Joomla extension you used


So now there are three main extensions possible, all have different interest situation, for the 2 plugin it’s for embed a video in article, for the module to embed a video a static module position of your template.

The difference between the two plugin is one is cross-platform (local, remote, rtmp, youtube, vimeo..) and the other works only with our server.

For all you will have (once install) to set first the api, this secure the connection between your server to our server.

You can find that information here:

dashboard.joomlarulez.com/settings/properties/

Then click on Get API credentials

You will have two codes:

API Key
API Secret

These credentials are just as valuable as your login credentials. Do not share them with anybody unless you want to give them full access to your account.

a) For the JW player plugin Advanced:

Download and install.
www.joomlarulez.com/download/doc_download/17-jw-player-plugin-advanced.html

Then step 1: set the api credentials.

Edit in the backend the plugin, select “Video.joomlarulez.com - Bits On The Run” menu and put in the fields:
Api Key
Secret Key

Step 2: use this code to embed the video/playlist in a article :
{jwplayer}&botr.file=http://video.joomlarulez.com/players/VIDEO_KEY-PLAYER_KEY.js{/jwplayer}

or
{jwplayer}http://video.joomlarulez.com/players/VIDEO_KEY-PLAYER_KEY.js{/jwplayer}

b) For the JW player Module Advanced:

Download and install.

www.joomlarulez.com/download/doc_download/13-jw-player-module-advanced.html

Then step 1: set the api credentials.

Edit in the backend the plugin, select “Video.joomlarulez.com - Bits On The Run” menu and put in the fields:
Api Key
Secret Key

Step 2: Set the origin of the playlist “Bits On The run Stream”

Step 3: put this code (i.e):
http://video.joomlarulez.com/players/VIDEO_KEY-PLAYER_KEY.js

In the field:

“Link of the js file”

to embed the video/playlist in the module position.

c) With the BOTR plugin advanced

Download and install.
www.joomlarulez.com/download/doc_download/20-botr-player-plugin-advanced.html

Then step 1: set the api credentials.

Edit in the backend the plugin, and put in the field only the api secret:

API Secret

Step 2: use this code to embed the video/playlist in an article:
[bitsontherun VIDEO_KEY-PLAYER_KEY]

You can install it (but not necessary), it's a button editor, this only help you to type the trigger code inside article.
