Rumble Enables Video Privatization Through Domain Whitelists or Blacklists

 

Today Rumble proudly launched a new feature so creators can have more control over their distribution. This new DRM (digital rights management) feature allows video creators to blacklist or whitelist specific websites, including Rumble.com from displaying their videos.

In order to take advantage of the new feature, a creator must create a channel and place specific video content in that channel. Once the channel is created, the creator can add a whitelist or blacklist restriction to their channel. All the videos contained within that channel will now have the applicable restriction on that group of videos.

“Transparency and control are very important elements when trying to drive value to creators” says Chris Pavlovski, CEO of Rumble. “Adding these privatization controls takes us a step closer in delivering the most powerful video platform for creators of all types.”

Rumble currently has over 55,000 active creators on their platform, mostly comprising of social video creators that are filming interesting moments at home, but also includes larger creators like America’s Funniest Home Videos, Reuters, and Storyful. The new feature will be of major importance to long-form creators or subscription based websites that only want to have their content displayed on a single domain or behind a paywall.

To access your Restriction Manager: Your Channels >  Select Restrictions >  Select from “No restriction”, “BLackList” & “Whitelist”.

With this new tool, Rumble is giving creators an even tighter oversight over their content allowing them to control exactly where their videos can or can’t be shown.

Rumble Launches Video Embeds for Reddit with No Ads

Hello Rumblers,

Today Rumble proudly announces that we are launching direct video embeds for Reddit.com through Embedly. Additionally, Rumble will provide a superior viewing experience for the Reddit community by disabling all advertisements on the Reddit embeds.

“We put a lot of emphasis on user experience, so performance is very important to us. We optimize everything from the player being rendered in the browser to the infrastructure delivering it to the user” states the CTO, Wojtek Hlibowicki. “Our player is usable even before everything is fully loaded. For instance, our user interface loads separately and seamlessly hooks into the player. In the end, the Rumble player appears to be loaded as if it was part of the content on the page.”

Starting today, not only can you can use Embedly to easily embed Rumble videos on your site, but you can also share your Rumble video links directly on Reddit and the video will play within the Reddit website. Through Embedly, this also enables direct embeds on other websites such as Medium.com and many more.

With Rumble’s increasingly large portfolio of exclusively managed social video, the Rumble creator community can now easily access the Reddit audience in a way that provides transparent tracking of their videos. Additionally, Reddit has more than 50 thousand active communities and over 8 billion pageviews a month, giving Rumble creators a great way to leverage a largely untapped platform with a massive audience.

Let’s get Reddit ready to Rumble!

Video Search Improvements, New Design, Custom Video Feeds & Leaderboards

video search

Rumble launches new video search, new design, custom video feeds and creator leaderboards.

First off, Happy New Year to all Rumble’rs. The year of 2016 saw the fastest growth we’ve ever experienced. Rumble cracked into the top 250 websites, as ranked by Quantcast and Alexa. None of this was possible without the help of our creator and publisher community. As we strive to become THEE video platform for everyone, our mission will continue to “bring the most value to video”. 

In our efforts to be the best video platform, Rumble has launched and revamped major components to start the New Year.  Here’s what we did…

Video Search Improvements

Users can now toggle a drop down in the search bar to search for content by video title or by channels/users. Searching by video will populate all videos related to the keywords entered in the search box. Searching by user and channel is a new feature we have added to allow users to browse for specific content creators.

We also made some optimizations to our search engine to improve our results accuracy. Our aim is to continuously improve Rumble user’s browsing experience. We believe our updates will allow users to spend less time looking for relevant content.

A New Design

We are excited to announce the launch of the new Rumble homepage and new design. The streamlined layout has been designed to encourage discovery of new content and engagement with our community of creators.

Custom Video Feeds

The homepage has been re-designed to display only two video feed sections instead of three. For users with active accounts, their homepage will display “Latest social videos based on your subscriptions” and “Editor Picks”. Videos displayed will be generated based on relevant video content based on your subscribed channels.

User’s who aren’t logged in or haven’t created a Rumble account will have access to “trending social viral videos” and “editor picks”. We made this update to better target relevant content of interest to users. All Rumble users will still be able to access other feeds through the navigation menu.

The updated video feed layout will also display more details and provide higher visibility to creators and channels of the videos.

Leaderboards

leaderboards

We’ve added a leaderboard to display channels with the most subscribers and the most views. Our top content creators will be displayed here where user’s can click through to view their videos or subscribe to their channels. In the near future we will be expanding these leaderboards to show more detail.

NEW TOOLS: New Rejection Process, Embed with Start/Stop Times, and Share Velocity

Our team is always looking to continually improve our tools and features to enhance your Rumble experience. We are pleased to announce the release of the following features.

Update To Our Video Rejection Process

Our trained content discovery team is always looking to license the best videos with viral potential. Unfortunately, sometimes we’re unable to accept a video for a number of different reasons. Over the course of the the last few years users have reached out to our team requesting reasons why their video was rejected.

At Rumble we believe in providing complete transparency with our creators, so we’ve built in a new functionality in your video dashboard. When you go to your video status pages you’ll notice a Rejection button in the bottom right corner of rejected video. When you hover over this button the reason for rejection should appear in a lightbox. If you believe the reason for rejection is not valid, please free feel to contact our team and we would be more than happy to revisit your video.

Embedding Videos with Start and End Times

We’ve added the ability to embed videos with specific start and end times. This will allow you to embed a customized clipped section of the video on your own webpage.

First thing you have to do is to decide the start and end time parameters for your chosen video.After viewing the video and determining the start and end times you will have to convert the minute formatting into seconds.

For example: Start time 1:10 and end time of 2:58 will mean the parameters are at the 70 and 178 second marks.

Next, click the embed button on the video you wish to embed. This will open the following embed lightbox. Create your line of code by using the following script to the end of the source link: “?start=[start]&end=[end]”. Replace[start] and [end] with your calculating parameters. Example: start=[70]&end=[178] If you want to specify a starting time and no end time, simply omit the end parameter.

Finally, copy the entire script to grab your customized embed code and you’re ready to embed the video onto your page.

Share Velocity

You may have noticed a new “Sort By” option labelled “Virality”, accompanied with a percentage mark. The virality of a video is a new measurement we’re adding to Rumble to allow both users and our team to analyze a video’s Facebook click to share ratio. The higher the virality percentage, the more shares to clicks the video is getting through Facebook. This helps us analyze performance factors of your video such as reach and engagement.
Once again, we thank you for being a part of the Rumble community and we look forward to continuing to improve our service. Hope to see you Rumbling 🙂

Rumble Viral Ranks 1st on YouTube for Pets & Animal

Pets & Animals Leaderboard by Tubular Labs

According to Tubular Labs, Rumble Viral has taken the top spot for the Pets & Animals vertical. In the past 365 days the channel has registered over 200 million views and over 110 million views on their pets and animals videos. This puts Rumble 6 million views ahead of 2nd spot and 75 million views ahead of 10th spot in the Pets & Animals vertical.

The Rumble Viral YouTube channel is owned and operated by Rumble.com, a platform where video creators distribute and monetize their videos on multiple platforms. “Being #1 in Pets & Animals is great. But we’re even more proud of the fact that we pass 90 percent of the revenue on our YouTube channels back to the original creator.” Says Chris Pavlovski, CEO of Rumble. “We’re often asked, how and why are we doing this? The answer is simple, our business stands on its own without YouTube revenue.”

When the company distributes user videos to 3rd party platforms or through the Rumble video player, the creator receives 60 percent of the revenue share, opposed to the 90 percent when distributed to YouTube. Their channels on YouTube are just one of the hundreds of places that Rumble helps distribute viral and social video. The company recently announced distribution partnerships with Reuters, The LAD Bible, LittleThings and ViralNova. This adds to the impressive roster which already includes MSN, AOL, and Yahoo among many others.
