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.
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!
