Overview

In order to keep users up to date with application's crucial information related to its database, physical file locations or application player, VIDIZMO maintains a central repository of this information and helps users update it as per organizational needs.


VIDIZMO allows you to configure Generasettings using Application Configuration keys via Control Panel in your Portal. Here is how you can do this:


Before you start

To understand certain prerequisites, considerations and steps in order to configure application configuration keys, see: How to Update Application Configuration Keys in VIDIZMO


Configuring General Settings in VIDIZMO

You can configure the following in Date and Time section of Application Configuration:


Application Version

Here you can find the version number of VIDIZMO application deployed on your server. It can only be updated via installer. Changing the version number by any other means would crash the application.


Database Version

Here you can find the version number of the database being used in the VIDIZMO application. It can only be updated via installer. Changing the version number by any other means could cause future upgrades to stop working.


Guest User Email

Here, you can define any pseudo email address that you wish to be used for a guest user (anonymous user) browsing VIDIZMO application. This email address will be displayed in tracking reports or in event logs against anonymous users. This helps make anonymous records easily searchable and standardizes reports generated for viewer analytics.


Development Mode

Defines whether or not application is running in 'development' mode. When set to 1, development mode is turned on. In this mode, complete exception details including stack trace is returned to the caller for every action. If not, only limited information is returned.


Routes Configuration File

Here you can find the physical path of the file that defines all the possible URLs (or routes) application supports and will generate. Making changes to the file or its path here can cause application to stop functioning.


Official Domain

Defines the main domain of the VIDIZMO application under which all the portals domain will be configured. For example if the domain defined here is abc.com, then the portal can be created using portal1.abc.com and so on. When this key is not defined, the current domain of the application is used in its place. 


CDN Path to serve Static Files

Here, you can define the CDN path of the static resources of application (javascript, images, etc) from where they can be loaded. This helps serving application's static resources from a CDN endpoint for higher scalability.


Note: In order to enable serving of static files via a CDN endpoint, make sure to set up CORS (Cross Origin Resource Sharing) on the application server.  


Default Video Rendition

Here, you can define a default rendition of the video that will be used to playback video content in the application player. This quality is selected if user does not have their own preference. After user selects a particular rendition of their choice then that value will override this configuration.
