WordPress-Brightcove Connector: Frequently Asked Questions

This topic contains frequently asked questions about the Wordpress-Brightcove Connector.

Can I run the plugin on a WordPress install that isn't publicly accessible?

Yes, it will work whether it is public or not however features requiring a call-back to your site such as status updates, uploading videos, etc will be unavailable.

 Are there any filters for plugin/theme developers? 

brightcove_account_actions = [edit, delete]; // What actions are available when manipulating a Brightcove source.

Will this work on multisite?

Yes it will.

Can I use more than one Brightcove account?

Yes, you can add sources from many Brightcove accounts if you want.

Can I set different permissions for users?

Yes. You can find a matrix of user permissions in this document. To change user roles, we recommend using the WordPress add_cap function: https://codex.wordpress.org/add_cap

How does sync work?

The plugin simply pulls information directly from the Brightcove API for display and does not sync videos locally.

How can I increase Maximum upload file size?

Maximum file size is determined by your webserver and PHP configuration. You need to set the value of upload_max_filesize and post_max_size in your php.ini. php_ini_loaded_file() can help you find where your PHP.ini is located.

How do I enable change tracking so I can see who updated a video and when they did it?

Create a custom field of type 'text' with an internal name of '_change_history'. Whenever a video is updated, the username and current time will be added to a list of changes recorded in this field.
