    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:

    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.

    For nginx: (client_max_body_size)
    For apache: (LimitRequestBody)
