Selective data importing (title, description, tags.).
Inline editing the results before importing.
Super-fast bulk importing takes seconds, not hours.
Upload your video or audio files and PHP Melody v2.7.3 will do the rest for you
PHP Melody works with all your favorite video formats: flv, avi, mkv, divx, mov, wmv and mp4. The multi-part upload process guarantees uninterrupted uploads every time.
Planning to upload 3GB files? No problem, because there are no file size limitations. However, be mindful of your disk space requirements and make sure that you hosting account has enough disk space.
Planning to allow your users to upload videos? No problem. Registered users can add their own videos. The approval process can be fully automated or moderation-based. Furthermore, you can limit how many videos each user can upload/day or the size of each upload among other settings.
Automatic Video Embed
Unique to PHP Melody are the built-in presets for 40+ of the most popular video sites. This means that adding videos from Dailymotion.com, VK.com, Vimeo.com, etc. is done automatically for you. Copy/pasting data is not required when adding videos from any of the 40+ supported video sites.
But what if any of those videos is taken down or no longer works? For that purpose, we’ve built the video checking bot which automatically checks the health of your entire video collection and reports problematic videos.
You won’t find any other Video CMS that can do this.
Traditional Video Embed
Embedding videos not covered by our “automatic video embed” presets can be added to your site the old fashion way.
Embedded videos are tightly integrated into your site’s back-end and front-end. There is no difference when it comes to managing or displaying them on your site.
Live RTMP video streaming
Broadcast live to the web and mobile devices alike any RTMP stream. Bundled with PHP Melody are smart and capable video players such as FlowPlayer and JW Player. They enable live streaming of any RTMP feed.
For example, you can use your Wowza Media Server to stream content directly onto your site. There’s no other software to install or configure. Add your RTMP link and PHP Melody will take care of the rest.
Similar to any other videos, live streams can be protected or made available only to registered users.

As more and more people use PHP Melody the better the software gets. Partly due to user feedback and partly due to code reviewers. Over the past few months we’ve received reports on how we can improve and strengthen our code. Several crucial security holes were patched in v2.7 thanks to reports made by such people.
We now invite you to log into your account and download the v2.7.3 update package. Updating from v2.7.2 to v2.7.3 is seamless. The update will not overwrite any changes to your layout or code base. Please note that you will not have to update your theme to any plugins after applying this update package. In addition to the security patch, we’ve included fixes for the Facebook and Dailymotion video sources.
As a precautionary measure, we’ve patched all recent releases since v2.7. So, if you’re updating from PHP Melody v2.6 to v2.7 your site will already be secured. All things considered, we still recommend updating all the way to v2.7.3.
