atEnbi developed a fully custom video player for the second phase of the Jagermeister campaign.
The product's goals:
The main challenge was that we couldn't embed youtube or Vimeo on the site. These tools have their visuals, servers, upload mechanics, and management system. The Client wanted to go full custom and asked to recreate "Netflix" but for a fraction of the price it would take to develop such an application.
Our goal was to add a fully custom Video Player to the site while keeping RWD intact and also include files upload with subtitles in the CMS. During the development, we stumbled upon some challenges including:
We've decided to add Dropbox integration for the movie file entries with dynamic file names based on each user's name, surname, and date of upload. Our setup in the WordPress platform allowed Admin to edit/delete users and manage their password recovery process.
Users were with the new video player, and the Client's team appreciated a custom approach regardless of all the challenges we had to overcome while testing the site. The website meets all expectations, business, and functional.
