This is a call to all Sharimg.com users...you lucky people! Sharing version 4.0 is here with some brand spanking new features to help you get the most out of your favourite site for sharing sports video analysis! 

 

The new update includes five new features which cover all aspects of the process of using Sharimg. From uploading videos, through user creation and on to custom matrixes and presentations.

 

The main change? Well, the launch of the Sharimg Uploader is a big one. It’s a desktop application which allows you to optimise upload times and video quality, but there’s much more to tell you about besides this.

 

By the way, if you’re not already a Sharimg user, read on anyway, some of these changes might just convince you that it’s the best option for sharing your analysis work.

 

Let’s get started...

Sharimg Uploader: An App to Optimise Uploads

 

As we’ve already said, the Uploader is the biggest new feature in this update. Basically, it’s a desktop application which allows Administrators or Super Administrators to improve upload times and video quality.

 

Additionally, the Uploader will allow you to add extra information to each video before uploading it. For example, you will be able to:

 

•    Choose a thumbnail to display.
 
•    Choose a custom video name.
 
•    Choose a folder in which to save it.
 
•    Write a description of the video.
 
•    Activate highlights.
 
•    Decide who to share the video with.

 

There is also the option to upload multiple videos at the same time, although using this method will limit the above options to choosing who you share the video with.

How to Download and Install the Sharimg Uploader

 

The Uploader is included in all Sharimg plans at no extra cost.So, how do you get your mitts on it? It’s simple…

 

The next time you upload a video to the platform, a new window will appear with three options:

 

1. Download Uploader

 

2. Open Uploader

 

3. Upload Video from Platform

 

If you choose the first option, and we thoroughly recommend that you do, the application will be downloaded and installed on your computer and an icon will be created on your desktop for quick access.

 

From this moment on, you will be able to upload directly from this app, meaning that you don’t have to go to the Sharimg platform to do so.

 

The second option, “Open Uploader”, simply allows you to do just that if you already have it installed.

 

The third option allows you to continue using Sharimg in the tried and tested way that you’re already used to...but again, we recommend that you give the Uploader a fair trial!

Create User Groups

 

Our second new feature makes it easier for Administrators and Super Administrators to create new users.

 

Until now, new Administrator or Standard User roles had to be created one by one. No longer, as we’ve added the “Multiple Users” option. Click it and follow the instructions.

It’s a simple task. Download the template (an Excel file with several columns), input the requested data and upload it again. Done! 

 

Some Things to Take into Account 

 

There are a few things which you should be aware of in order to upload the Excel template correctly. These are:

 

•    The same email address CAN be used repeatedly for more than one user.
 
•    The username CANNOT be repeated and must be unique. New users with repeated names will NOT be created.
 
•    In the “User Role” column, in the drop down menu, you must choose between A (Administrator) or U (User).
 
•    If you select the name of a group that does not exist, the user will NOT be created.

Errors When Uploading Templates

 

If the Excel form is uploaded with errors, text will appear highlighted with a red cross, indicating the reason why the user has not been created.

 

To correct the error, you can either amend the previously uploaded Excel or upload a new blank template with only the users that need corrections.

 

If you choose the first option, you’ll get several errors telling you that the other users, those that were created successfully on the first upload, already exist. Ignore these and check that the others have been created correctly.

How to Share Videos That Are Already on the Platform

 

By checking the "Share All Videos" box, new users will have access to all videos that are already uploaded to this account.

 

If you are a Super Administrator, you have control over various accounts and, therefore will have an additional option where you can select which account each created user is assigned to.

 

Note: You can upload as many Excel templates as you need.

 

Presentation Statistics

 

This feature allows you to access to the following information for each of your lists: 

 

 
•    Duration of the list.

 

•    Number of clips included in each presentation list.

 

•    Views. How many times all registers have been watched 100%. If they have not been watched 100% the number will be 0, although it will be possible to check the percentage which has been played.
 
•    Comments. How many comments have been added. Keep reading to find out more about this feature.
 
•    Shares. How many times the list has been shared.

Presentation Comments

 

This update will allow all users to add comments to registers in presentations. To see comments, go to the relevant register and, at the bottom of the list, the comments icon will change to blue and display a number showing how many comments have been added.

You’ll also be notified of new comments in the main menu.

Sharing Custom Matrixes with Standard Users

 

Before this update, custom matrixes could only be shared between Administrators. From here on in, Standard Users will also be able to access these matrixes.
