Our monetization platform features a fully developed integration with Knovio.


Introduction

Our platform supports integration with many popular online video platforms. One of these platforms is Knovio.
By integrating your Knovio and InPlayer accounts, you will be able to quickly and easily monetize all your Knovio videos, as well as track the payment analytics straight from your Knovio account.
At the moment, the InPlayer paywall can be used for individual Knovio videos. Knovio Showcase support is coming soon as well, but for the time being you will need to contact Knovio’s Support team if you wish to use this feature.

Let’s take a look at how everything works.

InPlayer Setup

To integrate your InPlayer and Knovio accounts you will be taking advantage of our OAuth & SSO feature.
Log into your InPlayer dashboard, open your account settings menu and under Settings, go to OAuth & SSO.

Create a new OAuth app by clicking on the Create new app box.

Give your new app a name (Knovio for example) and click .

Once you create your new OAuth app, you will need it’s Key and Secret.

The Key will be shown in the app box, but you will have to generate a new Secret.
To do this, click on Generate new…¸ next to App Secret Key and confirm by clicking on .

Your secret will be displayed in a new window.

Copy the secret key by clicking on  and keep it somewhere safe. Note that once you close this window, you will not be able to see the secret ever again and if you happen to lose it or if its compromised, you will have to generate a new one.

Once you have your Secret and your Key, send them over to Knovio’s support on support@knowledgevision.com, asking them to enable the paywall solution on your Knovio account.
Once they do, you can start monetizing your content.

Knovio Setup

Once you get the confirmation from Knovio’s support team that the paywall feature has been enabled, you can start using it on your videos.

To do this, log into your Knovio account and go to your list of videos in the Manage tab.

On the video you wish to monetize, click Share, and scroll down to the Sharing Settings section.

In the Sharing Settings, choose InPlayer Paywall.

In the new window, enter the Title and Description that will appear on the paywall screen in front of the video, and select the InPlayer Branding Theme (if you have one set up).

Then click on .

Next, you will need to set up the pricing for your video. To do this, click on the  button.

You will be redirected to your InPlayer dashboard and land directly into the properties of your video asset

Here, you can set up your asset’s properties.

The right side of the screen is where you can set everything up, and the left side provides a preview where you can see how the asset will look on your webpage.

Asset Preview

In the Asset Preview section, set up the preview image, title and description, as well as the text for the BUY button. These will be the details that will appear on the actual asset preview when you embed it on your webpage.

Note that the Title will also appear on the final payment form on the paywall, as well as the notification email your customers will receive.

After setting everything up, make sure to click the button in the bottom right corner.

Price Options

In the Price Options section, click and set up the pricing.

The section is divided into two tabs: General Info and Additional Info.

Under General Info, set up the following:

  • In the Price description field, enter the price description that will appear on the paywall. Make it concise so that your customers know exactly what they are buying.
  • In the Payment type field, select one of the available payment options:
    ppv – This is a one-time payment which grants access that expires after the end of the specified period counted from the moment of purchase.
    The access period can be selected from the drop-down menu.
    You can pick one of the premade periods, or use the custom period option.
    When using the custom period option, you can specify the exact date and time at which the customers’ access will expire. This is very useful for doing presales since the customers’ access will expire on the date you’ve set up, regardless of when they’ve purchased their pass.
    subscription – This is a recurring payment that is renewed automatically. Access is granted at each renewal.
    The renewal period can be selected from the drop-down menu.
    *Note that once you set the payment type for an asset, you cannot change it. You can change the other payment fields (access period duration, price, etc) but not the payment type. If you wish to set a new payment type, you will need to set up a new price option.
  • In the Amount field, enter the price.
    The currency can be selected from the drop-down menu. If you wish to use a currency that is not in the list, you can contact us at support@inplayer.com and we’ll make sure to add the currency for you asap. We support all currencies that are listed here.

Under Additional Info, you can set up the following settings, depending on whether you are setting up a ppv or a subscription price option.

For ppv:

  • Schedule start
    This is the date and time at which the price option will become available. Note that the time is in UTC.
    If you leave this blank, the price will become available at once, i.e. a few minutes after you save it.
  • Geo-restriction
    With this option, you can restrict the price option to specific countries.
    You can choose to either include (whitelist) or exclude (blacklist) a single country, or use a country set you have created previously.
    You can learn more about setting up country sets here.

For subscription:

  • Free trial
    With this, you can set up a free trial period.
  • Additional fee
    With this option, you can set up a one-time fee that will be charged when the customer purchases the subscription, as an addition to the regular subscription fee. The fee will only be charged once, together with the first subscription charge.
  • Geo-restriction
    With this option, you can restrict the price option to specific countries.
    You can choose to either include (whitelist) or exclude (blacklist) a single country, or use a country set you have created previously.
    You can learn more about setting up country sets here.

After setting everything up, make sure to click the button in the bottom right corner.

Asset content

The Asset content section will already be filled out, so you don’t have to change anything there.

Restrictions

In the Restrictions section, you can set up any geographic, domain, and/or age restrictions for the asset you wish to use.

You can learn more about setting up the restrictions here, here and here.
After setting everything up, make sure to click the button in the bottom right corner.

And with that, your video is ready for monetization.

Go back to your Knovio account, go to the Manage tab and then to the video’s Share settings, and get the embed code or the link for the video.
You can then embed your video on your page or share the link to it and start selling!
