Dear User,

Here is a list of the latest changes we implemented in Aviary during Sprint 27. These will be available on the site as of May 20, 2019.

New Features


It is now possible to embed the Aviary media player in any web page! Simply click on the “Share” button in the Resource page and copy/paste the code.


But not just the player! It is also possible to replicate the full Aviary experience of a Resource detail page on any other website with the “Embed Resource” feature. Simply click on the “Share” button in the Resource page and copy/paste the code.


            • Added the ability to use transcripts generated via the in-app automated metadata workflow as closed captions.

            • Added the ability to find your organization’s unpublished resources in searches when logged in as an organization user.

            • Added the ability to ignore “title” attributes in a WebVTT file on upload when used as a Transcript.

            • Description, Transcript, and Index tabs are now hidden for public users if there is no content in them.

            • Updated language for the “Remove Base Criteria” and “Clear Search” (previously “Start Over”) warnings to make it clear for users.


            • When logging in from another page, users are redirected to the  page they were originally targeting before being asked to log in.

            • Thumbnails for video are displayed at an appropriate aspect ratio in the player.
