Guys, as I understand it, according to the vote, you will implement long awaited "Ability to reply comments" first. By what time can we expect this feature: by the middle or by the end of this year?

Unfortunately we never can say about timing, as we never guessed it correctly. At the moment we are working with finalizing 5.4.0 with some more features not included in the voted list. When 5.4.0 is finished and pushed to beta, we will start looking into 5.5.0. We plan to work with HLS, this could have huge impact on our plans depending on how many conceptual changes we will have to put to make it working with all other KVS aspects. Conceptual changes could require additional changes, that will also require additional changes in many areas. Could take 3 - 6 months. Then we also try to add several top voted features from the list.

I would love the ability to be able to set different storage servers for different countries allowing me to put say tier1 countries on a faster CDN and say tier 3 countries on to a much cheaper CDN.

I know you can rate limit within video formats but would like the ability to use completely different CDN for different countries.

This has been possible staring with the first KVS versions:

storage_load_balancing.thumb.png.0f290cab92c1df249d26d155291d8bcc.png

The issue with the current setup is I am just looking to use different CDN urls but keeping the content path the same on both "servers" , this way all content is in one place but could use multiple CDNs depending on the GEO.

Option 1. You need to have 2 storage servers to do load balancing via KVS. KVS will prevent you from creating 2 storage servers for the same filesystem path, but you can workaround this by creating symlink and making 2 filesystem paths working for the same physical directory.

The issue with this configuration is that having 2 storage servers KVS will copy video files to both of them, which will result in increasing video processing time (the same file will be copied twice to the same physical storage).

Option 2. Another possibility is to change this storage server to CDN streaming type (if not yet) and code your custom CDN API script that will do this country check logic inside the script:

- If country is from tier3, then redirect to slow CDN1, otherwise redirect to fast CDN2. Since with CDN API script you have full control on which URL to redirect user to, should be very straightforward to code:

function cdnapi_get_video($file_path, $file_url, $start_str, $limit, $streaming_key)
{
	if (in_array(strtolower($_SERVER['GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE']), ['c1', 'c2', 'c3']))
	{
		// this is tier3 country, return URL to CDN1:
		$expire_key = '... calculate expire key ...';
		return "//cdn1.domain.com{$file_path}?expire=" . $expire_key;
	}

	// this is not tier3 country, return URL to CDN2:
	$expire_key = '... calculate expire key ...';
	return "//cdn2.domain.com{$file_path}?expire=" . $expire_key;
}

And another point here is that in this case you will also need to code invalidation function to submit invalidation requests to both CDNs, so that if a file is deleted from KVS, both CDNs will delete this file from their caches.

I think that s3 protocol is best because I can use Wasabi.com's s3 compatible cloud because there is no charge for egress and it is cheap. I can have my KVS instances on a single little cloud VPS and keep all the data in a cheap cloud. I think that it would make KVS more portable because I won't need to rely on managing my own servers, so I can do more things at once.

Hi! Does Wasabi.com allow storing adult content? Is it possible to use such a tandem for an erotic and soft porn paysite?

when they create the sending of emails of the subscriptions of users or channels to notify by email that there are new users or new videos in the channel ¿?

Please vote for "User notification system, ability for users to get notifications about some events (new comments for their videos for example)" option in this poll to make this feature added faster.

Hi Guys! Is it possible to add a connection of posts to content sources? When it would be useful for us. We write a blog post about the affiliate content of one of our sponsors (contens source) and we want:
1. automatically pull up the link to the sponsor's page in the title of the post
2. display all blog entries connected to the particular sponsor on the page of this sponsor

Thanks, we will consider this, as anyway this is needed to make videos, albums and posts to be in line with content sources.

Guys, do not you plan/want to add preview image for post and its similar settings to "image setting" tab?post.thumb.jpg.0c4057e0e87e9daf7d225119eb43638e.jpg

This is something that could be voted via Better custom fields (ability to specify their type, required, value range). Posts support up to 10 custom files and it is expected that you can upload image files into custom file field. At the moment you can upload image that already has the needed size. But with this better custom fields feature we also plan to allow setting custom fields to automatically resize the uploaded images to the needed size.

- We know about custom fields and use it for preview image, but , it is required to embed posts in other places on the site and manually load the desired size of the screenshot each time is not an adequate option. So "better custom fields feature ... to automatically resize the uploaded images to the needed size" is also needed for posts.

  • Tech Support changed the title to KVS 5.5.0 discussion and poll

One thing I didn't see in this post that should be a simple add on and quite convenient. Currently the support button only sends a message that can only be retrieved from the admin home page when the admin happens to notice the alert. How about the option to send it to the designated company's email?

This is the very obvious thing missing in KVS, it is 100% required so we don't ever included it into the voting. Our nearest priority for sure.

HLS and S3 protocol made for each other, it is desirable to implement them together.

Yes yes yes!!!

 

S3 protocol would significantly expand the storage options for us webmaster and make our storage management A LOT easier. Majority  of S3 storage cost VERY little compare to having multiple storage servers, their speed and bandwidth is also great as well.

 

@Tech Support Please please please implement this feature for the next update :-) !!!

 

Thank you!
