Gyroskope Now Offers Rental Functionality

Gyroskope is now happy to offer RENTAL functionality to producers! Producers are now able to upload videos and choose between setting a rental duration (set the number of days/weeks a fan has to watch the media) or an access pass (the media expires in all fans’ collections on a specific date). These powerful tools are easy to use, and may be used in conjunction with a typical purchase, meaning a producer may set media to purchase and rental, or purchase only / rental only.

Rental ScreenshotThe fan’s rental experience is also simple and enjoyable! Within the Collection page, a Rentals tab is now available where the user can choose to activate the rental and start the period of time they have to watch the media. Once the rental time runs out, the option to re-rent is shown for a set amount of time, then automatically disappears.

New Feature: HTML5 Player

Gyroskope HTML5 Player

Gyroskope now offers an embeddable share player built completely using HTML5.

As a Gyroskope Producer, you can share your videos on your own website, blog, etc, where fans can view the trailer for free, then follow the link back to Gyroskope.com to purchase your video. Fans who purchase your videos can also embed this player in their personal blog/website to drive people to your profile and videos.

What is HTML5, and why is this important?

According to Wikipedia (the mostly-factual source for all knowledge), “HTML5 is a markup language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web and a core technology of the Internet. It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard (created in 1990 and standardized as HTML 4 as of 1997).” What does it all mean? Basically, HTML5 is what all the best new websites are using, and it has a lot of advantages over the older HTML4, especially in rich media (aka, videos).

But why is HTML5 important to Gyroskope’s share player, specifically? 

That is a wonderful question and thank you very much for asking. The most important point to using HTML5 for our share player is the fact that it works cross-platform. This means that the same video will play and look marvelous on your computer as well as your parent’s slightly outdated computer, or your Android smart phone as well as your friend’s iPhone, or on your iPad tablet as well as your friend’s Kindle Fire. HTML5 is quickly becoming the new internet standard, and you will be pleased to know that Gyroskope is keeping up the pace with this embeddable Share Player!
