This topic contains frequently asked questions about the Wordpress-Brightcove Connector.

Can I run the plugin on a WordPress install that isn't publicly accessible?

Yes, it will work whether it is public or not however features requiring a call-back to your site such as status updates, uploading videos, etc will be unavailable.

 Are there any filters for plugin/theme developers? 

brightcove_account_actions = [edit, delete]; // What actions are available when manipulating a Brightcove source.

Will this work on multisite?

Yes it will.

Can I use more than one Brightcove account?

Yes, you can add sources from many Brightcove accounts if you want.

How does sync work?

The plugin simply pulls information directly from the Brightcove API for display and does not sync videos locally.

How can I increase Maximum upload file size?

Maximum file size is determined by your webserver and PHP configuration. You need to set the value of upload_max_filesize and post_max_size in your php.ini. php_ini_loaded_file() can help you find where your PHP.ini is located.

How do I enable change tracking so I can see who updated a video and when they did it?

Create a custom field of type 'text' with an internal name of '_change_history'. Whenever a video is updated, the username and current time will be added to a list of changes recorded in this field.
