rtMedia Monthly Update- January 2017

Our first update of the not-so-new year brings enhancements to two Premium addons and new features to the Transcoder encoding service.

We have made our Photo Tagging addon’s search more powerful with this update. The search will now display suggestions based on even partial matches of username or name fields, which makes tagging much more intuitive.

This update to our Membership addon addresses some visual issues and adds a filter to change the “rtMedia Membership Plan” text to suit your website:
