Video

We have just released an important expansion to our existing services - full video support with its own player, selling settings, protection and viewing capabilities and many more.

The video capability is available to all subscribers, and its only limitation is the maximum file size currently at 10 GB. Using our Basic Uploader or FTP, you can upload almost any video file, play it directly on the site, and sell it using a business model of your choice.

Our video player will by default automatically use the best quality for your browser window. However, you can easily choose the quality that suits you.

As an owner, you can limit the resolution of your videos and/or allow only the first 30 seconds to play. You can guard the access to the original video with a password and/or offer it for sale.

Our integrated player plays videos up to HDTV resolution, but originals with bigger resolution are downloadable or can be sold. This makes our service unique and shows how much we care to store your original data.

Photographers can now use three album pricing methods : for  Photos, for Photos and Videos, and for Videos. This makes it possible to combine photos and videos in a single album and still differentiate the pricing for various orders.

To help you keep track of your visitors, you can see the video views in your traffic  statistics.

Be ready for more,

your BlueMelon team

New Limits for Free Accounts

We have great news for everyone who uses or is planning on using our free account. The storage capacity has just been doubled to 2 GB and so was the maximum number of photos to 2000. Also, useful especially for clients who use their accounts for ordering downloads, we have extended the time required to log in before the account expires to one year.

If there was ever a time to try our services, it is surely now.

Download Links in Order Details

We are constantly trying to improve the delivery of the download links to your clients while providing the highest security for your photographs.

We often receive complaints about emails arriving late or not being delivered for a number of reasons that are outside of our reach.

With our recent update, your clients can receive the download links not only by email, but they can access them through their free account too. Clients, who are not registered, can easily create an account right during the checkout. Of course, registration is voluntary.

Furthermore, the free account allows your clients to display detailed information on all their orders and helps us to identify new ways to improve our services.
