Embedding a player with a Magic Link

What is a magic link?

The Magic Link is a unique URL that is generated with one or more variables that can contain an element of personalisation (a first name or a surname for example). This URL points to a media which can be a video or a cover.

Exemple : http://magic.vidata.io/{clef}/?txt_firstname=Caroline&txt_age=17

How to implement it?

  • Anonymising your database:

    There is no need to send your database in one block. You can send the columns of an Excel file completely separate.

  • Marketing automation :

    The magic link allows the process to be automated as there is no need to call on the IT department.

  • Real-time video:

    The videos are not pre-generated beforehand, they will be loaded directly according to the combination of variables chosen.

What is the purpose?

Copy the url of the magic link which can be found in the “MagicLink” tab of the “Distribute” part of the platform.

Insert this URL directly into your html code with the tag: img src=””

Choice of a default video

Allows you to launch a generic video if the combination has not yet been generated. Drag and drop or click on the “Browse” button to choose your generic video.

Choosing a cover for the default video

A cover is automatically generated when a video is uploaded. To change the cover click on the “change” button and choose your image in your browser.

Pre-generating Magic Link functions If a combination has not yet been generated, the generic video you have chosen will start.

If a combination has not yet been generated, the generic video you have chosen will start. However, you can activate the “pre-create video based on the magic link” function. This function will generate the new combination and on a second viewing the video will be played.
