Spotful, as unique as it is, has been raising many questions about the technology behind this new way of creating fully functional interactive videos. Unfortunately, we cannot share with you in depth information, but we can give you an idea of what our platform represents.
Spotful is a web application build based on Angular JS with a PHP back end. This structural framework allows Spotful to have a dynamic behaviour and include HTML as a template language.
We wanted our platform to be accessible and available to everyone, so we turned towards HTML5 video. HTML5 video is becoming the standard way of showing videos in browser. We appreciated the fact that it supports all video formats and users are able to consume videos from everywhere, as long as they have an internet connection.
Our platform uses API’s from Youtube, Vimeo and several social media apps. We wanted to keep the user’s experience consistent with major video platforms and bring all your favourite applications together into one place.
With these API’s all the information is transmitted to the source web application, therefore content creators receive the same PPC, views and monetization as they would normally receive.
