The Covert Player Review – Like CNN.com

by on January 14, 2013 · 111 comments

covertplayer 180x150 The Covert Player Review   Like CNN.comThe Covert Player is about to take its debut, launching Wednesday, January 16th at 1 am, EST, and in anticipation I’d like to give a review as to its features and benefits.

But first, the question must be asked…why another video player? I already own The Traffic Player and there is already a large number of video players on the market today.

Over the past year there has been an onslaught of new video players that have arisen. All of them are fascinated with adding html overlays on top of the video container, everything from banners to buttons inside the video container. Even more expensive video players being launched, like one being released this week, offer nothing new…but continue to add content inside the video container. Some even attempt to come with a page creator and then charge you $300-$400. Your joking, right?

I have opted to NOT get into the HTML Overlay game for video players. Why? If video helps conversions, why do we want to distract the viewers experience by inserting banners, buttons, etc., inside the video container? For me, I would rather add any Call To Action instructions with Captions and Voice.

This brings me to the Covert Player and why I designed it. Watch the Introductory Video by clicking on the first thumbnail below.

The Covert Player is unlike any other video player on the market. The original idea came to me one day when I was watching some videos on CNN.com’s website. If you click on this CNN.com link you can see on the left sidebar some thumbnails of videos, that when you click on them they open and close…without losing the text. The videos are seamless and fully integrated into the website. This is great for viewers perspective, as well as from a seo perspective since it allows you to put more text on your pages and posts.

Here is a training video on “How To Add Covert Player To Widgets Areas” (ie, sidebars, footer or header widget areas). As you can see, it works like gangbusters. There are many more features and options available. Make sure you video the Covert Player to see all features available to you.

As an incentive to order the Covert Player during launch week I am adding the following Covert Player Bonus. Everyone who orders during launch week will get a complimentary upgrade to the Covert Player, FlowPlayer module, set to be released a week after launch. During the initial launch, Covert Player will have Youtube and Vimeo supports. We are adding Flowplayer 5.2 so that you can play self hosted videos, or  videos hosted on your amazons3.

After launch week, the price for the FlowPlayer module will be more than double. I am also adding a lot of bells and whistles to the FlowPlayer module, so you want to get in early.

Now, to show off more features…here are the TOP 5 Awe Inspiring Videos Of 2012:

Pretty nifty…eh? The Covert Player has the ability to add Top Lists from Youtube at the click of a buttom: Most popular videos, most watched, most discussed, top rated, top favored. You can set it for the “Most Discussed Videos For Today, or for This Week,” for example. This is awesome! You can add your own playlists in membership sites for training/tutorials and use the Embed Pulldown method.

People will naturally ask, why did I develop another video player? Why not just add on more features to your existing Traffic Player? There are reasons for this:

  1. It is practically impossible to have every option available on one script. Each has its strengths.
  2. Traffic Player uses Flowplayer ver 3.2 while Covert Player will be using the newest Flowplayer ver 5.2.

If you have any questions at all, feel free to write a comment and I will try my best to answer. Full features will be revealed on the Salespage at launch. Please, no support questions here. My support desk is here.

Hi Mark, thank your very much for the insight. Actually, I was not sure to need an other video player. But you arouse my curiosity, I think I’m gonna give it a try. Anyway great review, much appreciated.

Have a good day.

Hey Mark, pretty cool plugin. One thing I’d love to see in it though is the ability to pull random videos. For instance, I’d like to set it to my Youtube channel, and then tell it to pull X number of videos at random from it, for displaying in the sidebar. Also, would be nice to display a title over the vid in this case I guess too.

Pretty cool plugin though, seems to work well from the little chance I’ve had to play with it so far.

Hey Mark – can we put the “text link hover” over other text on our blog without showing the title on the video as the anchor text on our blog? Just want to say associate a video with the title “San Francisco Giants Win 2012 World Series” with the term “Giants Win” in the blog instead – if yes – how would we do that? I did not see that could override the title in the short code or pop-up shortcode wizard. Or does this in some way defeat the purpose here.

Thanks

Hi guys – as a follow up to that other video I did on the Covert Video Player – after usnig it for a half day I discovered that I really needed a quick ref or cheat sheet guide to be fat enough and intuitive enough about it… so I put this set of things together to deliver that to you; AND I used this opportunity to try out some of my other video tools.

These are demos really of some of those tools by way of using them.

Hope they are informative. These are a bunch of work to do – but good practice – and tools like Covert Video Player make it worth it – so just enjoy taking a look at some cool tools in action.

1. First up is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_XWOl8PgxA that is the YouTube version of this CNN like video curation player (what I like to call it). Which does a great job (not perfect) to work for mobile. I’m still working on the mobile demo of that

2. http://gibr.co/cnn-like-video-player/ that is another cut at that using that Video Review Master product if you’ve seen it. Showing another way to present.

Do you have another SEO plugin installed? Maybe one of your other plugins unrelated to SEO is causing a conflict error. Try disabling all your other plugins and keep that one active and see if it is still greyed out.

I changed from all in one seo to yoast yesterday, all in one seo is a lot easier to handle, but yoast have some great features! I like them both, but i think i stay by yoast seo plugin.

@ Dan – I am launching new version with everything on April 30th. The fix with having more than one video on one page on top of one another with CNN Style using Flowplayer has been done with new release. Thanks
