thePlatform Logo

Platformic is proud to announce a unique partnership with thePlatform which leverages the strengths of their Media Publishing System (MPS) and the Platformic Online Web Development Environment.  (OWDE).

thePlatform™ is the leading online video management and publishing company. Media companies rely on thePlatform as their open, central hub for managing, monetizing, and syndicating billions of video views annually. thePlatform's services provide unmatched versatility for designing and supporting video businesses on PCs, mobile, and TV.


Platformic's integration with thePlatform helps content managers bypass the time and effort of using two interfaces to manage a single web property. With the combination of Platformic and thePlatform, content managers and content owners use the following workflow:

  • Upload videos to thePlatform's mps by opening their Platformic powered website in administrative mode
  • By clicking Platformic's add video icon in thePlatform player. Video files can be drag-n-dropped from the desktop directly onto the page where the player resides.
  • Upon upload, the video is published to thePlatform's media publishing system (mps) and can be triggered for release through the Platformic interface.
  • Users provide a headline and summary and select a thumbnail once the video has been uploaded, and corresponding entries and additions will be reflected in thePlatform mps.
  • Videos are then added to one or more categories that are present in thePlatform mps.
  • Categories can be added, edited or deleted through Platformic's interface, and the changes will be reflected in both the Platformic CMS and thePlatform mps.
  • Uploaded videos are referenced in the Platformic CMS and used anywhere on a website or network of sites.
  • Individual players, can be resized by the Platformic CMS to fit into any content area on the website.
  • Using Platformic's embedded content feature, content editors can append a video to a story or blog and place them in a sidebar adjacent to any content element, eliminating the need to copy embed code into the body of the text-based content.
  • Video content is searchable through Platformic's Media Library, and web site visitors can use either Platformic's search feature or thePlatform's player search feature.

Please contact Platformic for more information about how this integration can best serve you.
