Migrating to Player V3

You can migrate from your legacy players to the Ooyala player.

Migrating from your legacy player to the current Ooyala Player V3 can be fairly straightforward. This topic describes how to migrate your existing legacy player embed to the Ooyala Player V3 embed and event model. The new Ooyala Player was designed to have minimal impact on your existing set up.  You can migrate your Flash player and custom modules in a fairly direct manner.

Note:You can cut and paste your embed code from Backlot as you have done with prior players. If you use existing embed code callbacks and want to migrate to HTML5, you need to switch to using the message bus. Callbacks are not supported for the new embed style. They will continue to work for the Flash Player but not HTML5 Player.

Migrating from Embed Code Callbacks

If you use existing embed code callbacks and want to migrate to HTML5, you must switch to using the OnCreate embedded parameter. In Player V3,Callbacks are not invoked directly on the new embed style; instead, use the OnCreate parameter to specify the name of a callback function invoked when a player is created.
