New Partner Space design
We've updated your Partner Space interface with a new design to ease your navigation.
The Organization and Notification spaces are now easier to find and we will continue to iterate on this new menu to offer you an improved mobile navigation in the coming months.
Create your Players from your Partner Space
Thanks to the different configurations created, you will be able to modify several players integrated on your website just through a few clicks on your Partner Space.
You can also preview your player configuration on a sample page generated by Dailymotion, and share this configuration with your team through a direct link.
To learn how to create and manage your players, please read our dedicated guide.
Manage your watermark and Twitter signature from your Channel settings
- The Brand section has been removed from the Embed menu
- The Player customization (accent colors, video information) can be managed on the Player management section.
- Watermark and Twitter signature can be managed directly on the Channel section.
New homefeed on our mobile app
The homefeed has been updated, and you can now personalize it with your own selection of categories and interests.
All you have to do is to follow our new onboarding flow, select some interests and enjoy your new homefeed.
Please note that this feature is only available in France for the moment, and will be progressively available everywhere in the coming months.

New Embed Method
We've released a new embed method to facilitate the player integration on your properties. We have considerably optimized the monetization, viewability, and performance of our Player.
This new embed method will also allow you to configure a Picture-in-Picture on your properties and configure different players with their own configuration based on your needs.
You can get more information about our new embed method on our integration guide, or on our developer portal.
Customize sharing links in your embedded players
By default, the sharing button will redirect your audience on Dailymotion.com. If you activate this option, the share button will copy the link where the player has been embedded.
This option can be activated directly on your Player embed settings. Learn more here
Seek through double click on desktop
You can now use this feature on desktop too, by double clicking on your content with your trackpad or your mouse.
Developers and API
Audience identification for your API uploads
To fullfill with our legal obligations, the content uploaded on Dailymotion requires a proper audience identification to protect young audiences personal information and ensure they are accessing content appropriate to them.
For a few months now, this identification became mandatory for every new video uploaded through the Partner Space. In the coming weeks, this content identification will also become mandatory on videos uploaded through the API.
We invite you to edit your API workflows as soon as possible to comply with this new policy. To help you, we've created new documentations to easily update your flow :
- The developer upload guide has been updated with a new section explaining you how to classify your content with the is_created_for_kids parameter
- You don't know which classification should be applied to your video catalog ? Check how to determine the audience of your videos and channels.
New Player documentation
To guide you in your player integration and player migration, we've deployed a major update of our Player documentation.
You can now find a complete guide on our new embed methods, with additional code samples and examples for your integrations, and an easier navigation.
Code samples for your player embeds with our Codepen collection
To ease your player integration and customization, we've created a Codepen collection listing several code samples and tweaks based on your frequently asked questions and suggestions.
Feel free to contact us if you have questions about it or if you need new code samples.
