Welcome to the last Release Note of 2022!
Each quarter, we inform you about the latest product releases, updates and improvements deployed to help you make the most out of your Dailymotion experience.
If you have any question, please reach out to your Content Manager or our Support team, we're here to help you!
Dailymotion & Apps
Discover the new channel profile
The channel page is evolving towards a channel profile where the whole activity of a channel is gathered: uploaded content, likes and playlists are now easily accessible in a single place.
The channel profile is only available in France on the Dailymotion mobile app for now.
Enjoy a smooth watching experience on mobile
The Player on our native apps has been enhanced and now handles:
- better loading time for faster content delivery
- Picture-in-Picture to continue watching videos while browsing on other apps
Your Home and Follow sections have also been improved to deliver a smoother navigation and mobile experience:
- Autoplayed content
- Minimalistic and intuitive Player UI
- Action buttons
Deprecation: iOS 14 and below
In order to provide iOS users with the best experience on their Dailymotion mobile app, we stopped supporting iOS 14 and older versions since December 2022: devices running iOS 14 and older are no longer able to download, update or run the Dailymotion app.
The minimum requirement is now iOS 15.
We recommend iOS users to upgrade their device to the latest iOS version to fully enjoy upcoming updates and features.
Check the list of all supported devices.
Deprecation: Smart TV apps
All Dailymotion Smart TV apps are progressively disappearing from the different online stores in 2023: Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, LG TV, PlayStation, Samsung TV, Xbox (Windows).
If you already downloaded one of these apps, you can continue using it. However, please be aware that we won't offer any more support nor maintain these products, and that no new download of the app is possible.
As an alternative, please consider using Chromecast or AirPlay to continue watching your favorite Dailymotion content on your TV.
Upload more content
Our daily upload limits have been raised, allowing you to add more content on your channel every day.
Check the dedicated article for more details on the new upload limits per user profile.
Get more control over your Player and Ads navigation buttons
Playback and ads controls can now be set separately using our two new settings:
- Player controls (enable_playback_controls)
- Ads controls (enable_ads_controls)
They are replacing the deprecated Player setting "Default controls".
When setting the Ads controls, the Player configuration preview displays a demo ad to help you visualizing the outcome.
Try them from your Player configurator or using the REST API.
Player is pausing when PiP Player is closed
The action of closing the Picture-in-Picture Player on Player embeds is now pausing the main Player instead of continuing playback. This improves the content viewability as well as the user experience.
This behavior cannot be modified, but you can customize other Player settings and parameters.

Developers & API
Pass your custom Ad values with customConfig()
The new customConfig() parameter allows you to easily pass custom ad values to our Ad Stack by adding them as Player parameters in your Player integration method.
Learn how to use the customConfig parameter with each of the Player integration methods.
Optimize your monetization with Auto Skip
The Auto Skip parameter automatically plays the next content after a defined time interval.
Once the defined countdown is up, your Player displays a Keep watching button: the user can choose to continue watching the current content, or skip to the next one.
With this parameter, you can showcase more content and improve your audience engagement as well as your ad opportunities.
Auto skip can be implemented using the 2 following REST API fields:
More information on how to implement the Auto skip setting and its requirements.
Track your video performance with the Tags dimensions in the Reporting API
Following the introduction of the Content Tags data in the Partner Space dashboards, the 2 following dimensions have also been added to the Reporting API:
Learn more about these 2 new dimensions and their compatibility with the metrics.
