Ooyala Flex Media Platform 7.3.2 Release Notes 2019-03-22

Ooyala is excited to present the release of Ooyala Flex Media Platform 7.3.2. This release of Ooyala Flex Media Platform (OFMP) provides the new features, enhancements, fixes, and other changes listed below.

New Features and Enhancements



  • Temporal Search

    Search can now return instances of results that include markers within the asset. So, for example, a search against sport content can return matched events, such as goals, so such events are effectively treated as search results.

  • Subtitle Search

    Search can now parse and index text present in subtitles - when you search for a phrase used in the subtitles, the search returns the asset(s) where this phrase is used.

    Note: Subtitle text takes lower priority in search results than other fields, such as title.

General / Operational

  • Flex Authentication Service: Flex Login Application integrated with Flex Enterprise

    The Flex Login Application now works with Flex Enterprise.

    Note: We have deprecated the /fmplogin path. To log into OFMP, use the URL www.host.com/fmp/index, which displays the login page. Once the system validates your login credentials, it logs you into OFMP.
    Note: OFMP uses the Login Application to challenge user credentials. If both OFMP and the Ooyala Flex Enterprise UI must use the Login Application, then the KV flex/shared/flex-enterprise/featureToggles/samlEnabled must be set to true.
