An Overview of the Cleeng Video Commerce Modules
Cleeng is a video ecommerce platform that allows you to sell videos online. Cleeng comes with a wide range of advanced features for managing your users, entitlements and accepting payments. It should be noted that Cleeng does not stream videos itself. You need to have an online video platform (OVP) where you can upload your videos, or connect your live stream. Once you have chosen your OVP you can configure or integrate further with Cleeng. The OVP will deliver the actual video streams to your viewers, while Cleeng takes care of all the ecommerce features like identity management, entitlements, etc.
There are two ways that you can interact with Cleeng: via the Cleeng Dashboard (UI) or the API.
Via the Cleeng Dashboard you can setup a live pay-per-view event (Cleeng Live!) or configure on-demand videos (Cleeng Play). Meaning that within minutes you can start selling your live and on demand videos by embedding them on your website. Alternatively with Cleeng Live! or Cleeng Play - you can send your visitors to the automatically generated hosted pages from where they can get access the videos as well. Via the same Dashboard you can add a subscription on top of it, manage your videos, track your sales or analyze your customer base.
The Cleeng API on the other hand allows you to protect videos automatically and integrate Cleeng deeply into your applications so the user experience is fully integrated. This technical documentation guides you on how to use the Cleeng API for the different use cases in the most efficient way.
Cleeng has many different commerce modules that you can integrate via the API; each has a rich amount of features and functionalities. The instructions on these pages will explain per module the main options and considerations and should help you optimize your Cleeng video commerce setup.
