OptinPlayer Updates List

About New Revisions and Upgrading OptinPlayer

New revisions are released frequently and are available in your account with the revision number and a link to this page to see what's new. Major updates will be announced to email subscribers and all updates announced in the forum.

To see which version you are using right-click on the video - you will see it in the context menu.

Upgrading is simple, just download the new OptinPlayer package, unzip it and upload it. We recommend strongly however that you first rename the existing OptinPlayer folder on your server to something like "optinplayer_previous". Then go ahead and test your projects with the new version. Always clear the browser cache before testing. Any problems just submit a support ticket at the link above.
