RebelMouse’s upLynk Video Integration

RebelMouse’s upLynk Video Integration

RebelMouse has partnered with Verizon Media on a new video integration. Verizon has a streaming platform called upLynk which THEOplayer uses as part of its video playback offering. THEOplayer allows users to play videos in different formats by integrating with different partners.

On RebelMouse, you can now search through upLynk's library for videos to feature on your site.


This integration works similarly to our Add Media Bar search function. Here's a screencast of the workflow:

The upLynk integration is not available out of the box by default. If you're interested in implementing it on your site, contact your account manager today and provide them with details about your upLynk account, including:

upLynk User ID: Located in Settings → User Settings

upLynk API Key: Located in Settings → Integration Keys

upLynk Ad Configuration Name: Located in Settings → Ad Server

THEOplayer Library Location: To locate this, navigate to your THEOplayer Dashboard and locate the CDN Library Location of the SDK.

Currently, our upLynk integration only supports pre-roll ads. Teaser images for videos are managed in upLynk's Poster Image field:

Verizon also provides embed codes for videos that you can use without THEOplayer.

For more information on this integration, email support@rebelmouse.com or talk to your account manager today.

In 2023, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2023 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
