Brightcove Video Player Integration

Interested in integrating IntenseDebate with your Brigthcove video player? General info here –

Thanks to our partnership with Brightcove you can add IntenseDebate comments to any Brightcove video on your site. Below are specific implementation instructions.

IntenseDebate can be integrated with any CMS using our Generic Install. You can get started here – .

Our Generic Install gives you access to our code. ID is two JavaScript code snippets: one for the actual comment section and one for comment links that you can place on the index page of your site (which will bring up the comment sections).

Once you create an account you will have access to these code snippets. Here is an example of what our code looks like for the comment section:

var idcomments_acct = ‘YOUR ACCOUNT VALUE THAT WE ASSIGN’;
var idcomments_post_id;
var idcomments_post_url;

In that code there are several values that are set which will tie the comment section to your account along with the correct comments on for your posts. The first is the var idcomments_acct. This is your IntenseDebate blog account number, which we assign when you create your account. This is automatically included in the code.

The next two are the var idcomments_post_id and var idcomments_post_url. The best way to integrate is to add the Brigthcove video id in as the var idcomments_post_id. The post_id is just the unique identifier that is assigned by your CMS for each post – or for each Brightcove video in this case. You would enter the post_id in the code snippet and that will ensure that the comments are tied to the particular post. You can also set the post_url value as well to further ensure that everything works properly.
