License key is the first parameter that you should add to your Video Uploader embedding script. There are two types of license keys: trial and full. This topic describes them in detail.
Trial license key is intended for evaluating Video Uploader on any domain
(not only on
localhost). It is not associated with any domain name and allows uploading
files to any Web site. It also does not constrain the functionality of Video Uploader
but puts the following limitations on its usage:
Every time you send files to a server you get the following message:
This is a trial version. It can be used in evaluation process only.
You can use Video Uploader with a trial license key during the 60 days evaluation period only.
The evaluation version of Video Uploader neither puts any limitations on the number of files that can be uploaded nor constrains its functionality anyhow else. So if the evaluation version does not work properly, we highly encourage you to create support case and tell us about the problem.
To request trial license key you should use Video Uploader Evaluation License Keys Request tool which is distributed with the product. To launch this tool click the Start button, point to All Programs, and then point to Aurigma. Point to Video Uploader 1.0 and click Video Uploader Evaluation License Keys Request.
Then enter your E-mail and Password you are registered on Aurigma with and click Request.
After you request trial license keys they are automatically registered in all sample applications installed along with Video Uploader. Then you can move these samples to your Web server. If, however, you need to apply these keys to another application just paste them to this application as it is described in the Registering License Key section.
If you cannot obtain trial license keys using Video Uploader Evaluation License Keys Request tool for some reason you can do it online (http://www.aurigma.com/account/licenses).
Full license key is a code associated with the domain name or IP address of the website where Video Uploader will be used (speaking more precisely - the address of the server where you will host the control and submit files to). If the full license key matches the address you have provided us with, Video Uploader works as a full version, otherwise it will not work at all. It will show the following message every time you start the upload:
No valid license key for current DNS/IP address specified. If you see this message please contact
There are two licensing options available for Video Uploader:
Allows using Video Uploader at the single domain name you specified during activation.
License key is generated for a full-qualified domain name, i.e. it works neither with other domains associated
with the same site nor with any subdomains of this domain. The only exception is the
In other words, if you generate a license key for the
yoursite.com domain, it will
not be valid for
subdomain.yoursite.com, but will be valid
You can also specify an IP address, but in this case users need to type this address in the navigation bar of their browser.
Allows using Video Uploader with all domains associated with a specific IP address specified during activation.
If you need to host Video Uploader on one domain or IP address and upload videos to another you should set full license keys for each one. To obtain additional license keys contact us at email@example.com. The instructions on how to specify two or more license keys are described in the Registering License Key section of this topic.
To register license key just specify it as a value of the LicenseKey property. Here is how you can do that (note that if you have several keys, they should be separated with semi-colons):
