Flowplayer is used to playback audio and video content. A free license can be obtained to hide the Flowplayer branding. If you don't already have you license, contact LUNA support and send them the domain name of your LUNA server.

Bug Fixes in LUNA 7.2

  • Fixed a bug whereby the Custom Media Fields weren't displaying in the Viewer's Detail View when the field name contained a space.
  • Removed the Copy Authority button in the Library's Authority Editor.
  • Fixed a bug in the Library's Custom Thumbnail tab search that caused images to link to records instead of adding them as custom thumbnails.
  • Repeating fields are cleared after each "Save" in Group Edit. Now, if a user clicks "Save" twice, the field values that are in field groups are not repeated in the record.

  • Theme selection added to Extended Collection Properties for All Collections context in the Administrator.
  • In the Administrator, Admins can now create accounts and an initial password.
  • No labels
