thePlatform is the leading provider of online video publishing and management solutions. Media companies rely on mpx as their open, central hub for managing, monetizing, and syndicating billions of online video views each year. Our services provide unmatched versatility for designing and supporting streaming video businesses on PCs, mobile devices, and TV.

Because we “get” the work of publishers and editors, we developed mpx to be the convergence of an efficient user interface model with the most mature, flexible online video management technologies. The mpx console design helps our users more easily manage media by giving them a workflow customized to their needs while minimizing the number of screens they need to use to accomplish their tasks. And with this WordPress plugin, your production team will encounter even fewer screens and require less time to keep your website’s content fresh.
