A new background removal API is available in limited release for our Enterprise customers. Reach out to your Account Manager if you would like to test this new feature.
Support for Digital Ocean, Linode, and Wasabi
You can now create Sources with three new S3-compatible source types: Digital Ocean, Linode, and Wasabi. S3-compatible Source types have the advantage of allowing you to keep your assets private and only permitting access via imgix. Read the documentation for Source creation or migrate an existing Web Folder Source.
Thumbnails for Video
Easily create thumbnails, GIFs, or storyboards from videos processed via the imgix video rendering API. Read more about it and see example usage here.
New ix-player Video Player
We listened to your feedback and re-architected our video player to split the core of the player and the player itself into two packages.
ix-video is now a slimmed-down wrapper on top of the built-in <video> element with HLS support and a much smaller download size.
ix-player has all of the bells and whistles of a fully-featured video player, including built-in support for our new thumbnail, GIF preview, and storyboard feature set.
