Default Anime-Planet.com partners with Viki to provide global anime video integration

We have a new, exciting announcement to share!

After recently launching full Crunchyroll integration and Hulu integration, we're excited to announce our next big partnership with Viki, a global TV site that features crowd sourced subtitles for anime and Korean drama in dozens of languages! Viki videos are available in many countries, not just the USA, so our worldwide users will be able to enjoy this release as well.

First up, check out our official press release:



If you're not already familiar with our video integrations, here's what you can expect!

Feature highlights

WATCH VIDEOS DIRECTLY FROM ANIME ENTRIES:
Including videos for more obscure titles we split up separately, such as the Saki specials





OPT IN TO 'AUTO UPDATE'
and we'll update your anime list for you when you watch a video on Anime-Planet. When you watch the last episode of a series, your status will change to 'watched', as well!




WATCH ANIME DIRECTLY FROM THE RECOMMENDATIONS
and filter the recommendations to only show you titles with videos




FILTER ANIME BY VIDEOS
(with easy 'browse all videos' button on the homepage)
coming soon: a 'videos' homepage for easier browsing and access




AUTO SHARE VIDEO UPDATES
Once you've linked your twitter or facebook accounts in your profile, you'll can opt in to auto share when you watch videos on the site.

WHAT NEW VIDEOS CAN I WATCH?
Viki brings the following titles to Anime-Planet on launch:

Adachigahara

Q&A

Is it free?
All Viki content on Anime-Planet is free to watch.

What about those ads in the Viki videos?
The ads in Viki videos are owned by Viki, Anime-Planet doesn't receive a stipend or any kickback from the ads.

How about region locking?
Viki videos are available in many countries! Like with any videos on the site, we only show you videos you're able to see based on your location.

Can I link my Anime-Planet account with my Viki account?
Currently no, but we're looking into ways to potentially do this.

When does my list auto-update when I watch a video?
When the page that contains the Viki video loads, your list updates.

What are the auto updating caveats?
  • We'll never change your status from 'watched' back to 'watching'. You'll need to go manually change your status to something else if you want us to increment your episode count when watching videos.
  • If you don't have the series in your list yet, or have it in your list as any status other than 'watched' or 'watching', we'll first change your status to 'watching'.
  • We'll never subtract episodes from your list - only add. For example, if you watch Naruto episodes 1-10 on Anime-Planet and then go back and watch episode 4 again, you'll see a feed update that you watched episode 4 on Anime-Planet, but your episode count will not go back to 4; it will stay at 10.

This is a V1 feature and we're always up for hearing feedback about how to improve it.

How do videos show up in my feed?
Any time you watch a video, you'll see a new update in your feed. If you've turned on auto update, you won't see separate status updates when you watch a video. So if you watch Rose of Versailles episode 1, you'll see one feed update for 'watching Rose of Versailles episode 1 on Anime-Planet', and will NOT see a duplicated 'Watching Rose of Versailles at 1/x episodes' feed update.

I love this feature! How can I show my support for Anime-Planet?
The #1 thing you can do is to help spread the word about videos on Anime-Planet to everyone you know - whether on your anime blog, your website, on twitter/facebook, or just to your friends who love anime! Even if you know people who love anime and don't currently use the site, we'd love if you could tell others what you love about the video feature so they'll come try it out too.

Additionally, donating to the site helps directly support the servers and new features like this. And for our earlier Crunchyroll integration, signing up for a free trial and then becoming premium through any of our Crunchyroll links on Anime-Planet both directly supports the industry and helps Anime-Planet stay afloat so we can cover the pricy server costs and other expenses it takes to keep a site like this running.

Somehow I get the feeling you're not going to stop until you've partnered with every legal streaming site in existance. :p
