Setting Up VOD Content

John Doe John Doe

 

There are two ways to set up VOD content on your channel (note this is separate than the Landing Page).

TV Mode

How it works: When the user lands on the channel, the video you have set will start from the beginning and display controls. 

When to use: TV mode is great for short announcement videos or re-broadcasting a previous stream.

How to set up:

  • Click Channels from the admin tab
  • Click on the edit icon next to the desired channel and scroll down to the Offline section
  • Click TV
  • Click Add Video or Add Playlist 
    • If you already have a video added you’ll click Change Video and if you already have a playlist selected you’ll click Change Playlist
  • Select your video or playlist using the plus from the Library or Add Video/Create Custom Playlist
  • Once the video is select, click Save and Publish to push changes live

Grid Mode:

How it works: When the user lands on the channel, they will see a grid of videos and playlists they can select from. Selecting a video will start the video from the beginning and display controls. There is a X in the bottom right corner of the video to close the video and return to the grid view.

When to use: Grid Mode is great to use if you'd like to display multiple VOD options at once. Display the last broadcast as a stand alone video or put together a playlist of previous broadcasts to highlight and segment content.

How to set up:

  • Click Channels from the admin tab
  • Click on the edit icon next to the desired channel and scroll down to the Offline section
  • Click Grid
  • Click Add Video or Add Playlist
  • Select the video or playlist from the Library using the plus sign
  • Click Save and Publish to push changes live
