Set Up VOD Content

There are three main ways to utilize VOD content on Maestro: scheduling it to appear as live, adding it to a Landing Page, and adding it to a Channel.

Below is a walkthrough on the third option: adding VOD content to your Channel.

 

Add VOD in TV Mode (Single Video Available for Viewing):

When the user lands on the channel, the video you have set will start from the beginning with Player Controls visible. TV mode is great for trailers, announcements, or allowing viewers to watch a past livestream.

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 Video" section
  • Click "TV"
  • Click "Add Video" or "Add Playlist" 
    • If a Video is already selected, click "Change Video"; if a Playlist is selected 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

Add VOD as a Grid (Multiple Videos Available for Viewing):

In Grid Mode, the user 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.

Grid Mode is perfect if you'd like to display multiple VOD options in one place. You might include several past streams, highlights of your events, or other exciting 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 '+' sign
  • Click SAVE and PUBLISH to push changes live
