Introduction

Muvi’s Video Card feature allows you to add Poll and/or External links to your video content. This makes your videos interactive by letting the viewers participate in a multiple-choice poll or check out more information (a web page, another video) etc. using an external link. Video card feature is accessible to the users via the player. You can add video cards to single-part video, multi-part child video and to both DRM and Non-DRM video content. The response of the users (link clicks and poll) will be stored in the CMS and can be viewed in the Video Card analytics.

 

How to Enable Video Card

Before creating the Video Cards, first, you need to enable this feature in the CMS. You can enable it under “Player”.

  • Click on “Player” in the CMS.
  • Under Player, select “Enable Video Cards”. The Video Card feature will be enabled.

 

 

How to Add Video Card

Video card can be added to any content in the Content Library (i.e. Single part & Multi-part Child)

  • Navigate to “Manage Content-->” Content Library” in the CMS.
  • On the extreme right-hand side of a content, click on “Manage Video Cards”.
  • To add a video card, you need to click on “Add Card”.

There are 2 types of Video Cards you can add to the content.

  • External Link: Image with title that redirects to a specific link (URL) when clicked on.
  • Poll: Create questions with multiple choice type answers.

 Note: You can add both External Link and Poll to the same content.

 

  • Click on “Add Card”, under “Manage Cards” in the CMS.
  • In “Card Type”, select “External Link” from the drop-down.
  • In the “Visible Duration” field, you need to mention the “Start Time”(after how many hours/minutes/seconds the link will appear) and “End Time”(after how many hours/minutes/seconds the link will disappear).
  • In the “Title” field (mandatory), mention the title of the link.
  • Type a description about the link in the “Description” field.
  • In the “Redirect URL” field, type the URL of the page where you want your users to visit.
  • Click on “Upload Image” to upload an image for the link.
  • To complete the process, click on “Save”.

While watching the video, the users will see the “i” icon on the top right-hand corner of the Player. When they click on the icon, they will see the External Link image and description. When they click on the link, they will be redirect to the page which you want them to visit. The users’ response can be viewed from the Video Card analytics.

 

 

How to Add Poll

By adding Poll cards, you can turn a video into an even more effective tool for gathering customer and viewer feedback. You can create a poll with multiple choice questions and allow the users to answer the questions in the video itself. When users click on the poll while watching the video, they can select the answer of the question from the multiple-choice answers.  The answers will be stored in the CMS. You can view it in the Video Card Analytics.

  • Click on “Add Card”, under “Manage Cards” in the CMS.
  • In “Card Type”, select “Poll” from the drop-down.
  • In the “Visible Duration” field, you need to mention the “Start Time”(after how many hours/minutes/seconds the poll will appear) and “End Time”(after how many hours/minutes/seconds the link will disappear).
  • Type your poll question in the “Question” field.
  • Type answer options. You can add multiple answers for the question. For example, in “Option – 1”, type one answer, in “Option – 2 “type another and so on. To add more options, click on the “+” icon.
  • To complete the process, click on “Save”.

While watching the video, the users will see the “i” icon on the top right-hand corner of the Player. When they click on the icon, they will see the Poll questions and answers. When they select the answer, it will be saved in the CMS and can be viewed in Video Card analytics.
