Introduction

Before adding content to your website in the “Add Content” page, you can configure the Content Metadata Fields as per your requirement. Here you can add different Content Forms for Video on Demand, Audio on Demand and Muvi Kart. In the Content Form you can define the content type and add metadata fields which are required and remove the fields which you don’t require. If it is required, you can add new Metadata Fields, re-arrange them and even edit/delete the Metadata Fields which you have created.

 

Adding Content Form

  • To add Content Form, go to “Manage Content-->Manage Metadata” in your CMS.
  • Under Content Forms & Metadata, click on "Add Content Form"
  • In Content Form Name filed, type the name of the content form. (For example, Type Movies, for VOD Single Part content, TV Series, for VOD Multi-Part content, Items/Products, for Muvi Kart content)
  • Select the "Content Type" from the drop-down list. (i.e. Video on Demand, Audio on Demand or Muvi Kart)
  • You will see different Metadata fields for different Content Types.
  • In the "Content Structure" field, you will see the options "Single Part" and "Multi-Part", if you select, Video on Demand.
  • If you select "Multi-Part," then in the "Structure Level" field you will see the options "Child" and "Parent". Select Parent to add the TV show and select "Child" to add episode.

         Note: This is also applicable when you select Audio on Demand content type. However, if you will select "Muvi Kart" in "Content Type" then, you will see different types of Metadata fields.

  • In the "Poster Size" field define the dimension of the poster for the content. This will be default for all content.
  • Under "Meta-Data Fields", there are different fields available for different content types. (i.e. Video on Demand, Audio on Demand and Muvi Kart)
  • You can remove any "Metadata Field" by clicking on the "X" icon on its right-hand side
  • Under "Available Fields", click on the “+” icon on the right-hand side of the Metadata Field to add it to the existing Metadata Fields.
  • To arrange the Metadata Fields in a specific order, simply drag and drop the field to your desired position.
  • Finally, click on “Save
  • When you go to the “Add Content” page (“Manage Content-->Content Library-->Add Content”), you will see the Content Form in the drop-down list which you have configured and saved.

Note: When you add any metadata field to a content form, it will show at the time of adding any new content. New metadata fields will not show in the existing content form. That means, if you will edit an existing content, the new custom metadata field will not be available in the content form.
