Before mapping video to content, first, you need to add content to the Content Library. The content consists of metadata including content title, genre, language, censor rating, story/description, cast & crew information, poster, etc. Once the content is added, it will be shown on the front-end to the users. The users can search the content, not the video. However, the users can not watch the video unless you add or map a video to it. Before mapping video to it, you need to upload the video to the Video Libray. Then, you need to map the video to the content. When your video is mapped to your content, your subscribers can view the video by clicking on the content in your website/app.
Note: When you upload a video to the Video Library, it will not be automatically displayed on the front-end to the users unless you map it to any content.
How to Map Video to Content
You can map any particular video in your video library to a specific content easily through your Muvi CMS.
- Go to "Manage Content" --> "Content Library" in your CMS to see the list of your added contents.
- Please check at right side of your content and click on “Upload Video” (See Below Screenshot)
Once you click on “Upload Video” a page will open with 3 options. 1. “Choose from Library” 2.“Upload” 3. "Embed From 3rd Party".
- If you select the option “Choose from Library,” then move your cursor on a particular video stored in your library that you wish to map with a specific content and click on “Select Video”. ( There are various filtering options available in the "Video Library" like the Search Bar (Type the Name of the Video), Video Duration, File Size, etc. You can use one of these filtering options to find a particular video that you want to map with your content).
- If you choose "Upload" then there are various options available to upload your videos. For example, you can upload from your Computer, upload using FTP server, upload using Dropbox or upload using S3 Sync. Once your video is uploaded by using one of these options then it will be automatically mapped to your content.
- If you choose "Embed From 3rd Party", then you can map video from YouTube, Vimeo or other Online Video Platform (OVP) to your content.
View Encoding Status
- Once you select your video it will automatically start encoding.
- You can view the encoding status of the video on the right-hand side of the content. It will show how much time is left for the encoding process to complete. (See Below Screenshot)
- When the encoding is finished the video will be mapped to the content.
- You will get an email notification once your video is get encoded and available for viewing.
- In case of UGC content (After getting the approval), and content which is uploaded by using Dropbox, Server to Server transfer will be in the queue before encoding.
- When the video is mapped to the content you will see the video name under "Video" column and see the option "Change Video" instead of "Upload Video".
- You can click on“Preview Content” on the right hand side of your content to see the preview of the video (See below screenshot).
Once the encoding is finished, you can view the video on the front-end. Click on Play Now button to play the content.
