Add new episode video

Navigate to the episode via Programme > Manage Seasons > Manage Episodes > Manage Episode Videos
Click the new video button in the top right of the screen and a form will appear as per the below screenshot:

At this point the Programme, Season and Episode will be pre-completed because you are adding the video to the particular episode.

  • Name - The name of the video is required. You can put any text you like here but it is recommended that you put a more descriptive line here, do not simply put Episode 1 as this will make it harder to identify in the future.
  • MP4 URL - If you want to put a direct link to an MP4, you can in this field. However if you are using a video provider you should leave this field blank.
  • Brightcove ID - If Brightcove is your video provider then you can put the video ID in this box. There is no need to fill out both the MP4 and ID box. If you don't use Brightcove as your video provider, you will not see this field.
  • Aframe ID and Project Name - You will only see these fields if you use Aframe as your video provider. Add your Aframe video ID and Project name into these fields.
  • Public - Tick this option if you want the video to be available to everyone that visits the website. Even those that aren't logged in.
