Introduction

As a Content Partner, you can add Single Part Video (e.g., movies, video clips) content in the Content Partner Portal (if the admin has enabled this content option in the Muvi One CMS). First, you have to select the “VOD Single Part” form from the content forms drop-down. Then, you need to create the content by adding the content metadata (e.g., content title, description, category, cast and crew, etc.) and after adding the content you can map a video file to the content.

 

How to Add Content

  • To add VOD-Single Part content, navigate to “Manage Content” -->” Content Library” in the CMS.
  • On the “Content Library” page you can see the list of all your content that is already added. Click on the “Add Content” button to add new content.
  • When the Add Content page opens, on the right-hand side of the Content Formsfield, select “VOD Single Part Form” from the drop-down list
  • In the Content Name field, type the name of the content.
  • Content "Permalink" will be automatically generated. (You can also edit the permalink)
  • Select the Release/Record date of the content from the calendar.
  • Type the Genre of the particular content; for example, Action, Horror, Comedy, etc. You can select multiple genres by holding your CTRL key down.
  • In the Language field, type the language of the content (English, Chinese, Italian, etc.)
  • Select the Censor Ratings of the content. (A, U/A, U, etc.)
  • In the Story/Description field describe the story briefly if it’s a movie or for other kinds of Single Part Long Form content you can write the description accordingly.
  • Select the Content category from the drop-down list. (Such as Movies, Sporting Events, documentaries, etc.) Here you can select multiple categories for the same content.
  • Add "Search Tags" followed by "#" in the corresponding field. (Search tags will help users find the content easily by typing the tags in the search bar. You can use words related to the content as search tags)

Note: First add "#" to enter search tags in the text field. Press "Enter" key or "," comma (e.g. #action, #horror). You can add a maximum of 5 search tags to content.

  • Select the option "Publish Later" if you want your content to be live at a specific time (Please note you need to calculate your local time to the UTC time and set it accordingly as we support UTC time zone only)
  1. Select the "Publish Start Date" and "Publish Start Time" to publish the content on a specific date and time. (You can select the current date and time, or you can select the future date only)

  3. Select the "Publish End Date" and "Publish End Time" if you want to hide the content from your store after a specific date and time. Your users will not be able to view/search the content after the specific date and time are over.

If you select only the "Publish Start Time" then the content will be published on the specific date and time and will remain in your store.
