Introduction

By enabling Muvi’s Recommendation Engine (Alie) you can show recommended video content to your users in your store. Your users will be automatically suggested to content which they prefer to watch based on their viewing preference. For example, if a user only prefers to watch action movies, then he/she will be recommended to all the action movies in your store. Once you enable this feature in the CMS your users will view the recommended content in the featured section of the homepage of your store when they login.

Note:

  • Currently, this feature is available for Muvi Standard and above subscribers.
  • To get the recommendation from Alie, you must have atleast 20 content added to your store and there should be at least 100 cumulative views of the content.
