In your library everything that is created in your account will be found: Videos, images, playlists, players, audio, subtitles, and live-streams. In this article, we will focus on videos since this is the most widespread usage of Streamio! Further down you’ll find short introductions to other parts.
In the tab “Videos” all videos that have been uploaded to your account will be found. All management of the videos after the upload is done here!
By choosing Videos you will be presented with an overview of the movies in the account – further down on the page you can choose how many will be shown simultaneously. Note that showing many videos at the same time makes Streamio slower than only a few, especially on slow connections!
In the top section you’ll find a drop-down where you can choose different ways of sorting the content: By Most Recent, Oldest, Alphabetical, Most Viewed, Largest, Smallest, or by the user that uploaded the video. These are pretty self-explanatory but quite useful as the account fills up with lots of videos!
To the right of the sorting, you can filter by tag. If you tag all videos that are uploaded that can be used in several ways, this is one. Example of video categories used: “Ad”, “Corporate presentation”, “Shareholders meeting”, ” City Council meeting” and so on. With well-selected tags, you could easily get a list of just the movies needed (you can also use tags to automatically populate playlist!)
In the actual list of videos, you’ll see a thumbnail picture from the video. Title and description of the video. The length of the video (superimposed on the thumbnail) and size (total usage on disk for all created versions). You can also see the tags the film has been given (as blue buttons that could be clicked in order to quickly show all videos in that category). Finally, you can see the creator and date as well as the historical number of views for the video!
In the right corner of every video in the Library overview, there is a grey checkbox. When clicked the box will be greyed and the video is chosen. This could be used to quickly delete several movies or to copy movies to another account you have access to. The most common usage for this is when a company or organization has one internal account with security to limit viewers to the organization and one Streamio account for public videos for the web page, social media, and mail.
Edit video – just click one of the videos
When a video is selected in the library the actual video page is opened. We will focus on the upper half of this page in this articles, the lower is about publishing the video and that is described in another article. Also, this is the “Quickstart” we will not cover the “Advanced settings” here!
Information – title, description, and tags
Additional tabs overview
These are the remaining tabs under Library – just a quick overview.
This is where you’ll find all Playlists of videos that could be used in Archive Players.
This is where you’ll find all Video Players you can use to publish your videos and where you can create/customize your own players, both regular players, and our Archive player.
If you use Streamio for audio clips, podcasts or similar all uploaded audio is available under this tab.
Subtitles (not enabled by default)
Here is where subtitles are uploaded and stored. This is not enabled by default, but can be enabled under “Account settings” – “General”.
Live! (not enabled by default)
This is where you configure and start live-streams, as well as handle recording of live streams that are automatically uploaded to your Video Library when the event is over and handled as any regular video upload done manually. Live-streaming is in Beta right now – contact Streamio support if you want to join the beta-testing).
To access a specific section, just click on the respective tabs on the upper left side (Videos, Images, Playlists, Players, Audio, Subtitles, Live!).
