In your library, you will find everything created in your account: Videos, images, playlists, players, audio, subtitles, and live streams. This article will focus on managing online videos since this is the most common 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 select how many will be shown simultaneously. Note that showing many videos simultaneously makes Streamio slower than only a few videos, 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 uploaded videos, you can use this function in several ways; this is one. Examples of video categories used: “Ad”, “Corporate presentation”, “Shareholders meeting”, ” City Council meeting”, and so on. You could quickly get a list of just the movies needed (you can also use tags to populate the playlist automatically!)
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 you could click 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 delete several videos quickly or to copy videos to another account. The most common usage 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.
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 article. The lower is about publishing the video, which is described in another article. Also, this is the “Quickstart” we will not cover the “Advanced settings” here!
These are the remaining tabs under library – just a quick overview.
This is where you’ll find all Playlists of videos that you could use 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.
All uploaded audio is available under this tab if you use Streamio for audio clips, podcasts, or similar.
Here is where subtitles are uploaded and stored. This is not enabled by default but can be enabled under “Account settings” – “General”.
This is where you configure and start live streams and handle recordings of live streams that are automatically uploaded to your Video Library when the event is over and managed 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, click on the respective tabs on the upper left side (Videos, Images, Playlists, Players, Audio, Subtitles, Live!).
