Adding Videos to a Channel from the DEVOS Media Section of the Admin Portal

Until a video is added to a channel, it is considered "unpublished". If the video is unpublished, that means the only way a person can find and watch the video is if they are provided the link to the video page to view it. Once the video has been published to a channel, viewers can find it by navigating to the channel it is published to or searching for the video in the DEVOS search form. Individual videos can be added to one or more channels when they are created or edited on the Advanced tab in Media section on the DEVOS Admin Portal, or multiple videos can be added to a channel in the Manage Channels section of the DEVOS Admin Portal. This article will explain how to add videos from the Manage VOD section.
Note: Only users authorized to add videos to a specific channel can perform this task. For a user to be authorized to add a video to a channel, one of the following must be true:
  1. The user must own the channel that videos are to be added to, or
  2. The user must be a member of a Team Share that owns the channel, or
  3. The user must be a member of a DEVOS Security Group that has been set in the channel settings as a group of users with rights to add or remove videos from that channel.
Follow these steps to add videos to one or more channels:
  1. Select either Video On-Demand, Encoders, or Live Streams under Media in the Admin Portal depending on the type of video you wish to add.

  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes (or Upload, if it's a new video on-demand being uploaded).
