Here's a summary of the metadata uStudio can track on your video and how you can tailor this metadata to your needs.
From the All Videos gallery view in your studio, click the "gear" icon that overlays any video's thumbnail to get to the "Edit Video" screen. This is where that video record's metadata can be managed. (Alternatively, you can click the checkbox next to the name of a video in the gallery, then click the "Edit Info" button in the bottom action strip.)
The URL of the Edit Video screen will look like this:
Required Metadata Fields:
- Title - Often visible to viewers, depending on the platform/player/playlist published to.
- Category - Required by YouTube and not customizable. Many customers use Business as the default category and add custom metadata for company-specific categories.
Standard Metadata Fields:
- Description - Often visible to viewers. Description appears by default on uStudio VideoSites and in YouTube.
- Keywords - Typically used to help viewers find your videos, or in some cases to automatically recommend videos to viewers.
- Video Web Page - Required only for social sites that promote video content (specify the page to which these social networks should drive traffic).
- Thumbnail - The still image that serves as the "face" of your video.
- Notes - These are always internal to your video administration team.
- Most uStudio customers augment our standard metadata with their own company-specific fields for organizing, tracking, and governing their corporate video assets.
- Any custom metadata field you define can be marked as public or private, depending on whether the information contained therein should be distributed with the video to any destinations where the video is published.
- For details on creating your own custom metadata, please see our API documentation on this topic, an excerpt from which is included below:
color - may contain 6 digit hex color values (e.g. #FF6600)
text - may contain simple strings
long_text - may contain longer and multi-line strings
enumeration - may contain a string chosen from a list of allowed values
file - may contain a file that is attached to the video
boolean - may contain true and false boolean values
integer - may contain whole numbers
