4.2.1 Videos Folder View

By activating folder view, you have the potential to easily organize and manage numerous video files.

Moving from left to right, you can see your “Media Folders” on the left, the “Folder Videos” in the middle and “Video Actions” / “Folder Actions” on the right.

  1. Media Folders. In this section, all the created folders can be viewed.
  2. Folder Videos. The content of each selected folder is displayed in this section.

You also have the ability to search for a specific image file using the search tool

Video Actions

1.Adding a Video file to a folder.

To add a single video file to a folder, you click on the “+ Add Video/YouTube/PowerPoint” button found on the right side of your screen. As a next step you are requested to specify:

– the name of the video

– an optional description for it

– a selection of source type of the video to be uploaded

-a “choose” button where you select the video you want (for Video Upload and PowerPoint upload)

Clicking “Save” will upload the video.

-When a YouTube video link or Video Stream is to be uploaded, simply copy and paste on the required field the valid YouTube video address or video stream and click “save” to upload.

-In regard to the “Video Upload” source type, there is an option to upload the exact file for playback and not the normalized version. This option is generally recommended for advanced users only since the playback of the original video file might fail. Enabling this option while uploading will inhibit encoding, decreasing the time required for the video to be available, but also prevent a thumbnail for the video from being created.

2. Adding Multiple Video/PowerPoint files to a folder.

To add multiple Video/PowerPoint files at once to a folder, click on the green “+Add Video/PowerPoint” button. In the file selection dialog box that shows up, keep the Ctrl button on your keyboard pressed and select as many video/PowerPoint files as you want and they will be automatically uploaded. To select multiple video/PowerPoint files that are contiguous, click on the first video file you want to add, press the Shift button on your keyboard and click on the last in the block of video files you want and all the video files in between will also be automatically uploaded.

3. Editing a Video(s) file in a folder.

You can rename the video file, change its description or simply substitute it for another video file under the same name. By doing so, the specific video will be automatically replaced by the new one in any playlist or show that it has been already added to.

To edit multiple videos at once in a folder, check the videos that you want to edit and click the Edit button in one of them. By doing so, a new window will pop up with all the settings (Remove Tags, Add tags, Play Since, Play Until).
