What is a Video Export Object?

Video Exports are objects that link between Playlists/Uploaded videos and Export channels. Using this object you can select what Playlist or Video upload you would like to export, and to which supported 3rd party Export Credentials you want to export them to.

  7. Verify that the 'ENABLED' button is activated to define this video export feed as active. Deactivating this button suspends the video export feed.

  8. Under the 'EXPORT TYPE' field, select the '3rd Party Platform' option. This will allow you to export to one of our supported Export Setting types (YouTube or Brightcove).

  9. Apply the required settings according to the following table:

    Field Name     Description
    NUMBER OF ENTRIES Enter a numeric value (from 0 and up) to limit the number of videos that will be taken from the playlist. 

    For example: Let's assume you have a dynamic playlist with an infinite number of videos. Setting this field to 20 will only export the last 20 videos from that playlist every time the playlist is sampled. If the playlist is sampled every 5 minutes, after 10 minutes 40 videos will be exported (excluding duplicates).
    PLAYLIST Click on this field to search and select the required predefined playlist you would like to export.

    Important! You may only export videos that are owned by you under your company. The owning company selector is the last field in this page.

    Note: Make sure your playlist only includes videos that are owned by you under your company.
