MRSS Video Duplication Prevention Policy

What is an MRSS Video Duplication Prevention Policy?

To prevent video upload duplications in the system by MRSS feeds, we have introduced a new feature that checks if any videos uploaded by your feeds have any identical <guid> metadata attribute values. Videos that share an identical <guid> value in their metadata will not be uploaded to the system.

The duplication prevention policy can be applied to the following levels:

  • Feed level - Checks for duplicate video items in a single feed (this policy will apply to each Feed separately under your Company).

    Note: The following diagram explains the logic of this prevention policy.






  • Company level - Checks for duplicate video items in multiple feeds defined under your Company (either on your selected White Label or specific Affiliate).

    Note: The following diagram explains the logic of this prevention policy.




  • White Label level - Checks for duplicate video items in multiple feeds under all of your White Label's Affiliate Companies.

    Note: The following diagram explains the logic of this prevention policy.




Important! The White Label level can only be applied to a White Label Company that includes Affiliate Companies.

  6. In the 'General' tab, click on the 'Duplicate video check protocol' field, and select the required policy according to the following options:

    Name Description
    Feed

    Selecting this option will apply the duplication prevention policy to each feed under your selected Company separately.
    This policy will only prevent duplicate videos from being uploaded in the same feed.

    Example: If you have several MRSS feeds, videos that have an identical <guid> metadata attribute, and reside under the same Feed will be prevented from uploading.
    But if the videos with the identical name reside under different feeds, the duplicate will still be uploaded to the system.

    Company

    Selecting this option will apply the duplication prevention policy to all of the feeds under the selected company.
    This policy will prevent duplicate videos from being uploaded using any feed in your company.

    Example: If you have more than one MRSS feed, videos that have an identical <guid> metadata attribute, and reside under different feeds, will be prevented from being uploaded. But if the duplicate videos reside under MRSS feeds in different Affiliate Companies, the duplicate will still be uploaded to the system.

    White Labeler

    Important! This option can only be applied to White Label parent Companies.

    Selecting this option will apply the duplication prevention policy to all feeds, under all of your Affiliate Companies in your White Label.
    This policy will prevent duplicate videos from being uploaded using any feed, in any Affiliate company.

    Example: Lets say you have several Affiliate Companies and each one has several MRSS feeds. Videos that have an identical <guid> metadata attribute, but reside under different MRSS feeds and also in different Affiliate Companies, will be prevented from being uploaded.

    Note: This option ensures that no duplicate videos can be uploaded using any feed in all your Affiliate Companies.
