How to Override Video Metadata in a Playlist

You can override a title, a description and a thumbnail of a video in a playlist. The overriding metadata is saved on a playlist and a company level, which means that the change won't affect the original video.

Note: The metadata override is saved in the company context, so the users of other companies won't be able to see it.

Note: You can override the same video metadata in multiple playlists.

Note: The metadata override can only be applied to manually selected videos. 



To override a video title, description and/or thumbnail, perform the following steps:

  1. Access the Playlist edit page by either editing it or creating a new one.

  4. Optional: To revert the change of video title and/or description, delete the text you wrote and press enter/return. The original title and/or description is displayed.
