In Enterprise Video Content Management systems, it is of elemental need for businesses to streamline the management of media in order to optimize how users use, interact with and navigate through the media within their application system. 


Media Manager in VIDIZMO 


VIDIZMO allows you to manage your media centrally without putting you through the hassle of accessing and managing your content from various sections within the application.  In addition to adding new media, Media Manager helps you keep track of your drafts, media pending approval, published media, expired media and comments on your portal’s media. 


Note: The tabs displayed may vary according to the content and comment moderation settings configured in the Portal. 


Let’s discuss what each one of them has to offer: 

  1. Add New media tab is the most fundamental of VIDIZMO’s features that allows users to upload media to their portal for various business needs. To learn more about it, see: How to Upload Media 
  2. Comments section tabulates all comments associated with the portal’s media in three convenient categories: 

i. Approved consists of all the comments previously approved and are now published where they were posted. The list is maintained against the videos where the comments were posted along with the date of moderation. 

ii. Pending consists of all the comments currently under moderation that require approval to be posted. You can check pending comment requests here and select comment(s) to approve or reject them using bulk selection. 

iii. Rejected enlists those comments that have been rejected while moderation. They can either be permanently deleted or approved later on in time. 

Additionally, Media Manager helps segregate content for ease of accessibility and management in the following main categories: 

  1. Review allows you to moderate user generated content (UGC) from the ease of a single window. It enlists all media requests and provides options to either approve/reject each media. It also allows the user to sort the requests for greater convenience. Review tab is only visible in the Media Manager when content moderation is configured.

  1. Drafts help you manage unpublished media which was saved after upload to be published at a later point in time due to any reason. It displays a consolidated list of all your drafts, while providing various options for every draft. Whenever you feel like your media is ready to greet the world, you can publish your draft(s) right away. To learn more about it, see: How to Save Media as Draft 

  1. Published media displays a chronological list of all media published on the portal, which helps in centralized content management. If you find unwanted media, you can unpublish them to your drafts. There are a list of other options that help you organize, use and share your media more efficiently.

  1. Expired media enlists the media whose date of expiry has been reached. The expiry policy of media can be configured within its respective access settings that allow you to specify the duration for which a media will be available on the Portal.
