Adding a new video

Brella supports adding videos from most major video hosting and streaming providers. However, we have actively tested and recommended using a few services, including Youtube, Vimeo, and Wistia.

On the Content tab, you can add on-demand videos and create virtual spaces to gather online with your community through the Breakout Rooms.

 

πŸ“½οΈ How to Add On-demand videos

  1. Log in to your Brella Admin Panel (manager.brella.io)

  2. Navigate to the Admin Panel for your community.

  3. Navigate to the On-Demand Videos tab.

  4. Click on the green Add Videos button.

  5. In the modal that opens, you can:

  • Upload a cover image
  • Add a descriptive title
    • We recommend something that describes the series of the video, followed by the individual video title to improve discovery. For example, [EventCon 2020] Keynote: Session with Jim Smith
  • Add the embed video URL
    • You will need the embed URL from your video provider. This is not the same as the regular video access URL that you can copy from your browser.
    • Here’s how to find the embed URLs for our recommended providers:
  • Write an enticing description that explains what your members will get from the video
  • Turn on the send announcement option if you want to automatically notify your members when the video is published

Give a title to your first on-demand video, add the Embed video URL, and, last, add a short description of the video.

Great! You have created your first on-demand video. πŸŽ‰ After creating an on-demand video, it will show up like the image below.
