How to use the Video Manager feature of ClipBucket

Managing the videos of your ClipBucket website via the Video Manager

In order to manage all of the uploaded videos on your website you are provided with separate page in the admin area of your website. In this tutorial we will provide you with more information on how to use that page.

 

This tutorial assumes that you have already logged into the admin area of your website.

 

In order to access the Video management page you will need to navigate to Videos > Video Manager.

There you will be presented with a complete list for all of the uploaded videos on your website in a convenient table view.

At the top of the page you will be able to find the search feature which will allow you to search within all of the videos for contents matching the search criteria you have configured.

Once you configure the search criteria you will need to simply click on the Search Form button at the bottom of the newly appeared form and you will be presented with the search results.

 

Next on that page right before the tables view with your videos you will notice five functional buttons which will allow you to take different type of action against all of the selected videos.

  • Activate – For activating any inactive videos
  • Deactivate – For deactivating any active videos
  • Make Featured – For making a video featured(displayed in the featured videos section)
  • Make Unfeatured – To remove a video from the featured section
  • Delete – To delete a video

 

In order to apply any of these functions on a video you will need to ensure that the video will be selected properly. In order for a video to be selected you will need to simply tick the checkbox before the video in the beginning of every row from the videos table view.

Right below the functional buttons we have described you will be able to find a table view for all of the videos on your website. Each video is displayed in a single row in that table view.

Now if you hover over a video you will be provided with 6 additional options you can choose from.
