Referred to as “mini-portals”, channels are personally managed, user generated media collections in MiVideo.

Viewers can subscribe to channels to be notified when new content is added. See related Channel articles for more information.

How do I add media to a MediaSpace channel?

Resolution

Once a channel is created, media can be added for viewing. See the Create Playlists and Add Media to Playlists articles for more information on creating channel playlists.

Note: Site and channel roles are needed to add media to a channel. See the MediaSpace Roles & Channel User Management article.

New media added within the Channel page is automatically published to the channel and will be automatically added to your My Media library.

  1. Navigate to the Channel page > Media tab > Add to Channel > Add New.
  2. Click Media Upload and select your file. There are multiple ways to add new media, see related Add New Media articles.

  6. There is a Choose another file button at the bottom of the page to add another file. You can upload files and save metadata on the same page, but be careful to make sure all the upload bars have turned green before navigating away.

  • Go to Media directs you to view your newly uploaded media on the Media page.
  • Go to Channel directs you back to the Channel page.
