Choose Multimedia Channel for Playlist

In addition to adding individual video or multimedia file content to your site, you can incorporate multimedia playlists stored in Brightcove or Youtube libraries directly into CommonSpot pages.

Your site may have some or all channels available. Administrators create new channels through Site Admin - Multimedia Services - Channels.

Pick the target channel.

Check with external services for updates to these limits. Note that external content is not searchable via the full-text search feature.

To begin the upload process, click to highlight the target channel, as shown above for the Brightcove Default Channel, then click  Next. A Select Subsite dialog displays for the new multimedia playlist.
