Video Recommendations

You can recommend a video or a set of videos to your viewers across all the videos. This can be done in the Recommendation Section

Apart from this, related videos get recommended to viewers. The information about the video plays a very important role here.

Filling in video metadata not only enables you to rank on search engines but also helps in recommending the right videos for your audience

Metadata

The deeper your metadata – the easier for your viewers to find what they are looking for if not something better.

  • Video Descriptions: Your viewers will be able to understand the content (and context) of your video with the help of a good video description. Also, a well-optimized description can help your video rank higher in search engines.

  • Language: Fill in video language. This helps viewers to select a video in the language they want.

    For example, you may add videos originally made in one language and also add the dubbed versions. By filling in the language you can enable your viewers to select based on their language preference

  • Tags: Tags are words and phrases that give searches context about your video.


    💡 Pro tip: Add highly relevant video tags to make it easier for viewers to look for what they want. Remember to order them based on their weightage. The first one being the most important and the last one being the least.

  • Content Classification: letting your users know if this content is for adults or can be watched universally makes them decide if they can watch it with a younger audience around.


    Your viewers would find this helpful if they are streaming your content on a CTV during family movie time

  • Video Type and Settings: You can enable your viewers to download a video or can restrict downloading.
    You can also add trailers to promote your videos on social media pages.

  • Movie: When you add a movie, filling in details like genre and cast and crew could be a great way to help your viewers identify similar content

    • Genre: Add the movie genre to let your viewers browse by their mood

    • Cast and Crew: Adding cast and crew information will let your viewers discover other works of an artist. This will be a great value add for fans and followers of an artist.

Streaming Award Festivals: When you are streaming an award festival, the metadata plays a very important role.

Geo-targeting and Geo-blocking

If you want to make your content available only in some locations or if you want to block users of a certain location -- geo-targeting comes in handy.

This feature can be of great use when

  • Your distribution rights do not allow you to distribute content in a particular location

  • Your distribution rights allow you to distribute content only in a particular location

Encoding

For your viewers to enjoy your videos without any buffering issues, it has to be compressed. But compression can reduce quality. Would you trade off video quality for reducing friction? Well..that isn’t a good idea.


So what’s the solution? It is adaptive bitrate streaming.

You have complete flexibility to select the profiles you want to encode your videos in 360p, 720p, 1080p, etc on the Ventuno platform.

You need to configure these settings before uploading a video. You can create multiple profiles with different options - video type (HLS or MP4), video and audio bitrates, and audio type (2.1 or 5.1)
