You might want to stream your existing VOD content in a particular sequence repeatedly. This article will guide you through the process

From the Video Playout Section of the left menu, select Manage EPG (VOD to Live) Content > Add Program

  • Select the required Channel from the dropdown

  • The Program Type can be

    • Media - for scheduling your VOD content

    • Advertisement - for scheduling ads

    • Promo - for scheduling promotions like trailers

  • Select the Program type as Media, select Playlist

    ⚠️ Note: Once a playlist is scheduled, any changes made in order of videos in the playlist will not be reflected in the schedule

  • You can loop the content to be repeated any number of times

    • Eg: if you choose a playlist named pop songs which has 10 videos each 4 minutes long (total 40 minutes) and loop counts as 3. The playlist will be looped thrice (40*3=120) for 120 minutes - This will be shown as Playlist Content Duration once you make your choices

    ⚠️ Note: Playlist Looping Count cannot be edited once submitted. This is to make sure that edits don't affect previously made schedules

    ⚠️ Note: Shows within a playlist will not be considered for the schedule. Only the individual videos will be considered and content duration will be calculated based on the same

  • The next thing you have to do is to schedule the stream by choosing the Program Date. If you have already scheduled a program, then the EPG ending time will be set as the Start Time of the next looping.

  • Let's say If I am going to add a playlist looping on 30th September and the current looping ends on October 1 at 10:30:00 am, then the start time will be set as 10.30.01 am by default and the date will be set to October 1.

  • If the EPG is not added before, you can select the date starting from the current date or a future date.

  • Once the details are added, click the Submit button.

Now you can see the added EPG detail will show up on your website and apps.
