Managing video content: adding, disabling and pausing videos

The following article walks you through video management in your MyVideoly products library.

1. Adding videos to multiple products

MyVideoly’s multi-add tool makes adding videos to multiple products easy. 

Step 1: Search for products in the search bar. There are two ways to do this:

  • Paste in multiple product SKUs or EANs in the search bar (separated by a space, comma or semicolon).
  • Search by product title (one by one) and select products as you perform multiple searches. Products will stay selected until you untick them.

💡When adding one or more videos to large product batches, you can select all products on succeeding pages by clicking the drop-down arrow next to the selection box: 

Step 2: Adding videos 

  • Click ‘+Add video’ at the top of your products list
  • Paste in the YouTube URL of the video you’d like to add
  • Assign a genre and language (*available languages in the drop-down menu are those that have been set for your shop)
  • If you’d like to add multiple videos to your products, click ‘add another video’ 

Done!


💡A note on manually added video

  • Manually added videos will feature a 'circled plus' in the video thumbnail in MyVideoly. We always ensure that only embeddable videos that are available on YouTube are displayed in the widget. We also perform this check on videos that you manually add via MyVideoly.
  • All videos you upload manually in MyVideoly get ranking priority, so they’ll appear in the widget before other videos.

If a video you have added cannot be embedded, or is not available on YouTube, you will see a notification of this in a green thumbnail (see example below)

You can also manage video content in the product card. You can access a product card by going to the products tab in your MyVideoly tool, searching for a particular product and clicking on it.

💡You can always preview changes by clicking on ''Open in the store''.

2. How to disable a video on a product

Click on the product card and switch the slider on the video you want to disable to 'off'. 

3. Pausing videos on a product

If you'd like to pause all videos on a product, (this will prevent videos from appearing alongside a product) simply switch the slider in the top left of the product card to 'off'. You can also pause a product in the product library view by switching the slider featured alongside the product to 'off'.  

4Adding videos to a product in the product card

In the product card, click the '+Add' button in the top right. 

  • Paste in the YouTube URL of the video you want to add. 
  • Assign a genre and a language. 
  • You can add multiple videos by clicking the '+' button. 
  • When you're done click 'add'.

💡Can't find a product in your library? This is most likely because it has not been visited during the last 30 days. Simply visit the product in your store and refresh your MyVideoly window. The product should now appear in your products library and you can work with the product card. 

💡We recommend adding a genre to videos, as this helps set your site visitors’ expectations about the video they are about to watch. Genre labels will always appear in your store's default language. We have eight genres to pick from: 

  • Presentation
  • How-to
  • Review
  • Specs
  • Unboxing
  • Comparison
  • Brand
  • Inspiration

5. Changing the order of videos

Changing the order of videos is a simple drag-and-drop and will take effect on your site immediately.

💡You can also block or allow videos and YouTube channels via your MyVideoly Settings (under 'Content'). Find out more here.

We always appreciate any feedback you have on videos, MyVideoly features or our service in general, as this helps us develop and continuously improve the flow of videos to your product pages.
