Categorizing a Video

Assigning a Video to Categories


Categories within the Streaming Media Portal are like virtual folders that help organize the content. Also, access permissions are assigned to categories, meaning that all videos added to a category inherit those permissions by default.

Note: In general, you will only have rights to assign videos to one or two categories. If you believe your video belongs in another category that you do not have permission to assign videos to, contact LTS Video at 715-836-5073, or send an email to video@uwec.edu.

  1.  When viewing your video, note the tabs below it that allow for the adjustment of video settings. The default tab selected is Categories. Click Assign to Categories.

  2. In the Update Categories area on the right side of the screen, you will see a list of categories that you have permission to add videos to. Select the checkbox next to the desired category/categories.

  3. Click Submit. You will see the category appear in the Categories area of the screen.
