How to Customize Your Video Entry Page

The display for MacVideo entries can be customized. Each entry can have its own look and feel based on the content owner’s settings. The Display tab is used to change the elements of the UI for a specific entry and provides a great amount of flexibility to change and customize the display of your content. There are various UI elements that you can customize by toggling them on or off as well as choosing the version of player you would like to use. You can also choose a different player to enable a download button if you wish your users to be able to download the video directly as well as a video player that has a side by side view instead of the default. The UI changes will be saved and viewable on the MacVideo site itself while you can choose which video player is the default when sharing and embedding.

To customize your media entry:

1. Go to the entry you’d like to customize
2. Under ACTIONS go to Edit
3. Click on the Display tab.


4. Choose from the following options to customize the design of the entry page.
