  • Video Name: This is the name of the video that we are adding.
  • Video Type: Here we have to select the type of the video that we want to show in the front. If you want to show the YouTube video then you have to select the youtube option same for rest of the options.
  • Video Code: This is the most important data to show video in the front and should be filled very carefully. Video code is uniquely defined code for every video. You dont have to give the full URL of the video just give the right video type and copy the video code. Video code is taken by following way.

Example –

  • For YouTube, if the video page URL is “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCohV07kSRi” then the video code will be “LCohV07kSRi”.
  • For Vimeo, if the video page URL is “https://vimeo.com/142220544” , then the video code will be “142220544”.
  • For Dailymotion videos, if the page URL is “http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2v0voc_micromax-yu-yuphoria-camera-review_tech”, then the video code will be “video/x2v0voc_micromax-yu-yuphoria-camera-review_tech”.

Full URL of the video can also be given.

  • Show Video: This option is used to make a video visible or hide from the front. Switch this option to show the video in the front.
  • Default Video: Using this option we can make a video default video. The default video is shown first on the front. Only one video can be a default. Whenever we turn on this option and save the video, then all the other videos are set to ‘not default’ videos and the current video is set as default video.

3. Edit Video

To edit a video details, click on the “Edit” link provided in the last of every table row. When we click on the “Edit” link a new page is opened. Edit page provides a form which is filled already by current values and we can change those values.

Edit page has the same options as the add page but the only difference is that by default the values are filled in the Edit page.

4. Delete and Mass Delete

These options provide the functionality to remove assigned video(s).

If you want to remove only one video from the list, then go to the video table and click on the “Delete” link shown in the front of every row, the respective video will be deleted.

If you want to remove/delete multiple videos at a time then check the checkbox for the video that you want to remove and then click in the “Delete Selected” button to delete all the checked videos.

These both actions cannot be undone.
