The video aggregate web application is populated through the Brightcove Video Cloud (https://videocloud.brightcove.com). Static content areas can be modified through Cascade Server (https://cascade.wesleyan.edu). Rules mapping collections to tags can also be modified through Cascade. After tagging in Brightcove, the Brightcove API can take up to 15 minutes to update completely.
All videos must be tagged with the word “public” to show up on the site. Videos must also be contained within the NML account or shared with this account (http://support.brightcove.com/en/video-cloud/docs/media-sharing).
Home Page (http://video.wesleyan.edu)
This section displays a photo gallery of Video Stills from any videos tagged with the word “featured”. This is displayed in the order of most recently published. There must be at least one featured video.
This section on the home page is automatically generated from the Brightcove system. It displays the last twelve published videos that contain the tag “public”. If a video needs to be hidden from this section, apply the tag “hidefromhome”.
Any video tagged with the word “public” will show up in the search results even if it does not belong to a Collection. Searches will find matches in the display name, short description, long description, and tags.
Collections can be managed through Cascade Server under the Video Aggregate site on the page collections. When editing the page, each collection will have a Tag and Collection Name. The Tag will match what is tagged in Brightcove, and the Collection name will become the menu item, header, and links on the Video Aggregate site. Videos can belong to multiple collections.
Current tags for collections (subject to change)
Detail pages will display the embedded video, title, short description, long description, and the first three related videos. If the video belongs to any collection, it will be shown on this page as well.
Brightcove does not allow for HTML formatting in the long description field. The Video Aggregate site will interpret new lines as breaks(<br />) and carriage returns as paragraphs(<p></p>). URL’s will also be automatically converted to hyperlinks that open in a new window.
