Updated on:

Episodes are the actual videos listed in your channel. People can view the episodes live or watch the video later from the library. You can also post prerecorded videos to the channel library at any time.

Before creating an episode, make sure to set up the video channel where the episode will be posted.

Create an Episode

To create an episode, go a channel, and click New episode in the Episodes tab.

Add an episode title and summary, and then schedule your videos and add links to additional resources.

Schedule Videos

You can schedule videos to play live or set a specific time to replay a video. You can also add videos to a library for people to access later.

See the Locating a Video Link or Embed Code article for information on how to access embed codes for supported video providers.

Schedule Livestream Videos

If your video will be livestreamed, schedule the livestream and add the video embed code.

livestream
  1. Choose Livestream in the Video Type section.
  2. Add a new time for the livestream video.
  3. Edit or remove the existing time. If you are posting this to a channel with pre-set service times, the times will automatically be set to the default times for the channel.

Add the date and start time for the livestream, paste in the embed code for the video, and then click Save.
