How can we help?

View Account Settings Follow

Your Zype account's settings allow you to customize Zype according to your specific requirements. These include the following:

To set, edit, and view your Zype account settings, follow the steps below.

  1. On the Zype Admin Dashboard, click the Tools menu at the top, then Settings.


  2. On the Settings page, there are 11 tabs, with the General Settings tab being the first. Here, you can view and edit your account name, domain, and the default setting for the videos that are imported and uploaded to your Video Library.

  3.  On the Monetization tab, you can view and edit your Stripe and Braintree settings (if you are using one or the other, or both) and set the default payment type for subscriptions, purchases and rentals, pass plans, and redemption codes.

    If you are using Amazon In-App Purchasing and are publishing your Amazon Fire TV app with your own developer account, you can also set your Amazon In-App Purchasing Shared Key here.

    If you are using device linking in your app endpoints, you can also toggle ON your device linking settings here, thus enabling automatic device unlinking when consumers cancel their subscriptions to your plans.

  4. On the Player Settings tab, you can view and edit the settings of Zype's desktop and mobile players.

    Under the Age Gate section, you can require your viewers to enter their age before viewing your videos. You can require the same for viewers of your mature videos.

    Under the Social Sharing section, you can allow your viewers to share your videos on Facebook and Twitter, and access to your embed codes.

    Under the Google section, you can enable Google Analytics on your videos. You can enable Chromecast support for your videos as well.
        NOTE: iOS mobile web Chromecast support is limited to free videos using the Javascript web embed.



    Under the Advanced section, you can set browsers with Bitmovin players to use Flash, as well as set your JWPlayer version, license key, API key, and API secret code.

  5. On the Player Branding tab, you can upload a logo to appear on your web players, so long as your content is playing through the Zype player. Player logos should have a maximum width of 48 pixels and lower than 100% opacity (suggested 50% opacity). The logo will appear in the bottom right corner of the web player.

    You can also set a URL to where your users can be redirected when they click your logo, set the logo to auto-hide when player controls are hidden, and set custom player error messages and images.

  6. On the Player Messaging tab, you can set various messages that appear on your desktop and mobile players when your videos are accessed by your viewers and consumers.

  7. On the Live Slate tab, you can upload an image that will be displayed over your player before the start and at the end of a broadcast, unless you've specified a custom thumbnail for the event. You may also upload your Live Slate image in the live event creation flow. If you do not have a custom thumbnail and choose not to upload an image for the slate, Zype provides a default Off Air slate. 

  8. On the VOD Presets tab, you can set your presets for transcoding and delivering your video content to your users.

  9.  On the SMTP tab, if you have your own SMTP host or server, you can enter the address, port, and logon credentials here. Zype will use your SMTP server to send emails to your customers on your behalf.

  10. On the Consumer Settings tab, you can set a limit to how many concurrent logins a single consumer account can have. This is a global setting, meaning it applies to logins from all devices.

    Once the consumer account exceeds the designated limit, it will expire the oldest logins first, meaning consumers signed in originally will be signed out of their account right away.
  11. On the Upload Embed Settings tab, you can configure the settings for your embeddable upload widget. Using HTML code, this widget can be embedded on a website and allows your users to add video uploads to your Zype channel.

  12. On the Search Embed Settings tab, you can configure the settings for your embeddable search widget. Using HTML code, this widget can be embedded on a website and allows your users to search for videos on your Zype channel.
