Library Overview

The library is where you'll find your complete collection of video content. We’ll cover some of the key tools the library provides in this article.  To access your library, navigate to the Dashboard and click the Library tab from the left panel:

Within the view listing all of your video content, there are four data columns, displaying the title of the video,  duration, active status, and date created, respectively:

Video Shortcuts

We offer a few shortcut buttons from the library page. Each shortcut and their respective roles are explained below.

Video Preview: You can view each video directly from the Library

Edit Video: This shortcut directs you to the Edit Video page where you can edit video details, metadata, and access video embed codes

Video Analytics: Zype offers a suite of video-level analytics you can access from your library

Delete Video: A popup appears asking you if you want to delete the video.

Filtering Your Library

You can use Zype's extensive filtering tools to gain easily view a specific set of video content. Library filters are featured at the top of your Library page, above your video contents.

Hover over the Category option in the Filters dropdown to view a list of category filters. These options include any categories that have been created in the Categories tab.

You can also filter by video source. Hover over the Video Source option in the Filters dropdown to filter content by the video import/upload source.

You can update the metadata of multiple videos in your library at once by selecting individual video checkboxes or selecting a group of filtered videos.

Deleting Videos

You can delete multiple videos at once by selecting the checkboxes to the left of each video. Once you have videos selected, a Delete Videos option will appear within the Update menu:

After selecting the videos you want to delete, a warning will appear confirming the choice. Be sure to confirm the number displayed on the warning page is the correct number of videos you want to delete.
