Sharing videos

One of the great features of esfab Video network is the ability to share videos and ownership rights with specific users at esfab. You can set the actual ownership rights to a video during the Upload stage or afterwards in video play mode. In play mode, click on the Share option to allow everyone at esfab to view the video, or enter username(s) of people at esfab as collaborators or viewers. You can also email specific users to let them know that you've shared a video with them.

Editing and deleting videos

If you have ownership or collaboration rights to a video, you can edit the metadata (title & description) associated with the video. In the video player view, click on the Edit option. Don't forget to click Save when you're finished. To delete video that you've uploaded previously, navigate to the video play view and click on the Edit option. Underneath the metadata, click on Delete Video to remove the video from esfab network. There is no undo function so if you need the video again or deleted it in error, you'll have to upload it again.

Closed captions

You can add captions to your videos. If you're an owner or collaborator of a video, you can expand the 'Closed captions' link to upload a timed text file. 

Owners, Collaborators and Viewers

The owner is the person who uploaded the video. Owners can delete videos, modify title/description, see the sharing list, hide/show downloading links, change the sharing list, and delete tags submitted by others. Collaborators can do everything owners can do expect delete videos. Viewers can view the video but can't make any changes to any of the video's metadata. Viewers can also download videos if owners/collaborators show downloading links.

All users at esfab network can submit comments, video ratings, and tags. Note that comments and tags are not anonymous.

Embedding videos

There are many options to promote your videos by embedding them on your own sites and pages.

Searching Videos

Before searching, it's important to understand that videos are ranked based on multiple criteria, such as video metadata, total views, total unique views, and ratings. You can find all videos that you've been given access to and those that have been shared with the whole esfab network by entering information in the Search field such as the video's title or the owner's username. You can also find videos by using the advanced operator 'owner:username' where username is the username of the person in esfab network.

In video play mode, click the owner's username to view all videos that have been uploaded by that particular user.
Note that recent uploads and changes to metadata may take up to 60 seconds to be reflected in search results, the landing page, and the My Videos tab.

How tagging works

Anyone viewing a video has the ability to tag it. As you start typing the tag, esfab Video network will show an autocomplete list containing tags that have been previously recommended by the admin and tags recently used by you. Tags are not anonymous and the name of the person who submitted the tag appears as a tooltip when you hover over the tag. The tag will say 'Tag created by username'. You can delete the tags that you've submitted at any time by clicking on the X icon next to the tag. Administrators of an organization can delete any tag for any video.
