If you want to delete this video for some reasons, you can do that as well-
Now, let’s see, how you can upload a video in DotcomPal.
Click on the New Video button-
you need to select a project in which you want to upload this video, if you want to create a new project, you can do that too. Once done with this, simply click on Add-
Now, you get two ways to upload a video, Upload a video from PC or Select Video from MyDrive-
If you have the video on MyDrive, just click on this option, click on the desired video and click on Select and its uploaded-
now this is the time to customize few things but before that, let me show you the process to upload the video from PC. Once you click on Upload from PC option, it will ask you to select the videos from the local drives of your computer, select the video and click on open and you can see that video is uploading, you can drag the video file also and drop here, uploading will start-
You can upload more than one video also at a time, we recommend you not to upload more than 5 at a time. Upload speed totally depends on your internet connection.
You can see the upload progress, once the upload process completes, the next button will be enabled-
Now we can see the screen where we can customize this video to make it more attractive-
Now, if you are uploading one video at a time, after clicking on next, you reach on this page where you can customize your video as per requirements. We will understand this customization in this guide later.
If you are uploading more than one video at a time, after completion of uploading and clicking on next, you will be redirected to this page where you can see all the videos listed.
To customize a video, just need to click on the manage button and you will reach the customization section.
One more thing I would like to mention, when you upload a video, DotcomPal optimize the video in the background to deliver it faster on every device, make it device compatible, set all the resolution qualities this process might take 15-20 minutes, depends on the size of the video, however, you can continue with the customization.
Let’s move to the customization of a video.
My friend, I am sure that you have created a very nice video to attract your audience, but we give you more options that you and your audience will love for sure to present it in a better way.
Here, first of all, you can change the title of your video, you can add the description, this description will also show on the video page also. You can add the tags and select the category also to segregate and to give more exposure to your video.
Once done with all these details, click on Save-
Now, this is time for Player customization. This feature makes DotcomPal different from others.
I am sure, you do not want to present your unique stuff to your audience always in same feel and theme, this creates boredom. So, to avoid it, there are several things you can do.
Selecting the most suitable player out of five of your videos and making some more decisions about the look of your video is super easy thanks to the Player Customize tab.
Just select a player from this dropdown menu-
or you can create a customized player also as per all your requirements-
You can place your Business logo also on your videos with a link to increase your brand authenticity-
There are player’s control options as well, which you can set as per your need.
If you want to set these changes as the default theme for all your videos, you can do that easily from here.
After this just click on this save button to save all the changes-
If you have created a custom player, in that case, I suggest you click on Make Custom player first before Save.
This will list this player in this drop-down menu with all the settings you defined.
Also, if you check mark this box says, “set as default theme”, this would be your default player for this business and automatically applied on videos which you will upload after this. But the videos you have uploaded before this, will not be affected.
Now, the next Tab is Frame, you have options of 9 frames, you can choose any of them to set the look and feel of your video on the video page. The preview is also available here so that you can see the changes at the same time-
As, thumbnail always play a very important role to attract viewers, and I recommend you place a thumbnail wisely.
DotcomPal intelligently picks few thumbnails for your videos, you can select any one of them-
or you can upload a thumbnail by just clicking on this Upload button-
it will ask you to select the image from MyDrive, if you have the image there, you can simply pick that from there-
or you can upload an image from your local drive first and then set that as the thumbnail-
you can get a thumbnail of your choice directly from the video, just play the video, and click on get screenshot on the screen you want to set as a thumbnail-
Once you are done with the selection, just click on Save-
If you want to play the subtitles also on your video to spread your message among your audience in a better way in their own language so they can read it while watching and can understand better, you can do that too. You just need to paste the .srt file and click on save changes and then Save-
Now, you have made your video almost ready for your campaigns with the look and feel of your choice.
But, DotcomPal comes with few more features to monetize your video.
We have created separate Guide for that named as DotcomPal Video Advertisement and DotcomPal Video SEO.
We recommend you go through those training guides also to get the most out of it.
