How to Use Tags

Tags allow you to organize and group your videos and live streams. You can use Tags to label similar content together. For example, if you have multiple videos of pets, you can tag each video with “pet”, as well as a tag for the type of pet, like “dog”.

Adding Tags to Videos

To add a Tag to a video, go to the Videos page, select the video(s) you wish to Tag, using the ‘Add Tag’ drop down you can select the Tag(s) you want to add to your video(s):

You can also add tags to an individual video while on any video’s detailed settings page. Simply click the green ‘+’ icon in the ‘Video Tags’ section.

Creating New Tags

To create new Tags for videos select the video(s) you’d like to tag on the Videos Page, click the ‘Add Tag’ button and choose ‘Create New Tag’ to enter a new Tag.
