For a quick overview of how videos work
on Ubindi please see here. If you need a detailed 'how-to', you're in the right place! 😀
On your schedule dashboard you have 3 sections: classes, videos and packages. Click on the middle tab to add, edit or delete a video.
How to add a video
Click on the big orange + button to add a video
On the first screen, you'll need to add a video title, add a date (videos will be sorted by date), how many minutes the video is, and a description. Once you're done click 'next'.
One the next screen, you'll need to add the link to video (vimeo, youtube, zoom etc), set the pricing (it can be fixed, by donation or free), and add a cost. Lastly, add a nice image to be used as a thumbnail for your video. Once you're ready click 'next'.
On the last screen, you can connect your video to any of your existing passes
, and if you've enabled payments
you can decide whether you want to be paid before people watch the video or if you're allowing people to watch and pay you later (in person for example, if you prefer that). For videos, we recommend choosing the option 'require payment upfront'
Once you're done click 'save' and tada! your video is ready to be watched/purchased. This is how your students will see it on your public profile:
How to edit a video
If you need to change anything, go to your video tab on your schedule, and click the 3 little dots at the top right of any of your videos. Select 'edit' and you'll be taken through the set up screens we showed you above where you can change any information and then save.
If you need to change the pass and payment setup for any video, on that same little menu, choose 'set up' to go directly to the step where you can adjust the passes, and payments settings for that one video.
How to preview your video
On that same 3 little dots menu, you can also preview your video. If your video is hosted on youtube or vimeo, you will see that a player will open directly on Ubindi, and that's how your students will see the video once they get access to it.
The player that opens on Ubindi only works with youtube and vimeo. For any other kind of video link (zoom, google drive), instead of the player, your students will be taken directly to the video on a new tab on their device, and then can watch the video there.
This is what the player looks like on Ubindi (minus the lovely deer). It can be set to full screen too, of course.
How to delete a video
In that very same little 3 dots menu shown above, you'll find an option to delete a video. Before you do, you'll see a dialogue asking you to confirm.
On Ubindi videos don't auto-delete (yet): if you add a video that has an expiry date (like a zoom class replay, for example) you'll need to delete it from your Ubindi video library after the expiry period.
