In order to make your Listing as attractive as possible, Vuulr encourages you to provide as much supporting assets as possible. These "assets" include:
- Artwork, including Frame Stills, etc.
- Other Promotional Videos
This article focuses on Image Assets, specifically posters and artwork. For information on video assets, please see Using Your Image Assets To Create An Attractive Listing.
Managing Video Assets
Listings must have at least one video asset in order to be published and accessed by Buyers. We have two categories of Trailers and Screeners - Primary and Secondary. A listing will look similar to this:
Uploading and Managing Videos (Trailers and Screeners)
Sellers are able to upload video assets directly into the Vuulr platform. Unlike public cloud-based video hosting services like YouTube and Vimeo, these videos are in a secure videos streaming platform that can only be accessed by approved Vuulr users. For information on ideal file types and encodings, please see the article Video Assets Requirements.
The Media Uploads page for a Listing will show you what video (and image) assets are already attached to the Listing. You are also able to upload (or replace) videos (and images).
To Upload, you're able to (optionallly) set a title for the video. (If you do not provide a title, the filename will be used). You're then able to upload videos directly from your hard disk by clicking the "Click here to upload a video file".
Note: At this time, there is a file size limit of 2GB. If you have a video file that is greater than that, please reach out to Vuulr support by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
After you've uploaded the video, the platform will transcode the video into a few different resolutions so Buyers on a wide variety of internet connections should be able to view the video within their bandwidth constraints.
When the transcoding is complete, (or if it fails), the platform will send an email to you informing you of the status.
When the video transcoding has completed, the status will change to "This video asset is hosted on Vuulr".
Embedding Videos from Vimeo
If you already have video assets on Vimeo, you're able to embed the existing video without having to re-upload. We do not accept the use of YouTube links, as YouTube often includes ads or other elements which may detract from the Buyer's experience.
Should you wish to embed your existing Vimeo videos, do note there are specific security settings you will need to set in order for it to properly be accessible on Vuulr. See How To Embed Video - Vimeo.
