Create my first channel
To start using Viloud, the first step we must take is to create an account with the email and password you choose from this link: https://app.viloud.tv/signup
Creating the first channel
Once we have activated from the confirmation email, we will access the management panel.
To create our first channel, press in " Create my first channel" and now you can choose between create a channel from your content or from a Youtube playlist.
- From your content: write the channel name, choose the color you want to appear on the player controls and add your logo (preferably PNG with transparent background) then press Accept to create the channel.
If Linear TV channel is selected, all viewers will watch the same content at the same time as the traditional television. Choose the time to start, first video will start at this time and the channel will be running 24/7. Be sure you have changed your timezone to your Area from the settings page.
- From a Youtube Playlist: write the channel name, add the URL of the Youtube playlist, choose the color you want to appear on the player controls and add your logo (preferably PNG with transparent background) then press Accept to create the channel.
If you created a channel from your content, now just need to add the videos you want from Youtube, Vimeo or our own server.
To add videos, go to "My Content" tab. Here there are three columns with buttons to add videos from every platform.
To add the first video just have to press its button, paste the video URL eg (http://youtu.be/1234567), write the title of the video and press Add.
Add more videos repeating the previous step as many times as wanted.
Including videos to the channel
Once we have the uploaded videos, we must go to " My Channels", click on the created channel, and add the videos you like to channel tab.
Preview and Embed
When you have selected the videos for the created channel, you can preview the channel clicking on " Preview" or copy the appropriate code to embed on your website obtained clicking on "Embed" button.
As you can see, creating channels with viloud is extremely easy and does not take more than 3 minutes to have it up and running.
