This guide will provide a brief explanation of each main area of Viostream and what you can expect going into them.

With this foundational knowledge of the core features within the platform, you’ll become a Viostream expert in no time!


This tab acts as the homepage of your Viostream account when you first log in. Think of it as your bread and butter library where you can upload and navigate all the Media content within the platform. Once you have begun uploading content, those videos will be listed here.

From the Library, You can distribute your videos by simply selecting the Share button, filter through all your uploaded Media, and dive deeper into individual video settings.

Browse through all your content with our search and filter functions within the Library.


Channels provides an easy way for you to create a branded website for a playlist of videos.

Just like individual Media, you can embed a Channel that houses multiple videos. Additionally, you can create branded video libraries with one of our Channel Templates. Choose between either a Simple template to create a share page with a video carousel under the player, or select Gallery to create a Channel with multiple sections and as many videos as you would like.

You can lock Channels behind Viewer Registration, or have them completely public as your organization’s own personal video library.


So you’ve created videos and sent them out into the world; but how do you know if people are actually engaging with your content?

The Reports tab is your one-stop-shop for an analytical overview of how your videos are being used. There is a wealth of information you can access within this tab, such as; play count, play rate, viewer location, engagement time, top viewed media and heat map.

There’s a lot of value to be hand when you are aware of how effective and engaging your videos are, so don’t forget to keep an eye on your analytics to keep on top of your growth!
