Link your content by making your videos more interactive

You have the ability to create “pop-up” windows within your videos that hold text or images that can link to another URL when selected. Within Viostream, these are referred to as Overlays

Use these links to point viewers to particular pages that you would like to direct traffic to. Time this with a relevant moment in one of your videos, and these can be very effective.

Creating Overlays

  1. From the Library, locate the Media Asset you wish to tag and click on its Title
  2. Move the Media Timeline tab
  3. Double click the Overlay row in the Media Timeline
  4. Configure your desired options
