Edit stream metadata

Manage the metadata associated with a Broadcast Live stream

After creating a Broadcast Live stream, you can enrich your viewers' experiences by incorporating metadata, which offers additional information about your stream. Metadata consists of descriptive elements such as stream descriptions, relevant tags, and the publishing date, all of which enhance your viewers' understanding of and engagement with your content.

Edit metadata


The stream metadata is captured in the associated media item. Both the Broadcast Live stream ID and the associated media ID of the item have the same value.

Use the following steps to edit metadata fields for a Broadcast Live stream:

  1. From your JWP dashboard Media Library, click the name of the stream. The details page of the stream appears.
  2. Click the title of the stream to rename the video.
  3. On the Basic Information or Advanced Settings tab, update one or more metadata sections of fields. The tables below describe each metadata section and field.
  4. Click Save.

You can now configure monetization for the stream with server-side ad insertion (SSAI) advertisements or embed and start broadcasting content through the stream.

Single Tag
  1. Click Single tag.
  2. Enter the tag.
  3. Click Add.
Multiple Tags
  1. Click Multiple Tags.

As examples, custom fields can be used when setting cue points or storing legacy media IDs.

You can also set default custom parameters that are applied to all new videos uploaded through your JWP dashboard.
Author Name of the media creator

Enter a single author in the text field. This ensures that searches can be performed easily on the author name.
