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.

<br /> <hr />

## 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.

<br />

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**.

<br />

You can now configure [monetization for the stream](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) with server-side ad insertion (SSAI) advertisements or [embed and start broadcasting](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) content through the stream.
