If you need to apply business-specific metadata to your videos, you can define custom metadata key-value pairs (default custom parameters). When default custom parameters are set, you gain the following benefits:

  • Custom parameters automatically added to all new videos uploaded through your JWP dashboard

  • Ability to set custom parameters for each property you maintain

  • Consistent spelling and capitalization of custom parameters

  • Business-specific, user-generated custom parameters

Default custom parameters do not apply to the video assets that are automatically generated after a Live Channels event stream ends. You can define custom parameters and tags for Live Channel event videos after you [create an Instant Live Channel](πŸ”—ο»Ώ).

  6. Choose whether the new custom parameter is **Required** or not.

    If you selected **List of pre-defined options**, click within the **Values** text field to add a value. To add more value options, click **+ Add**. When using this option, the first option you add will be the default value. If you leave the first option blank, **Select value** is displayed as placeholder text on the video details page in your JWP dashboard.

  9. Click **Save**. The new custom parameter key and its values appear in the table.

  10. Repeat steps 4-9 to add multiple custom parameters.

<br />

All videos that are **newly** uploaded or registered through your dashboard for this property will have your defined custom parameters applied. These can be seen under the **Custom Parameters** section of the **METADATA** tab.

You can only define a **maximum of 50 custom parameters**.
