Many studios use the combination of "Eversports Manager & Vimeo" when offering their video library. The videos are uploaded to Vimeo. The video link is then stored in the Eversports Manager. Videos are seamlessly integrated into the Eversports app and your widget for your customers. Your customers cannot share your video links. Videos can only be viewed with a valid product (e.g. membership). In this article, we'll show you how to set everything up.
1) Activate the video library in your Eversport Manager
If you click on the "Market" menu item in your Eversports Manager, you can activate the "Video library" extension there. After activation, you can create your own video library for your website. Here you can find all information on how to create videos. If you don't have an Eversports Manager yet, you can contact us here.
2) Creation of a Vimeo account
Vimeo offers different price packages. For the basic needs, the smallest solution at € 6 per month is sufficient. If the demand for your videos is very high, it may be necessary to use a larger package. A package change is possible at any time. No ads will be displayed for videos from Vimeo.
3) Upload video to Vimeo
As soon as you have activated your Vimeo account, you can upload your videos to Vimeo. This works via the "New Videos" button at the top right. As usual, you can also assign a video title and choose a preview image.
4) Make the right settings
We recommend that you make the settings for your videos so that the videos cannot be shared or downloaded by your customers.
As soon as you have uploaded your video, you will find various menu items to the left of the video. In the menu item "General" you should first set that your videos cannot be downloaded. Videos shouldn't be added to collections either. We also recommend that you chose the option "Hide the video on Vimeo.com".
If you click on the menu item "Embed", you should deactivate the actions "Like", "Watch later", "Share", "Embed", "Profile picture", "Title", "Responsibility", and "Let user decide" . This is necessary so that your customers can only see the video with their products, but not the link behind it. You can also deactivate that the Logo of Vimeo is shown to your customers.
5) Store the video link in the Eversports Manager
As soon as you have uploaded your video to Vimeo and the settings have been made, you can save the link in your Eversports Manager. Here you can find all the information about how it works.
The video is embedded directly in the Eversports app and widget for your customers. This creates a seamless user experience.
We wish you all the best with your video library and look forward to your feedback!
