How to categorize video assets on Wowza Video (cloud version)


I created and uploaded successfully assets with wowza-video-rest-api. I wanted to know if there’s a way to seperate the videos by regrouping them.

I could create VOD-Application with WOwza Engine (local version) and stream seperated videos, but not in the cloud version.

Hello so glad to hear you’re using Wowza Video with the API, we just made an entire video series on that.

To answer your question: In general if you want a set of videos returned in a search result, then using common tags in Wowza Video would be the way to go. If you are looking to implement something like a playlist, we can’t quite do that directly in Wowza Video just yet.

You can see Barry demonstrate how to use tags in Video 5 in the playlist link I shared above.
