Creating a Syndication

After creating a syndication, you can associate it with labels; all videos and channels that use the one of the labels will automatically be syndicated using the settings.

For step-by-step details for the various types of syndication, see Specific Syndications.

To create a syndication:

  1. Log in to the Backlot UI. The Backlot UI opens.
  2. Open the PUBLISH page.
  3. Click the External Publishing subtab.
  4. Select the desired type of syndication from the list box and click New. If you want to create a generic Media RSS (MRSS) feed, select Advanced Syndication. A new syndication is created.
  5. Change the name of the syndication.
  6. Enter a description, specify where the videos are hosted in the Hosted At field, and specify any settings specific to the publishing type.
  7. To specify which content is syndicated, if this syndication is for all your content, click All content. Otherwise, click Add Labels and select one or more labels.
The syndication is created.
