VOD Channels

The VOD/LIVE/AOD (Audio On Demand) Channels in your Lightcast Account are essential to understand and master. They are like arteries through which the life of your content flows to all your members - to all your publishing properties and outlets. They are the most effective way to organize and archive your media content, live streams and 24/7streams. This week we would like to show you 5 different ways on how to use your VOD & AOD Channels: 

1. Use them to organize your video or audio content by different topics. E.g. Movies, Music, News, Featured, Conferences, Webinars, Documentaries, etc.

2.Sub-divide uploaded content within your VOD/AOD Channels by sub-topics. E.g. ConferenceSessions 1,2,3, Webinar Series XYZ, Documentary Series A,B,C, etc.

3. Embed and publish your VOD/AOD Channels on your websites and social networks with Lightcast’s intelligent and customizable players.

4. Define the content you want to publish on your OTT/ConnectedTV Apps such as Roku, FireTV, AndroidTV, AppleTV and your SmartTV Apps via the Lightcast Channel feed, or have Lightcast’s award-winning development division develop customized TV Apps for you.

5. Define the content you want to publish on your iOS and Android mobile apps, to iTunes and Google Play Podcasts, or to any other publishing platform of your choice via the Lightcast Channel feed, or have Lightcast’s development division develop customized mobile Apps and Podcasts for you.
