Vydia empowers creators by providing them with the tools they need to easily manage all of their video content from one centralized platform. Now with Vydia Mobile, users can take these tools on-the-go and do more of what they love: making great content. Creating a Vydia account on the app is simple, plus it’s free. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started with your new Vydia account on Vydia Mobile:
To see the app in action, click to watch the demo video here:
If you haven’t already, download Vydia Mobile from the Android or iOS App Store.
Upon opening the app you’ll have to create an account to login. You can do so by clicking “Create Account” and choosing to either sign up with your YouTube or Facebook account or by typing in an email address and password. If you sign up with an email and password, it will take you to the next step, connecting a Facebook and YouTube. However, if you sign up with a social account, you’ll have to authorize Vydia in order to move forward. You can do so by tapping “Allow” at the bottom of the screen. Regardless of whether you connect a Facebook or YouTube account, you’ll have to go through the same authentication process.
Connect Facebook or YouTube
Once your account has been created, Vydia Mobile will bring you to a new screen where you’ll be able to connect your other social media accounts. The more accounts you connect, the more valuable Vydia Mobile will be because you will have more opportunities to publish and monetize your videos on different platforms. In the video example above, we signed up with YouTube so now we’ll have the opportunity to connect our Facebook Page. When you select the ‘Connect a Facebook Page’ just tap ‘OK’ in order to give Vydia permission to connect and post to your account. You’ll have another opportunity to connect your additional social media account later.
Now that your Facebook or YouTube are connected, you can set up Social Sync. This feature is Vydia’s own proprietary technology which allows you to sync videos from your YouTube channel or Facebook Page right to your Vydia library for protection and distribution to other social outlets. In the video above, we will turn on Social Sync for Facebook by tapping ‘Yes, Enable Sync’. After enabling sync, Vydia Mobile will recognize any previously uploaded videos from your Facebook Page that are not being protected. They will appear in a list on the app and you will then be prompted to apply protection policies. To protect them, simply tap ‘Protect’ on the right.
Once you hit ‘Protect’ you will be taken into Rights Sync workflow. Rights Sync allows creators to set their preferred protection policies for all the videos that sync from Facebook and YouTube. Before you set the policies you will need to review all of the pre-populated metadata for your video. If it is all correct, scroll down to the ownership and policy section where you can choose policies for how Vydia will treat third-party uploads of your video. As you’ll see, there are a few different policies to choose from:
- ‘Permit’- allows other users to reuploaded your content on their page without you generating revenue.
- ‘Monetize’- puts your video into a queue for Vydia Content Protection which will enable you to collect revenue from user-generated content.
- ‘Block’- prevents content from appearing anywhere on Facebook except for the creator’s connected Facebook Page. Please note, blocking content from Facebook will also block the video from appearing on the creator’s personal Facebook account as well.
Once your policies are set, click ‘Save’, and you’ll be prompted to sign the Vydia Content License Agreement which is a contract between you and Vydia. By accepting the Content License Agreement, you grant Vydia the rights to publish, distribute, protect and monetize your content on your behalf. Just type your name into the box and tap ‘Accept’. You’ll then be brought back to the Rights Sync page where you can review your information before finally tapping ‘Protect’. Now, your content will be protected by whatever policies you chose. Tap ‘Continue’ to move forward with setting up your account.
Connect Social Accounts
The final step is to add more social accounts which will allow you to maximize the power of Vydia Mobile by letting you publish to multiple networks at once. However, if you don’t have any other accounts to connect, click the text at the bottom to go to your home screen. Your home screen acts as your control center where you can find important information about your Vydia account. It features shortcuts to quickly connect a social account, upload new content to your video library, or post content across your connected networks. From the home screen, you’ll also be able to access information like post history, connected socials, uploaded content, and unprotected videos. This page is updated whenever there is activity on your account so make sure to check back often to stay on top of your content.
