    Hello, all!

    This thread is going to be aiming to help you in learning how to use the "Media" section! Please remember that this is currently open to previous Members Of The Month's, community team members, and a few other select members who we've noticed being helpful around the forums!

    How to Submit media!

    1. So the first step in submitting media to the library is hover over the "Submit Media" tab, and then click the dropdown named "Submit Media".

    2. Once you have done that you will be prompted to input a youtube video link, into the submit media box, then click "Retrieve Information"

    3. Once the information has been retrieved it will show you the information that it has gathered and it takes the description from the video itself, so you do not have to input it, but that doesn't mean you can not change it, also you will need to include a "Category" so in this instance it would be "Gameplay" for me!

    4. Then once you have checked the video information or inputted your own description. You are prompted to give some keywords to describe your video. We usually would recommend anything above five keywords to give the best result!

    5. We usually would recommend anything above five keywords to give the best result! But please remember to edit the video and input more tags, so it helps you in the search, this will help your content be found by google, bing, and our own forum search engine so people can find your content easier!

    Also, this is the chance to tag any other members that you collaborated with on the video! This will be beneficial in the search results!

    How to Submit a whole playlist of videos!
    Submitting a playlist can be so much easier and beneficial for everyone, especially if you have a whole series completed already, it can be easy to get that up on the media library!
    Please note: When you want to submit a list of videos you will need to have the playlist already created!

    1. So for the first step to this is make sure that you are in the "Media" Tab on the Freedom Forums, and then you need to select "Your Media". Once you have done that it will show you "Your Media"!

    upload_2017-6-8_17-0-36.png

    2. While you are on "Your Media" you need to look towards the left of the table under the section where is say's "Your Account" once you have found that then you can select "Create New Playlist" once you have done that you will be taken to the page where you can fill in the details on the playlist.

    upload_2017-6-8_17-8-12.png


    Hurray! Now your playlist is created we can now put a bulk of videos into it! Just watch these steps.

    3. So now we need to go to the "Submit Media" drop down and then you need to select the "Submit Bulk Playlist".

    upload_2017-6-8_17-15-43.png

    4. Once you have done that you will be prompted with the familiar site of a small box with a section to input a link, when you have found your playlist link pop it in and then hit "Retrieve Information" again!
    Please Note: If you have a very large selection of video's you may want to increase the number of pages that it retrieves the information from.

    upload_2017-6-8_17-19-7.png

    5. Righto, so now you have done that you will be prompted with a new page that gives you the option to input the "Category" which in my case again would be "Gameplay", and then after this one, you have the option to select a playlist to insert them into!

    upload_2017-6-8_17-23-1.png

    Then click "Save" and you are done once that's been completed it will look somewhat similar to this!

    upload_2017-6-8_17-24-3.png


    There we go that's the basic way to submit media and or playlists! I hope you found this thread helpful, if you have any more questions or if you feel like something else needs to be explained do not hesitate to ask in the comments below! Who know's maybe this feature will be more popular than the "Promote yourself" section!

    Untill next time!
    See you! :)

    Very well explained and I like the idea of the media section, seems very similar to how I post on the Alienware Arena pages. Should help with some additional traffic flow.

    Thanks @JustJord
    Thanks for the explanation! I tried to submit a Playlist and followed the steps but i don't get the drop down menu you mention, it takes me directly to submitting normal media instead of a Playlist.

    Yea as @TwilightPrinze said playlist don't work for us right now. We can't even make playlists public & the drop down isn't there for us.
