Publishing Video Content

In Hearsay Social, you can publish and schedule video content from your suggested content library, as well as upload your own original video if enabled for your organization.

 

Publishing Suggested Video Content

To share a video from your suggested content library:

  1. Navigate to your Content Library by choosing Content from your navigation and choosing Posts from the drop-down menu.
  2. You can filter your library to only see video content by navigating to the Type field and check-marking Video.
  3. Select a video you wish to watch by clicking the post and a pop-up window will appear where you can watch and listen to the video. If you’re unable to hear audio, ensure that the sound icon is set to “On”.
  4. Afterwards, click Accounts and choose which of your connected social networks you wish to publish the video to.
  5. If you want to schedule the video for a later date, click Post Time where you have the option to choose a date from your calendar as well as customize the time selection to a specific hour or minute.
  6. When ready, click Publish and Hearsay will begin preparing your video. Once the video has uploaded and finished processing, Hearsay will notify you via email and will provide a link to where the video is located on your social account.

 

Publishing Original Video Content

To publish your own original video content:

  1. Click Content from the navigation bar and click Posts from the drop-down menu.
  2. Next, click New Post in the top-right corner.
  3. In the canvas window that appears, click Add Video and select the video from your computer. As a best practice, ensure that your videos are saved in a .mp4 or .mov format and are less than 1 GB in size.
  4. Once selected, Hearsay will begin uploading and processing your video. Depending on how big your video file is and the speed of your internet connection, this process may take several minutes to complete. Make sure to keep the window open or minimized in the background to allow the video to fully upload and process.
  5. Once your video has finished processing, you can click the Play button in the canvas window to view it. If you’re unable to hear audio, ensure that the sound icon is switched to on.
  6. After viewing, compose the message that will accompany the video in the Caption field at the top.
  7. Next, title the video in the Title field, located to the right of the video.
  8. Afterwards, click Accounts and choose which of your connected social networks you wish to publish the video to.
  9. If you want to schedule the video for a later date, click Post Time where you have the option to choose a date from your calendar as well as customize the time selection to a specific hour or minute.
  10. When ready, click Publish and Hearsay will begin uploading your video to the social network. Once the video has uploaded, Hearsay will include View Post links for each of your networks. If you click one and see that the video isn’t there yet, have no fear, the social network received your video, is currently processing it, and will display it at that link within a few minutes.
