Creating an Asset

To create an asset in the Dashboard, follow the few steps below:

  1. Log in to your InPlayer Merchant account and proceed to the Assets tab.
    https://dashboard.inplayer.com/assets
  2. Click on the +Add New button. 
  3. Select the Video asset type.
  4. Click on Wowza.

This will open the asset creation window where you will be able to modify the look and feel of your asset, add pricing and integrate the selected video from your Wowza account.
Before continuing forward, make sure to give your new asset a Name in the top-left corner.

Modifying the asset

The asset creation window contains four sections.

Description

In the Description section, you can give your asset a title, description, preview image and change the text on the Buy button. We suggest advertising the price directly on the buy button wherever possible.

Price Options

In the price options section, you can add and remove multiple prices and select from a range of currencies.

The Asset

The third section is where you will choose the Video, so please enter the Video ID from your Wowza account, which you can find by following the first section of this guide:


How to find Video ID

Login to your Wowza Account and proceed to Livestream section, where all events are located. Choose the desired event (video) and the video will be shown in the Overview section.
Under the parameters of the event (video) there is a Player Embed Code where the Video ID is stored, as presented below:

Additional Information

This field is not used for the Brightcove integration and can be skipped altogether.

Once you have done the entire modifications click on the Save button, located in the top-right corner.


Embedding the asset

Once you have created your Ooyala asset, it’s time to embed it on your website and start selling.

To get the asset embed code, click on the action button of the asset you’ve just created and locate the button in the top right-hand corner.

We also advise that you should use the Paywall V2, which is an updated, more optimized and modern version of the V1.

Here, you can also choose your Branding theme by selecting it from the drop-down menu, as presented below.

Copy and Paste the InPlayer’s JavaScript and CSS files in the <head> of your website, then copy and paste the Embed Code in the <body> section of your website.

You will see the paywall show up on your website and you are will be ready to start your digital monetization journey.
