When changing any of the publish settings you’ll be asked to ‘Save and Apply’ the change. Clicking this option will directly commit the change to your project and online video, if it’s published.

 

Basic info on Publish Settings:

These fields determine the text that will appear on the published project link and embed.

Title – Your title is extremely important because it appears on your published page, Insights Dashboard, and all your social networks. The default title will be your project name.

Author – you can choose your own name, nickname, or client name. The default name will be your Eko username.

Description – You can give the viewer more information about your project. This text will also appear when you share your video to social networks. By default, these fields are blank.

Tags – select suggested tags or add your own to help viewers find your video. You can use as many tags as you want.

 

Privacy Settings:

Choose a privacy setting to determine who can view your published project and where it can appear.

Private – allows you to set a password to prevent others from watching your project.

Advanced Settings:

Autoplay project by default - Check this box if you’d like your project to play automatically once it loads, and uncheck it if you’d like the user to click play to start.

Generate spark from project - Checking this box allows you publish the entire project as an embeddable Spark.

Override default config - This allows you to check out your project to a github repository.

 

Sizing and Aspect Ratio - Since videos can be embedded in containers with any aspect ratio, you may need define how your project scales for optimal viewing. To do this, you have two options:

  • Pan’n’Scan: With Pan’n’Scan, you can define how much of the original image can be cropped (horizontally and vertically) to force full-screen viewing.
  • Boxing: With boxing, black boxes are applied around the video frame to fit the aspect ratio of the player window.

You can read more about the different scaling options on our Developer Docs page on Sizing and Aspect Ratio.
