At the moment a metadata asset has predefined fields for title, director, cast, production year, etc. These fields are displayed in the apps and the website. Some of them like director and cast are even searchable. Sometimes you might want to add unique descriptive fields that are specific for your service only. So we added custom tags to give you more flexibility. You can e.g. come up with your own ranking system or add fields for subtitles and audio. The new fields will be searchable.
How to set up and use custom fields
If you for an example want to display to your users which subtitles are available you need to do the following:
- Add the language of the subtitle in a custom field of the metadata asset e.g. English
- Then inform us that you added this custom field and that it should be called Subtitles
We will then make sure that the new field will show up in the apps and on the website.
