Instead of manually creating metadata files in the Magine Pro Console you can upload all metadata as a json file directly to the S3 bucket. Read more how to connect to your bucket here.

Please follow these specifications to connect the metadata file to the correct media file and populate the desired metadata fields. 

Required fields for features

The presentation of your content is only as good as your metadata and some features like parental control need specific metadata to function.

  • Collections: To get a wide selection of collections you will need to add genre and labels to your metadata. You can compile collections with movies, shows and channels.
  • Search: This feature uses title, actors, directors and your custom tags
  • Parental control: If you want to implement this feature you will need to add an age rating to the content.

Updating the metadata after the initial upload

If you need to change the metadata that is visible on the details page of a broadcast you need to do the changes manually through the Magine Pro Console in the content section.
