  • Enable/disable player options (autoplay, default HD, play button, sharing page, whitelist embed domain, etc.)
  • Resize players
  • Delete players/videos
  • Push players/videos to YouTube

Accessing the Asset Manager

In the main menu, click Content, then All Assets.
Note: If you do not see the option, you can install it in the Feature Store.
