Turning a regular video into powerful content and a lead gen tool is easy with Vidyard. One of the most popular ways to do this is by adding Events to your video.
Default Events allow you to quickly and easily add the same Event to all the players across your whole group.
Remember - unlike Default Settings (which affect only new players), Default Events are added to all your players, including new players and players you have already created.
Note: If you want to add different events to each player, you can do that at the player level.

Default Events are added to all your players, even ones you have already created. This means some players will have Default Events, and Events you set on the individual player.
