If you are using the HapYak Plugin for Brightcove, there's a streamlined process for adding HapYak Templates to your videos. Instead of following the normal template workflow, do this:

Add a Template to One Video

  1. In HapYak, Go to a Template, Click Configure, Add a tag, all lower case, no spaces.
  2. In Brightcove / Media, Go to the the Video Information section. Click Edit. Add the same tag.
  3. The annotations from the template will automatically appear when the viewer plays the video. (Note there may be a slight delay due to caching before they appear).

Add a Template to Many Videos

  1. In HapYak, Go to a Template, Click Configure, Add a tag, all lower case, no spaces.
  2. In Brightcove / Media, use the native Media Search features to search for all the videos you'd like to add the template to.
  3. Select all.
  4. Click "Quick Edit"
  5. Add the same tag from step 1. Click "Save".

Add a Template to All Videos

In HapYak, Go to a Template, Click Configure, Add a tag, "common"

**NOTE: This will apply the template to EVERY video published through the players that have the plugin. Removing the tag "common" from the template will remove the template.
