Video Collections

Video collections are top-level entities in Gumlet. You can use them to organize different types of videos or can also use them to separate development and production videos and credentials.

A collection can have unlimited number of vidoes and depending on your plan, you can create 2 or more collections. Each collection has its own settings like player customizations and security settings which are applied to all videos in a collection.

While creating a collection, you will be asked for details which are described in this document.
