Navigating the Ensemble Video Interface


After you've logged in to Ensemble, you enter the main landing page, where you can edit your profile, navigate to other areas, manage your content, and log out.

After logging in to Ensemble Video, you will see the navigation pane in the left column, and the Media Library in the main column:


If your institution has implemented the Ensemble Video Portal, and you have chosen the Portal for your landing page, you will not immediately see the tabs when you log in. Simply navigate to your Media Library, using the Media Library icon at the top of the Portal page, to see them.

Editing your Profile

To edit your profile, click on your username at the top-right corner of the interface, and click the Profile button. From there, you can edit your Profile, change your Landing Page, and enter a new Password


Exploring the Navigation Pane

The Navigation Pane provides access to all areas of the Ensemble Interface. It contains five tabs:

  • Media Library – Add, edit, delete, copy, and search video content.
  • Shared Library – View and publish videos shared to your library by other users within your implementation of Ensemble Video
  • Playlists – Define and manage Playlists and YouTube channels where you will make your video content available to external viewers.
  • Live Stream – Create and record live video streams
  • Administration – Customize content settings, and set video sharing permissions.

To hide the Navigation Pane, click the icon at the top left of the interface. Click the button again to restore the interface to normal.

The three fields at the top of the interface display the current Institution, Organization, and Library.
