Video Comments

Follow

Ensemble Video Version 5.6 and above allows you to easy add video comments to cultivate discussions on your videos and live streams.  Additionally, you can get direct feedback from your viewers, answer their questions, and overall create a community and conversation around your videos. Any video owners or authenticated viewers can use comments for adding an afterthought, a clarification, or side conversation. Of course, some comments are brilliant, and some… are not. The good news is, there are a ton of options that help content administrators to edit, moderate or delete comments. Video comments must be enabled to be added and viewed by anyone watching the video. Lastly, Live Stream video comments will be saved for Live Streams that were recorded.

Open Comments Panel

Click on the Comments icon to open the comments panel for the video or live stream.
