The CMS Library stores all file-based media that is uploaded for use onto Layouts.
Library media can be either uploaded directly to the Library using our easy to use file upload tool or by URL.
Navigate to Media under the Library section of the menu to open the Library grid:
Uploading is achieved in two steps.
- Click Add files and select the file(s) you wish to upload.
- Click Start upload to begin the transfer of all files, alternatively click on the blue upload button next to individual files to upload individually. Once successfully uploaded, click Done.
Use the Add Media (URL) button to provide a remote URL to the file.
Xibo comes with a set of standard fonts provided by our text editor tool - CKEditor. New fonts can also be added and uploaded to the Library using the easy file upload tool. Once added the font will be available to use in the text editor.
Each Media file has a row menu with a list of actions and shortcuts that can be performed against it:
The Edit Media form allows you to make edits to the name and duration of the selected file amongst other actions.
Media can be tagged to allow for ordering and make files easier to find.
From v2.3.6, you can add an associated value for Tags without an existing predefined value. Enter the Value you wish to associate with the Tag in the Tag value field and click enter. If you do not wish to enter a Tag value, then this field can be left blank.
