If you already have a SmartVideo account, scroll down to What happens after I install?
If you do NOT, create your SmartVideo account here. Once registered, you'll be given a unique key to access the Swarmify API. This "swarmcdnkey" is required to configure your site for video delivery by Swarmify.
What happens after I install?
After installing our script into your site's header, SmartVideo will begin scanning your site for videos. If you have YouTube videos on your site, they will be automatically converted to SmartVideo.
A video can take up to 30 minutes to convert to SmartVideo depending on the length and resolution of the video file. You will know that a video has been fully converted by SmartVideo when, while hovering over the Video Acceleration icon on the player, the popup box says Video Acceleration: On
If you do not have YouTube or Vimeo videos on your site, our script will do nothing for your current videos; they will have to be manually placed in a SmartVideo tag.
No worries, it's not as difficult as it sounds 😉
1. Visit the Configuration tab in the Dashboard, follow the on-screen instructions, and copy the snippet to your clipboard.
3. Choose Page > Page Properties and paste the code in the Metadata textbox of the Page Properties window, as if you were installing Google Analytics.
4. Click OK.
And that’s it! 🎉
