Media (images and videos)

Activity Messenger allows you send images and videos in SMS and email messages. The Media manager is available via the Templates top-level menu.

The Media manager contains 5 tabs. The two first are Your images and Your videos. These are media assets hosted by Activity Messenger. The other 3 are integrations with third-party platforms. Pexels provides royalty free stock photos. You can connect your Youtube channel or Vimeo account in order to make videos available in Activity Messenger.


# Your images

Your images are all images you upload when using Activity Messenger (i.e. building Templates). You may upload new images by clicking on the upload button.

Click on an image to see it full size. You can modify the name and description of the image. Click on the Send button to send the image by SMS or email. Click on the Delete button to remove it from the Media manager.

Deleted images are in fact archived. They are no longer available to send. However if a previous email/SMS you have sent contains that image, it will still be visible by the user.


# Your videos

Your videos are your training or marketing videos that you want to share with participants or prospects. If you run Online classes for example you can upload recordings. Activity Messenger even allows you to remove idle time by clipping the video. You can also brand videos by adding a watermark of your logo. Your videos are available to send by SMS or email.

Videos have unique URLs that are easily recognizable. They use the Activity Messenger's short URL scheme. For example https://am.lol/v/aAH7a99.


# Uploading a video

Click on upload to add a new video. Choose a file from your computer or drag and drop a file from your desktop. You can specify the name, the description and the recording date/time of the video.

You can also clip the begining of the video by specifying the start time. Toggle the Watermark option to let Activity Messenger add a watermark of your logo. It will appear at the bottom right of your video.

Editing a video can take several minutes. If you clip the video or add a watermark, your video will take 10 to 30 minutes to process. Once done it will appear at the top of the list.


# Managing videos

Click on a video to play and manage it. You can modify the name, the description and the recording date/time of the video. Click on the Send button to send the video by SMS or email. Click on Delete to remove the video from the Media manager.

Deleted videos are in fact archived. They are no longer available to send. However if a previous email/SMS you have sent contains that video, it will still be visible.

You may also clip idle time at the begining of the video. Click on Clip video and drag the time cursor. Then click on Apply and Activity Messenger will create a new video.

Editing a video can take several minutes. Clipping a video will take 10 to 30 minutes to process depending on the length. Once done it will appear at the top of the list.


# Pexels

The Pexels tab contains stock photos from Pexels. They are free photos shared by talented creators. By default Activity Messenger filters for sport photos. You may enter a different search term to be more specific. For example soccer, tennis, swim or kids.

You may also use images in HTML Templates you build. Create a block and click on the Media button. Then choose Pexels. You may search for a specific sport or theme to find a stock photo of your liking. It will be inserted in your template.

# Vimeo videos

If you have published Vimeo videos, you can set your Vimeo user URL on the Social & Integrations tab on the Organization information page. Public vidoes will automatically appear on the Media Youtube tab. They will become available when you send an email or SMS.
