Video Schema Markup Google

Hello,

I am new to Ooyala so please be patient.

Our SEO folks would like us to use JSON schema markup for our video. We are using WordPress with the Ooyala plugin.

Can anyone direct me to the most efficient way to implement; or at least to find the data that I would need for each video? Or perhaps I just need to create a video sitemap?

Thank you

Hi Sandyp,

 

Apologies for the late reply, I believe the MRSS feed might help you on getting the Player data into the Markup, with the MRSS feed you can extract metadata from the video or videos in your library.

I am leaving below some of our documentation for the MRSS feeds for more detailed information:

Hope you find this information useful.

Thank you

Hi sandyp,

 

Thank you for posting on our Ooyala community, in order to provide the most accurate I will need confirmation on the following items:

Are you using Player V3 or V4?

Is your goal is to customize the player appearance and functionality or ways to embed the player in your website?

 

Thank you, best regards,

Ooyala Technical Support

Re: Video Schema Markup Google

Hi,

Its player version 4.

I do not need to change the way the video displays or plays, they are
working perfectly. But I do need to display the video information via Google
JSON schema markup: see
https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool

I could add the markup to each post, but we have a lot of video clips and I
was wondering if there is another way.

I'm very new to Ooyala, so I hope this makes some sense.

I do appreciate you answering my post ppadilla.

Thank you,

Sandy

At hand, I haven't found anything for Markup Schema but let me dig a little deeper into this and get back to you with some more information.

Re: Video Schema Markup Google

More clarification :)

I guess what I am looking for is a way to generate the markup, or at least the part that I can get from Ooyala.

Thanks again
