The page discusses how to use SPINTAX and Wildcard tags within the software to ensure each video contains unique content. Please note: Only the Video Title and Video Description fields are supported at this time.


SPINTAX / Text Spinning

Text Spinning allows us to create videos with unique content. SPINTAX tags can be used anywhere in the Video Description and Video Title fields any number of times. When a video is uploaded or a video is updated at a later date, the SPINTAX tags are randomized each time and applied to the uploaded video.

Example:

Video Title: Hello my name is [Sam|Dave|Ashley|Tony|Barbara] Video Description: Thanks for [watching|viewing]! I hope you [enjoyed|liked|subscribed to] my video! Stay tuned for [more great stuff|great things to come].

So when this video is uploaded (or updated later using the Video Database), a random tag will be selected within each Spin Tag. A Spin Tag uses square brackets to enclose a finite number of possible outcomes (Separated by a pipe | character).


Wildcard Tags

The software currently supports these wildcard tags. These can be placed anywhere in the Video Title or Video Description fields. When this video is uploaded (or updated later using the Video Database), these tags are replaced with the actual data for the video.

Example: [VIDEOPRIVACY] - The privacy setting for the video: Public, Private or Unlisted [VIDEOCATEGORY] - The category name for the video: Comedy, Entertainment, Pets & Animals etc [VIDEOTAGS] - A comma separated list of the tags for the video [VIDEOFULLFILENAME] - The complete full filename of the video [VIDEOFILENAME] - The video filename [VIDEOCREATIONTIME] - The creation time of the video in the following example format: 19 February 2015


Warning

The Video Title field has a maximum limit of 100 characters. Please ensure that your text including any possible wildcard outcomes do not exceed this limit. The Video Description field has a maximum limit of 5000 characters. Please ensure that your text including any possible wildcard outcomes do not exceed this limit.
