Whitelist A Channel

By adding a channel to your personal whitelist, any time that channel uploads a video with any of your music in the Content ID system, we'll automatically release the claim as soon as it comes in. This process usually takes about half an hour from upload. Please note that private videos will not be auto-released.

Ingestion Defaults

Set the default rules for tracks you upload and anything currently on the site. If you select "Save and Scan" below, we'll run a test to see how it'll affect your tracks and show you the results before we process. Otherwise, scans are run nightly, but only process additions. If you need to use a rule to remove tracks from your site or add tracks that were previously removed, you need to "Save & Scan" it.

Ingest Default:

In lieu of other rules or settings, should current and new music be ingested into Content ID?

Publishing Default:

Should we also collect on your publishing rights?

Ownership Default:

Set where you have Content ID rights for your tracks. By default, we assume "WW" which means worldwide. Click here for country codes. Seperate with "|" pipe and precede with "-" minus to negate.
Ex. "WW|-US" means everywhere but the US. Ask for help at contentid@sourceaudio.com.

Custom Rules:

Adding rules below can modify your default settings above. For instance, if your site default is "Do Not Ingest", but you set Label A to "ingest". Then any new tracks added to that label will be added to Content Id. Rules are executed from top to bottom.
Ownership
Publishing?
Ingest?
Condition
  


CSV Import

You can upload a CSV with the tracks you want to ingest. Below are the columns you can include (capitalization is not important):
  • SourceAudio ID (required): The id of the track you want to ingest. It's included automatically in any export.
  • Ingest: Can be set to "yes" or "no". If the column is not included, we assume "yes". If the column is "no", we'll remove that track from Content ID if it's there, and it won't be added by the nightly scans.
  • Publishing: Can be set to "yes" or "no". If the column is not included, we assume "no". If the column is "no", we'll remove that track's publishing rights.
  • Ownership: Set where you have Content ID rights for your track. If the column is not included, we inherit your global setting above, and if that's not set, we assume "WW" which means worldwide. See above for details.
The other columns (title, filename, etc) will be ignored, but you can leave them in if that helps you organize.

The import will just add the tracks and settings you have in your CSV to whatever is currently in the system for your site, it will not remove anything not specifically referenced in the CSV. Save & Scan above will overwrite any settings you set with this and vice versa.

Import CSV

If run, these rules will result in the following changes:

      • Transcoding

        Transcoding is the act of converting a {$track} from one format to another. For example, a {$track} uploaded as an MP3 can be transcoded into a WAV or an AIFF automatically by the SourceAudio servers, if it is desired to offer the {$track} in these formats. The sample rate is not affected by this process. Individual {$tracks} can be transcoded on their {$track} detail page. This form allows for the transcoding of entire {$catalogs}, {$labels}, and {$albums} at once.

        Step 1: Choose What To Transcode

        Step 2: Choose Which Formats To Output

        Click on a format to include it in the transcode job. Only tracks without the specified format will be affected.

          If you only have one license choice (eg, $0.99 downloads), then the license selector won't pop up and tracks will go directly to the cart.

          Include Alts in Purchase:

          If a track with alternate versions is purchased, access to the other versions is included.

          Email Notification:

          When your clients make a purchase, the licensing contact set in your main site settings will get an email with the details.

          When your clients buy a subscription, the licensing contact set in your main site settings will get an email with the details.

          No Rollover:

          Typically, subscription credits rollover to the next month, and credits remain after subscriptions end. Check this to stop both of those.

          Allow Download Requests:

          By default, download requests are disabled by e-commerce, as we presume you'd rather they paid than ask you about it. Check to re-enable.

          Track Level Assignment

          You can assign profiles to a particular track from the track details page, or you can upload a CSV here that has "SourceAudio ID" and "Licensing Profile" columns. You can use "inherit", "none", or just use the name of the profile you want to assign. Capitalization does not matter. Previous settings will only be overwritten if there is a value. Blank will mean "unchanged" as opposed to inherit or none.

          Currently Assigned Tracks: 0

          Do you want your users to download files that are embedded with your current site metadata?
          For your convenience this will not overwrite the metadata on your original files. A new copy is created at the moment of download that includes all metadata associated to that track on your site.
          This embedded metadata can be read by iTunes, Winamp, Windows Media Player, Soundminer or any other software that can read embedded ID3 tags.
          Check the box next to each {$catalog} below for which you would like this metadata embedding feature enabled.
          To download samples of embedded files vs. non-embedded files, just go to any track detail page in secure (edit) mode and click the appropriate text link next to your file format download icons.
          Save
          You don't have any {$catalogs} eligible for injection.
          You can choose which fields appear in your embedded ID3 tags when people download your files.
          Once you create some embedding profiles, assign them to Music Access Profiles or use them for File Deliveries.

          Admins always download using the SourceAudio Default profile.

          You haven't added any custom fields yet. Use the panel on the right to set some up!

          Custom fields let you add metadata to your tracks that SourceAudio doesn't support by default.

          For example, we don't have a place to display instruments that might be featured in a track. So if you wanted to display that, you could come here and add a "Featured Instruments" custom field. Then when you edit tracks, you'll see an editable "Featured Instruments" field. You'll also be able to use Rules to set instruments.
          {name}
          {name}
          Metadata can only be added for tracks that are already published.

          Tracks are matched on SourceAudio ID, filename, or title, in that order. If you have SourceAudio ID and filenames, we'll match on ID and update your filenames. If you just have filenames,we'll use your filenames to match rows to tracks and your filenames will not be changed.

          This is a good thing! All the tracks listed here will get new data when you finish importing.These tracks all got new metadata!

          tracks in this spreadsheet already have work numbers export list

          This is a good thing! They don't need new data.Data for these tracks did not need to be imported imported

          Unable to determine which tracks matched rowsCould not match tracks export list

          This means that we couldn't figure out what tracks on the site you meant for these rows to provide data for. Are your filenames/titles correct, both on the site and in the CSV?
