Creating a Vimsy Channel
In this video we’re going to walk through the process of creating a Vimsy channel. You can do this at vimsy.co/create
Register for a Vimsy Account
To start with, you will need a Vimsy account. This is the first step in the process. Use the form and complete the instructions on screen to sign up. If you already have a Vimsy account you can log in using the button in the top right corner.
Create your channel
Now, let’s create your channel.
Start by giving your channel a name. As you type you will see a preview of your channel’s URL, which you can use to access your channel. This can be changed later in your channel settings.
You can also set the language for your channel and give it a description.
Click the “Create” button when you’re finished.
Customise your channel
On this page you can customise your channel. You can add logos to the header and footer of your channel and also change which colours your channel will use. You can change these at any time from your channel settings.
When ready, save your changes.
Integrate with third party services
The final step is integrating your channel with third party video hosting services. Some of these options are already configured.
To finish creating your channel, click “Save & Go To Channel”. You will be presented with a short introduction video that will explain how some of Vimsy’s core features work.
