Video

With Zigmos you’ll be able to integrate videos from Youtube, Podcast and Vimeo. If you want to integrate a business video gallery, we recommend creating a Youtube or Vimeo channel in which you’ll upload all of the business’s videos.
You can create a thematic gallery too from other sources than the store (for example, a fashion video gallery for a trendy bar).
Here is how it works, it’s quite simple:
Build and Manage your Mobile Apps

1. YOUTUBE

Begin by giving a name to your gallery. If you create several galleries, users will be able to select the one they want to watch:

 

native apps

 

 

 

Then, in the “search” field, what you’re going to enter depends on what type of search you’re are going to select:

CREATE A GALLERY WITH ONLY THE STORE VIDEOS:

You already have created the store channel on Youtube and uploaded the videos on this channel. Let’s suppose this Youtube channel is called “RockCafé”, here is how you create the gallery:
Enter the name you want for your video gallery and then the name of the Youtube channel in the “search” field. Then choose “Channel” for “Type”:

the store channel on Youtube

 

 

 

CREATE A THEMATIC VIDEO GALLERY:

Enter the name you want for your video gallery, the keyword you want to search for in the “search” field, and choose “Search” in “Type”:

 

your video gallery

 

 

 

Here is the result:

If you want to add another gallery, just click on and repeat the process above.
2. PODCAST
You can also integrate videos from podcasts. To do this, you have to enter the name of your video gallery and the URL address of your video.

3. VIMEO

If you want to add a channel you have to enter the ID of the channel in the “search” field and select “Channel” in the “type” select box.
You can find the ID of the channel at the end of the channel URL. For example, for this channel:
https://vimeo.com/channels/579789 you just have to enter “579789″.
For the other types of choices (User, Group and Album), it is the same process for Channel. Just enter the ID that reads at the end of the URL. For example to import all the videos of this user:
https://vimeo.com/user34185856
enter “user34185856″ in the “search” field and select “user” for type.

Custom Page

Zigmos gives you a wide choice of features to put your products and activity forward.
A custom page allows you to enlighten your business in numerous ways. You can write an article with a picture or not, you can publish a photo gallery and you can publish a video directly on this page.
For instance, a custom page gives you the opportunity to create pages as seen below:

 

application development

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

app dev

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s see how you can create a page such as these. First, you need to create a new custom page:

custom page apps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then you must name your new page (here it will be Our Activities).
A custom page is made up of independent blocks. Thus you can create as many blocks as you want in the same page (in the example page “Our Activities” there are three blocks: one about golf, one about tennis – which are both text sections – and one about the lake which is an image section).

1. TEXT SECTIONS:

Here, we will create the first section, which is dealing with golf. To do this, click on “Text”.

text applications

 

A new text document appears and you can write your article in it.

service mobile

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, insert the picture we want in this section. To do that, click on the icon which is circled in red. This icon appears

add picture apps

 

and allows you to insert your picture.

 

When this one has been inserted, you can act on its alignment and its size:

Thus you obtain this result:

creation picture app

 

 

 

To obtain the section concerning tennis, click again on

 web apps business

 

and follow the process we have seen. But you must act on the alignment which must be on the right and not on the left. You can create as many sections as you want (custom pages are made up of independent blocks).
MORE:
You can also add in your text element a link to a website or a phone number. To do this, click on:

Android and iPhone apps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This appears:
