Create Custom Media
As an Owner or Admin of an account, you can add your own custom media to a channel(Owner) or training posts(Owner & Admin) to make your content available to your organization and add to the hundreds of existing training videos that they have access to within RightNow Media. With this feature, you can embed individual videos, or even live streams from these supported platforms - Vimeo, YouTube, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Livestream and SoundCloud.
To begin, simply click the "Create Custom Media" option in the "My Profile" menu to open the custom media window.
The Custom Media window allows you to embed from popular sources like YouTube, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Livestream.com, Vimeo and Soundcloud by pasting in the url or embed code into the "Embed" field. It will attempt to save a thumbnail based on your upload, or you have the option to upload your own image to serve as the thumbnail for your media. See below for more specific instructions on how to embed code from the available third parties.

Simply create a custom media channel (1), or visit one that you've already created (2), and click on the "Create Custom Media" option to open the Custom Media window. Once created, it will automatically append the new content to the beginning of your channel (3).
