While rewatching the session videos, we took notes to recapture the brands' current practices and needs. There were several common functionalities across the brands: abiltiy to embed the MPX videos and images, set a video as the banner, make URL alias, selecting related shows, etc.
As expected, Bravo had the most extensive functionality and use cases on blogs. They can embed not only the images, videos, and external embeds, but also media galleries, playlists, and cast biographies as well. They were also highly focused on making the post appearing in all the appropriate places without having to create multiple promos and driving traffic to different posts.
Other entertainment brands also used blog posts to embed images and videos, but had less structure in embedding the media. USA is still using raw HTML editor to include the embed code, which is difficult for the editors to use.
