Republish a SlideTalk video with a different publishing option

SlideTalk offers 3 publishing option: BASIC is free and makes videos available on the SlideTalk website, PRO makes videos publicly available on YouTube (and therefore embeddable), and DOWNLOAD makes videos available only for private use, as the videos are not posted anywhere but made available for download as MP4 videos.
Now suppose you have used the BASIC or PRO option, but now you want to remove the video from public websites and republish it as DOWNLOAD, for your own private use, maybe on your intranet, behind a paywall or on your own YouTube or Vimeo channel. Can you do that? The anser is Yes!

How?

Go to your home page and find the video that you published as BASIC or PRO, click "Manage" next to the video preview, and in the following page select "Delete Video".
The "Delete Video" command will remove the video from the public channel and make the SlideTalk editable again. At this point you just go to the corresponding edit page and now you can select to publish the video again as DOWNLOAD.

How to effectively market your SlideTalk video using the video information

So you have made a great PowerPoint presentation and created a talking video out of it using SlideTalk. Now how to get viewers to find your video?

Title, Description and Keywords

BASIC videos have a viewer page on slidetalk.net. PRO videos have a viewer page on slidetalk.net and are also published on YouTube.
To make these pages easy to find via search engines it is of paramount importance that you use wisely the metadata fields Title, Description and Keywords.
Therefore we made it possible to provide and edit these fields at any time, both BEFORE and AFTER publishing. For PRO videos the changes will also apply to the YouTube page.

Editing Title, Description and Keywords.

To edit the Title, Description and Keywords after publishing a SlideTalk video, find the video in the list on your own homepage and click "manage":
In the page that opens, edit the Title, Description and Keywords fields:
When you are done with your edit, click on "Update Settings". The Title, Description and Keywords will be immediately updated both on the viewer page of slidetalk.net and, for PRO videos, on the corresponding video page on YouTube.

Conclusions

After updating the metadata of the video, search engines will be able to find your video by using information in the Title, Description and Keywords fields.
