Videos Section

Introducing Videos. Videos is a way to import any kind of videos that you want. When they get imported, you have all the tools you need to dress them up to look great in your library.

Video imports are added to your library separatly, just like Movies and TV Shows. They can be found in their own section. Videos can participate in all of the same fun Channels features like Virtual Channels and Library Collections, but without mixing in with Up Next or the rest of your library.
