Setting/Changing the Order of Videos on the Channel

Setting up a channel via Direct Publisher with content brought in from Vimeo Pro. Everything works but the order in which the videos show up on the channel is random, and I'd like to order them by episode number. Is this possible? Videos are in order in the Vimeo showcase and I'd like to present them that way on my channel. Thanks!

Re: Setting/Changing the Order of Videos on the Channel

The videos will show in the order they are added to the json file (if you selected chronological order in the category setup, the only other selections are "most recent first" which will put them in backwards order as entered into the json file, or "most popular" which is what you probably have selected, since it appears to be in a random order...

Re: Setting/Changing the Order of Videos on the Channel

unfortunately @texpantravels  nothing you can do , from what i experienced with Vimeo Pro showcase feeds , you dont have access to it , so you cannot order or make any inputs into the feed generated by Vimeo Pro.

if you want to have control over your content order , tags , categories , so on  , you need to use other methods not the direct Vimeo Pro to TV channel from a showcase. 

Build a json file  , define what  , when and where to show up , so on. It might sound difficult it is not. There are quite enough programs and tools out there to help you build and ,manage your TV Feeds properly ( i use 3 of them so .... yeah it is not complicated).
