Titles Over Video

I swear I saw a setting for this at some point, but it's possible it was removed. Where in Direct Publisher is the setting for putting the video title on top of the thumbnail?

Re: Titles Over Video

I have never been able to get this to work, nor have I seen an option for it.

It definitely shows in the their announcement images for Direct Publisher: http://newsroom.roku.com/press-release/company-usa/roku-introduces-direct-publisher
Specifically the FailArmy and Mashable channel images.

Re: Titles Over Video

The Rolling Stone channel has it, and that thing looks like it is right out of Direct Publisher. I thought it was in Layout in the Channel settings, but all that is there now is the Hero row option.

I'll reply here if I figure it out.

Customize your categories and you will find the option.

Re: Titles Over Video

I know the option is there but does it actually work?

I just tested on my test channel and it is working perfectly.

Re: Titles Over Video

Does it work on each individual video or just the categories?

Each individual video.

Ah. Got it. I knew I saw it somewhere. So you can't pull your categories from the feed, you have to use the online customization. Wish they had a switch in the DP feed.

Re: Titles Over Video

I was able to get this working well by setting the categories in the feed and using the custom categories option. If you've already created them from the feed, it seems to take those.

Seems like a switch in the feed would work as well - not sure why they have this as a ui component.
