Video can be a very important engagement tool when positioned correctly. Your video content can be featured in a variety of ways, such as in a section of your mobile app, the entirety of a TV app, or the spotlight of a social media post. MAZ makes it simple to bring your video content into your Content dashboard with either mRSS feeds, or through one of our direct integrations, such as JW Player.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Only manual playlists will import to MAZ from JW Player.
