Contents:
1. Connect your blog post feed URL to Vidyou
2. Get started with Vidyou ready-made video templates
3. Generate & automate
In this tutorial, we will learn how to automate video creation when you publish a new blog post on your Medium account.

Example video:
1. Connect your blog post feed URL to Vidyou
There are 2 ways to connect your content feed to Vidyou.
1. You can your RSS feed URL
2. You can use a spreadsheet as a feed source.
To connect your Medium account to Vidyou, you need to obtain the RSS feed URL for your Medium account. With your Medium RSS feed URL, you can view the latest stories on your Medium profile page feed.

Profile page RSS feed:
For users' RSS feed, for example:
medium.com/@username or username.medium.com, type in "/feed/" in the format:
medium.com/feed/@username or username.medium.com/feed
Example: https://medium.com/feed/@heated or https://heated.medium.com/feed

Medium publications
For publication feed, for example: medium.com/publication-name, type in "/feed/" before the publication name:
medium.com/feed/publication-name
Example: https://medium.com/feed/heated

Custom domain Medium publication
For custom domain publication feed, for example: https://entrepreneurshandbook.co/, then add "/feed" to the end of the URL.
customdomain.com/feed
Example: https://entrepreneurshandbook.co/feed
Click on the feeds section on the Vidyou platform and paste the feed URL link. In this way, your feed source will be connected to the Vidyou system.
3. Step of setting up the campaign for automatic video creation
In this step, by choosing your video template, we start to ensure that the videos are created automatically.

First, we start by clicking on the "Use a feed" field.

After typing the campaign name in the campaign section, we select our feed source defined from the feed field.
Select "All Products" in this field. You can look at the Custom Segment creation in more detail in the help section.
In this step, you can choose what size you want your videos to be. If you choose HD format, all product videos will be created in HD format. For example, when you choose Square and Vertical, all your videos are created separately in square and vertical formats.
Map your data feed
We will configure the feed data in this step.
For mapping, select your title column and image URL column from your feed.
In the next step we choose a music for our videos.
That's it! Now it's time to automate video creation
Now we can watch and download our videos from the dashboard. Since your data source is connected to Vidyou, the system will automatically generate a video for each new blog posts you add to your feed. You can access these videos from the dashboard after about 1 minute.
Set up trigger
Every time you make a new post, Vidyou will automatically generate a new video for you.

In order not to forget to automate, you can have Vidyou check your data source on a minute, daily, weekly basis from the "Auto-updates" section. For example, when you select "every minute", Vidyou checks your feed every minute and automatically generates a video if you have added a new blog posts, or updates the previously created video if you have changed the price of a product.
