Metadata Definitions

This section describes the metadata attributes, each schema for each attribute.

Genre

A two level hierarchy to categorize content is supported and must be sent through as genre and sub genre through one of the mechanisms described above. A genre is required on either all videos, all integration points (e.g. each MRSS feed can have a different genre), or per Content Producer. Videos that have genres that do not match this schema will be rejected.

Please see Genres and Subgenres for a complete list of available subgenres. Requests for additional genres should be sent to your account manager.
