Frequently Asked Questions (Enterprise) [VE OG]
Why does the VidiEditor search not show any video results?
No item exists in VidiCore having a shape matching the ME_ProxyShapeTag configuration parameter. Try to transcode a video to the configured ME_ProxyShapeTag and see if it is found. The default shape tag is ME_proxy_mp4_360_8ch.
Check the configuration of the ME_ProxyShapeTag Metadata key value pair on me_user group in VidiCore
Ensure that at least one of the options is checked in Media Type search filter.
Why is the publish button inactive / not clickable?
The button is inactive as long as no publish configuration is made or the timeline is empty. As those depend on the system design, no default configuration is added initially.

Why does the source player not play some media items, but can play others?

The ME_ProxyShapeTag configuration does have a shape tag configured not suitable for VidiEditor streaming. Check this configuration as explained in here.
