If you have not yet installed OVDLT, see the Installation article.
If you have successfully installed your OVDLT application, you should see a home page with sample data and videos similar to this:
The initial installation includes four default registered users. You do not have to login as a registered user to use the basic features of the Web site, but logging in as a registered user gives you access to additional features and privileges:
|guest||guest$ovdlt||Personalization features, such as saving favorites and searches, creating playlists, etc.|
|collections||collections$ovdlt||Create official Library collections.|
|cataloger||cataloger$ovdlt||Create, edit, delete catalog records for new and existing videos.|
|administrator||administrator$ovdlt||Customize library settings, feature videos and collections, manage users, plus cataloger privileges.|
It is strongly recommended that you change the passwords of the default users as soon as possible, especially the administrator, cataloger, and collections users. See the Managing Users article for more information.
The next step is to configure your OVDLT application for your organization. This involves:
- Defining your library-specific information, such as the site masthead title and subtitle, the site copyright statement, visual theme for the site, etc.
- Configuring the metadata elements and controlled vocabularies you will use to catalog videos in your collection
