How to Use Films on Demand

Create Custom Segments

The Custom Segment tool allows users to select any portion of a film as a custom segment. The custom segments can be added to a playlist or linked to in D2L.

  • Go to Films on Demand and find the film or film segment you want to use
  • Click on the "Custom Segment" tab beneath the viewing window
  • Login to Films on Demand (if you haven't already created an account, you'll have the option to create one)
  • Choose the segment start and end time (use the start and stop buttons or enter the Start and End times in the boxes)
  • Enter a title and description for the custom segment and click the "Create Segment" button
  • The Custom Segment will now appear in the Segment tab to the right of the viewing window (you'll see buttons for Standard Segments and Custom Segments when you are logged into your account)
  • Segments may be viewed in the player by clicking on them or they may be deleted by clicking on the trash can icon that appears next to the Custom Segment title
  • Segments may be shared using the Playlist and Embed tabs that appear beneath the viewing window

If you're having trouble with this process, there is a tutorial on creating Custom Segments that may help.
