Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Vilynx?

    Vilynx makes it easy to manage your videos and increase the engagement of your viewers. With Vilynx you can:

    • Create an engaging summary for your videos to help your viewers (and you!) find out what's inside your video.
    • Add rich Metadata to your contents to enable intelligent video recommendations and search.
    • Post summaries of your videos to social media to drive traffic to your site.
  • What browser and settings are required for Vilynx?

    Vilynx runs in web browser on your mobile devices as well as PC or Mac. We currently support Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.

  • Does Vilynx work on mobile devices?

    Yes. You can use Vilynx from any platform you want. Vilynx summaries as well as the Vilynx Dashboard are optimized for Mobile.

  • How long does it take to get a Vilynx summary?

    Usually just a few minutes, though it can take a bit more time for longer videos. All processing takes place in the background, meaning you can do other things while we work on your summary. You’ll receive a notification when the summary is complete.

  • Can I make my own summaries?

    Absolutely. With Vilynx you can generate summaries with as many as sixteen video clips. Summaries are generated automatically, though you can easily edit your summaries by adding or removing video clips with the Clips Editor. Titles can be added in the Clips Editor, and you can control where playback begins for your clips with the Section Timing editor.

  • Which video formats does Vilynx support?

    Vilynx supports the vast majority of video formats in use today, but we do not support WMV in an Advanced System Format (ASF) container. If you do find a video that gives us trouble, please let us know.

  • Can I embed summaries to my blog or website?

    Yes, with Vilynx you can easily add summaries to your blog or website. You can embed the Vilynx Player using an iframe or use our one-line-of-code library to have the summaries magically appear. See developer page.

  • Can I see how many people are watching my videos and which parts are most engaging?

    Yes. Your Vilynx subscription also gives you access to detailed analytics for your videos. With Vilynx Analytics you can easily see how many viewers saw your video’s summary, which clips they visited when watching your video and information about their location down to the city level.
