Automatic AP Video matching - HELP!

Lindy Bazner 3 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 3 years ago 3
Now that AP Video matching is working, we are in a fix...

Shouldn't AP Video matching only work with AP syndicated articles that are given an 'AP' flag? We are seeing them show up for our local stories as well.

So, that being asked; is there a way to disable 'matching' for certain stories? Can you add a Custom Property in an article asset (like video_matching=false) to disable the automatic addition of the AP video player in that article?

We encountered something yesterday that a local story is getting random videos that have NOTHING to do with the topic; plus that can get hairy if there is inappropriate video/B-roll advertising that plays before a story depending on its topic.

Lindy this is not a TN issue the code on the article pages are from NDN. Also AP matching is not working NDN stopped supporting what TownNews put in place without notice to BH Media or TownNews. They are switching to NDN Wire but that is not up and working yet as there were issues with how NDN was scraping our sites that came through as attacks on TownNews backend so NDN is making a new scrapper. As for the issue of videos showing up where they are not suppose to be that would be something you can control in the NDN admin for your property or you would contact NDN and they can assist if that is not available to you.
