How to Build your own Web Video Collection easily using WorldTV

Video Collection ImageWe’ve all come across great videos we like on YouTube, Vimeo etc. Wouldn’t it be great if you could keep a personal collection of those web videos, so you could retrieve them anytime you want?

WorldTV’s centralised library system for web videos along with its (lesser known) bookmarklet feature is simply perfect for this task. It’s quick, easy… and best of all it’s free!

Here’s how to do it…

  1. Create a channel (account) on WorldTV, and choose a name like ‘Nickys Video Collection’
  2. (Optional) Add videos automatically during the sign up process from a YouTube account, Vimeo account or by simply using keywords
  3. Once the channel is set up, and you are in the WorldTV Editor (the main screen), go to the Promote->Bookmarklets tab.
  4. Choose the ‘Add to Library’ option and follow the simple instructions to add a bookmark to Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer
  5. (Recommended) Use your browser’s bookmark features to move the bookmark to your browser toolbar so it’s readily accessible with a single click
  6. Now as you surf YouTube or Vimeo and other video sites you can click on the bookmark you created to instantly add the video to your personal video library
  7. Use WorldTV’s many other tools to embed, share or build a playlist of the web videos you collect and archive!

Good luck!

  1. Thank your for teaching us how to improve and insert easily and faster videos to any channel.

  2. Very useful thanks!

    Any estimate on when 1.5 will be out?

  3. I am lucky to see our world channels >>>Thanks a lot>> Dr.Atef

  4. Hi there. Thanks for asking. We don’t have a timeframe for 1.5 at the moment. We are working on 1.05 / 1.1 at the moment – improvements to Web Mode pages. These should be released in December.

  5. Any chance we’ll get a scheduling feature soon? It’s the only thing holding me back from going with the paid program.

  6. Hi Jim, thanks for the interest in the scheduling feature. It’s still part of our roadmap. Our focus in the immediate future is to improve the speed and resilience of the service and add more to the Web Mode features which have been popular. Scheduling is planned for v1.5 so please bear with us! :)

  7. am hopping to have my channel named “Nyamwezi TV” here i think this is my important tool

  8. Está muito bom e rápido a criação de canal do worldtv, parabens! Agora preciso de sua ajuda quanto a importação dos 151 vídeos do youtube que até o momento eu conseguí 26. O restante que é 125 eu não consigo importar. Obrigado.
