5. Content Discovery
The quickest way to access content is by browsing by tournament or event. You can first enter the “main category” such as the FIFA World Cup or the FIFA U-20 World Cup and then select the specific tournament you are interested in.
When you are within the results of a specific tournament, you can filter your results on the left side of the screen. Filtering allows you to drill down within the results to arrive at the content you are most interested in.
For example, if you have chosen the FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina 2023, the values available in each of the filters, are the possible choices for this specific tournament. If you are interested in the rushes, you would then click on “rushes” within the Feed Type filter.
You are always free to use the search bar on the Home Screen.
All words written in the search bar will be searched across all fields in the entire database. The more words written will return more ‘noise’ or irrelevant results.
Place more than 1 word within quotation marks (example: “France v Belgium“) so the database will search the exact phrase entered.
Use Boolean search AND OR and NOT to reduce the amount of search results
(Example 1: Germany AND England) (Example 2: Germany NOT 2006)
Annotations are timecode-based metadata (also known as logs) that bring the user to specific moments within a video. They can be very useful to discover exact moments that took place.
The annotations are found under the “annotations” tab to the right of the video player.
The search bar may be useful when searching through annotations.
Once you have filtered your results to reduce the number of choices, you can use the search bar to search for specific terms within the annotations.
For example, (returning to our example of rushes above) -- once you have selected the rushes from the FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina 2023, you can search for the term “goal” in the search bar, and all videos within the rushes category that have been logged with a “goal” will be returned.
Once your search term has returned results, you will need to “jump to a specific point of interest” within a video file.
First, you will need to choose the list view of your results by clicking on the list icon on the top right of your results page.
Then you will need to click on “jump to point of interest” on the specific record you would like to see
This will bring you to a specific moment within the record based on the search term you used.
A record is comprised of a video file, metadata, annotations, and related records. Each video file, or media asset, is accompanied by metadata, which can be found under the “metadata” tab to the right of the video player. The metadata describes the media asset including information about the media asset itself, the event it is part of, the home and away teams, players, results, geographical information, and eventually production information. The Archives team is continually updating and improving the metadata which will help to improve the search and filter results as well.
Each media asset also contains information about the audio tracks. If you click on the thought bubble under the video player, the audio tracks available will be displayed.
Another useful way of accessing content is by browsing the “related records” tab to the right of the video player. The related records contain all the media assets that were part of the same event such as a match.
Once you have found a record you are interested in, you might want to select relevant scenes for download. We call this action “Create clip”
In the search result, click a record title or the preview image to open the video player for viewing.
At the bottom right of video player, click the scissors icon to create a clip
Move the in- and out-points (yellow vertical bars) to your needs to select the right scene.
Hint: you can rename a clip title in the clips list (at the bottom) by clicking on the clip title.
You can create multiple clips out of one record. Click “+ New Clip” to create another one.
Before you move to the next record for clipping you need to save these clips by adding them a “collection”.
Collections are used to collect clips in one place. You can always access your collections by choosing “Collections” in the main menu.
If you want to order the content of your collection for download, click the vertical ellipsis ⁝ (three dots) and choose “enquire”. Fill out the Order Enquiry Form and click “Send”.
A FIFA Media Sales Team representative will review your collection and will get back to you with a download link.
Once you’ve received the download link via e-mail, you are free to download your items according to your chosen video format.
