If you plan on changing your hosting or CDN provider, migrating a large video library could prove to be a genuinely time-consuming process. Having to change hundreds of URLs manually does not sound fun and neither does having to get a 3rd party database tool. With FV Player Migration Wizard, it takes just a couple of clicks in FV Player settings.
FV Player Migration Wizard helps you change the paths to your videos as a batch operation.
To find the FV Player Migration Wizard, go to Settings -> FV Player -> Tools and click Migration Wizard.
Migrating a part, or all of your video library on a live page is an invasive and stressful change. This Wizard is designed to keep an eye on you at all times and help ease down the stress.
