    So how much would it cost to get your pre-made videos.  I always wanted to incorporate this but I don't have the time to make them.

     

    also have you had any issues when using a negative response after a selection and the app will announce who is on the clock immediately after the response.  It runs together and doesn't sound good.

    Hi Dale,

     

    So I am not affiliated with Fandraft, the NFL, or any of the content producers. I am simply packaging content readily available on Youtube for convenient use with the Fandraft app. To that end, I would not charge anything for any of this. I am in the process of prepping for our Draft in August and expect over the next two weeks to get together about 50 player videos. I will happily share these via google drive to anyone in the community. 

    Here is the link to the google drive folder which right now only has about 5 videos in it:

    As for your negative response question, I haven't played with that at all. If someone makes a dumb pick we don't need a sound effect to let them know. There is already of a river of crap coming their way verbally ;)

    I totally get why you won't accept money for these, but drop your PayPal link. That Brady video alone is worth a beer. :)

    I appreciate the effort, but a few things:

    1) I am mostly pulling from youtube videos other people created, just editing and truncating 

    2) I mostly just care about making fantasy football as a whole more awesome for everyone who participates in it, so if you guys use this and it makes your draft better that's all I need.

    3) There is probably some legal exposure if I were to actually accept any form of compensation.

    Let me know if you stumble across any good content so I can pull it. Tomorrow is the premier of NFL's top 100 for 2019 so hopefully I get some good stuff there.

    Looks like they are slowly posting the top 100, should have some good stuff to go from soon.

    Robert, these are great!    I will for sure be using some of these myself.  Thank you from the NFFL in Kansas City, est. 2001!

    Thanks for the tips.  After seeing your videos, started making some myself.  We do IDP, so been making some of those using the NFL top 100 YouTube videos.  Works like a charm,  and is kind of fun.  I've been adding the players 2018 stats, having them scroll across the bottom of the video as it plays.

    Sounds like you're putting in even more effort than I! Anything you want to/can share with the group?

    Let me know if that works.  I don't use google drive much, not sure if I have the permissions set right.

    Not sure if anyone is using these or not, but I finished the Top 100 videos and have them all uploaded.  I may put together a few more over the next week, but for the most part they are done.

    Hi all,

    Videos are awesome. I am new to FanDraft App. How can I implement the videos in the app and allocate them to the players?

    Appreciate your help.

    Hey Johannes.  Go to Setup --> Keeper Setup.  You can import the videos on the Player Image section when you select the player.

    Hi Don. Thanks.

    Ok and the video plays when the player has been selected although we do not use keepers?

    One other question/confirmation: Am I right that it is not possible that all other league members log in and create their own profile (picture, logo, song)? They need to send it to me and I need to create it in the software, right?

     

    Thanks guys

    Yes, it will play when the player is selected. 

    As far as I know, picture/logo/song has to be done by you.  Is this going to be a local draft where everyone is at the same location?  I did notice if people will be using the web to draft, the videos and profile stuff doesn't show up for them.

    Hi

     

    Great, Thanks a lot. It is a local draft and all players will be present. This year we do not use web.

    Hi all,

     

    1 further question: What if I would like to go back to the pictures and remove the videos for the players? Where do I find the pictures?

     

    Thanks

    Just go back to where you put the video in and click the minus sign in the corner.  The original picture will come back automatically. 

    As Robert stated above, I would make sure after removing any of the videos you restart the software if you are going to add in any different ones to that player.
