    You probably need to delete videos from time to time because they are no longer relevant, you need storage space, or for other reasons. To delete your video content in your Dacast account, you will need to move the videos to your “Trash” folder and then select ‘Empty Trash’. 

    To do so, we invite you to review the step by step walkthrough below:

    Move your video(s) to the trash folder

    1. Once in your Dacast account, click on ‘Videos’ on the left menu of your dashboard:

    1. If you wish to delete multiple videos simultaneously, you can Mark/Unmark content by clicking the checkboxes on the left side of your VOD list.
      When satisfied with the selection, select ‘Delete’ in the “Bulk Actions” options:

    Empty the trash folder

    All deleted videos will stay on the Trash folder for 14 days upon deletion; they will then be permanently deleted. You can also manually empty the Trash folder to immediately free up storage space.

    1. To access the Trash folder, click on the “Folders” option, available on your left side menu as shown below:
