Multiple/Bulk Video Move

Once in the folder, you can hover over any video and click the check box of one or multiple videos

After selecting the video(s) you want to move, you can click the Move button at the top of the folder.

Then choose the folder you wish to move the content to via the drop down.


and select Move to complete the move to the new folder.
