Switching to New Music Library—FAQ

Why do I need to switch the music track in my video?

SundaySky is now integrated with Storyblocks, a stock music library with over 30,000 premium tracks in a wide variety of genres and moods. This music library is replacing our legacy library that had a limited number of tracks. Because of this upgrade and the sunsetting of the legacy library, you'll need to switch the legacy track in the video with a track from the new Storyblocks music library.

In which videos do I need to switch the track?

You'll need to switch the tracks in all of the videos that use a legacy track, both those that are in draft mode and those that you have already published.

How can I locate these videos easily?

In Your Videos, you can identify the videos in which you need to switch tracks by the caution icon that is displayed beneath them: Caution_icon_new.jpg

Is there anything that I need to do after switching the track?

Yes. You also need to republish the video.
This is why you will also see the caution icon Caution_icon_new.jpg beneath videos in which you've switched the track but haven't yet republished the video.
