To begin working with Media Manager, you must first gain access to the Media Manager console. The console is the tool used to add all content including videos, closed caption files, and metadata for all of your seasons, episodes, and assets.
Please submit a support ticket and let us know that you'd like access to the Media Manager console (see a sample support ticket). After submitting your ticket, you will receive either an email with an activation link or an email informing you of your new access permissions. If you are not automatically directed to the console, go to https://media.console.pbs.org and log in with your PBS Account. After logging in you'll be directed to the Shows page where you can begin working.

* Auto-Detect is selected by default.
