Proclaim offers you a convenient way to organize, share, and access your media files within the app using the Media Browser. Images and videos uploaded to your group are instantly available to others, saving you and your congregation valuable time creating your presentation.
To access the Media Browser in Proclaim, select Media at the top of the screen in the main app window, when select Browse Media. To view content that is currently available to you (including uploads you've made to your group), select Owned in the top left corner of the Media Browser, or view All items to include relevant store items.
Import media by clicking Import files... or adding it your presentation. Search through your media items using the Breadcrumb Bar, or browse through media series by thumbnails. Sort your results by popularity (all-time usage), relevance (how well it matches your search), or by what's trending (popular media in the last seven days). The slider in the top right corner of the Media Browser allows you to resize the thumbnails so you can comfortably browse few, or many, media series at once.
To take a closer look at any item, try selecting it in the Media Browser. The right-hand pane will allow you to conveniently view details about each piece of media, such as the tags, duration, and series from which it came.
You can also see how many times people have taken it On Air and how the community has rated it.
Note: Community ratings appear in blue only after enough people have rated the media. Add your own rating in yellow to let everyone know what you thought of it. Once you've added a rating, you will only be able to see yours.
Add any Media Browser item directly into your presentation by selecting one of the options from the list:
If you want to change an existing service item, click Apply as background to just use the image, or use Apply as Smart Media if you want the text styling as well.
Add your favorite media items to boards so you can easily find them when you need them.
The store contains thousands of media items produced in house as Proclaim Pro Media, or from our many media partners at Graceway, CMG, Freebridge, Playback Media, Igniter, Dan Stevers, and more! You can purchase all of your subscriptions right through the Proclaim Media Browser, or link your accounts to access this media.
Did you know? Certain items from our media partners are available a-la-carte, so you only have to pay for what you use.
And don't forget: there's plenty of free media from our Ministry Channels available in the Media Browser too! If you're not already familiar with Ministry Channels, they offer hours of free videos and unique images for your congregation. You can find them on the lefthand side of the Media Browser directly above the color facets.
Can't find any media items that suit your interests? Create your own Smart Media templates using a great photo you took or a design your team put together. Then, publish them to the Community so that others can use them, too.
