There are several third-party vendors that license media content to schools districts, and often this media has specific restrictions based on the number of people that can view the media at any one time.  This feature can be considered like a “check out” system, as it restricts how many users can click to access the piece of media at the same time.

For example, if a license only allows five people to view a piece of media item at a time, enter the number 5 in the Max Viewers field.  If 5 people are watching the video, and a sixth person tries to access it, a response of “Media is not currently available,  please try back later” will be displayed.
