If multiple channels are selected, the video will be uploaded to each channel, gets a dedicated video id and will be automatically assigned to the owner group of the channel.

If the owner group of the selected channels are identical, only a single video will be uploaded; otherwise, several copies of the video each with a unique video id will be stored in VideoManager Pro.
