Thanks for your help . I am a newbie in silvertripe so it would be nice if you can answer further like i had already the video module
class VideoAdmin extends ModelAdmin {

private static $managed_models = array('Video');
private static $url_segment = 'video';
private static $menu_title = 'Video';


HOw can i add getCMSValidator to validate the video title based on the following DataObject

class Video extends DataObject {

private static $db = array(
'VideoTitle' => 'Varchar(255)',
'VideoDescription' => 'Text',
'OwnerID' => 'Int'
