class Video extends DataObject {

private static $belongs_many_many = array(
'Channels' => 'Channel',


class Channel extends DataObject {

private static $db = array(
'ChannelTitle' => 'Varchar(255)',
'ChannelDescription' => 'Text'
private static $many_many = array(
'Videos' => 'Video'
private static $summary_fields = array(
private static $many_many_extraFields = array(
'Videos' => array(
'PublishedDate' => 'SS_Datetime',
'UnpublishedDate' => 'SS_Datetime'
