I have about 10 storage groups.

I want when I import like 100 videos, each group get like 10 videos. Is this possible?

after some searching in KVS I notice there is a field for import "storage group". Whats the proper format to use it? (while this might do the job is there any easier method to spread imported videos among storage groups)

In Settings -> Content settings you can choose the default storage group for all new videos. You can choose random option there, and do not specify anything in import data. So KVS will randomly pick a storage group for all imported videos.

There are a few server groups that I dont want to add new videos to them (they are almost full), Is there any way to exclude them?

I think there is a misunderstanding.

if I import 100 videos and I choose random, KVS will choose one storage group randomly and import all that 100 videos in that. However I want it spread the 100 videos among all my storage groups. It means if I have 5 storage group each one get 20 videos.

Yes, deactivating server groups is not affecting visitors. KVS in general will never allow to have a situation when something is not working (e.g. when server groups have videos these videos will stop working).

So videos on deactivated server groups are not watchable, right?

This is what should actually happen.

No, videos on deactivated groups can be played normally. Group status only affects if new videos will be put on this group or not.
