Uploading a media asset is the first step in publishing your video. After you login, you'll be taken to your media library. There is where you can manage all the media in your account.
So without further ado, let's upload your first media asset!


How to upload media?

  1. Click on New Media.
  2. Browse and select the file (or files) to upload.
  3. Wait while your media asset is processed.

One your file has been uploaded, we will process it so that it is suitable for streaming. This can take a few minutes, depending on the length of your file.
