Uploading your Media

Available for these roles: Admin Publisher Contributor

To start off with Viostream, you'll first need to upload a Media Asset

Uploading a Media Asset is the first step in publishing your video. After you login, you’ll be taken to your Media Library. This is where you can manage all the Media in your account.

So without further ado, let’s upload your first Media Asset!

Uploading Media

  1. Click on New Media
  2. Browse and select the file to upload
  3. Wait while your Media Asset is processed

Once your file has been uploaded, we will process it so that it is suitable for streaming. This typically takes 0.5x - 0.8x the length of your video - so for a five minute video it should be done in 3-4 minutes.

Supported Media formats

Viostream supports a wide range of codecs and containers.

Media approval process

For users with the Contributor role, Media will be uploaded in the Pending Review state. You will be able to edit the title and description of your Media Asset, and edit and publish the Automated Captions.

Admin or Publisher users can approve Media for publication by navigating to the Pending Review section of the Media Library.
