To upload a video in the browser doesn’t require any special software. Simply press the "+ Add videos" button in the upper right corner of the videos sidebar. After the video file is uploaded the encoding will automatically start while you can enter metadata about the video. Once the video is encoded it will be available for playback if you have set it to published.
You can select multiple files for upload, they will be enqueued and uploaded one after the other.
Please do not close your browser before all videos are uploaded.
2. Uploading a video using the API
Normally you would use the web interface to upload videos. However, sometimes you might want to integrate Flowplayer with your existing systems or publishing workflow and in those cases it might be good to integrate video uploads using the API.
In case you want to publish video files hosted outside Flowplayer you should create a remote video asset to be able to publish these files in the video player.
If you have a large media library we suggest to leverage our upload API to upload the files.
If you are migrating a large video library from Brightcove, JW, Kaltura or Ooyala you can get in contact with Flowplayer support to leverage our cloud migration service which ensure video assets and metadata are correctly transferred.
