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.
Make sure the clock on your device is set to the correct time; when it's off the upload might fail.
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.
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.
