- To upload content, choose if you need your content to be transcoded or not. Content must be in Mp4/h.264 format if you want to avoid transcoding. The default is set as “compress and stream” which will allow most video formats to be uploaded and transcoded to a format friendly for online streaming. Changing the setting to “upload and stream (no transcode)” should only be used if you are confident that the media is already in the correct format and that the bit rate is appropriate for streaming. Click on “Add file” to choose the file you would like to upload. Then click “Start upload”. Wait until the file has completed uploading before clicking “Save and Continue”. You will know when the video has completed uploading when the status bar disappears and you can see the size of the file. You can now hit “Save and Continue”.
If you have a playlist created, you can choose if you want to publish the asset to it by checking the box, or you can simply press “Save and Publish”.
