Video file upload and workflow execution

Last Updated: Apr 19, 2018

Preceding step: Workflows


Step 1. Upload a file

You can use the MTS console or OSS related upload tools to upload a video file. In addition, an upload SDK that covers all platforms is provided. For details, see Upload SDK usage instructions, Upload SDK downloading.

  • Upload a video file on the MTS console.

    After creating a workflow, upload a video file to the specified workflow in the Media Files. The video is saved to the Input Path bound to the workflow. After the video is uploaded, the workflow is automatically executed to process the video.

    1. Log on to the Media Processing cosole.

    2. Select the region.

    3. Click Library > Media Files.

    4. Click Upload Media.


    5. On the Upload page, select a Workflow, and click Select File.


      After uploading is completed, you can also click Upload More to upload multiple video files.



      • Web upload supports multi-part upload, resumable upload, and batch upload.

      • In the upload process, you can switch to other pages on the MTS console, but do not close the browser or access the consoles of other cloud products. Otherwise, the upload process is interrupted.

  • Upload a media file using OSS tools.

    We recommend that you use the OSS console client (officially recommended).

    Note: Tool usage instructions are available on the preceding links.

    When using the OSS console client, upload the video file to the Input Path bound to the corresponding workflow to enable automatic workflow execution.


Step 2. Execute a workflow

After a video is uploaded to the Input Path bound to the workflow, the workflow is automatically executed. Each workflow execution is called an execution instance.

You can query the status of the execution instance of the specified workflow on the Executed Tasks page.

  1. Click Library > Library Settings > Executed Tasks.

  2. Select the Workflow ID.

  3. Select the expected Task, and click Details at the right side.


    You can view the details of the instance through Details.
