Library management process

  1. Library settings.

    After MPS is activated, initialize the library and set theInput Media Bucket and Output Media Bucket in Library.

  2. Manage a domain name.

    Set a CDN domain name for the OSS Bucket which the Output Media Bucket is linked to.

  3. Set media workflows.

    Workflows support transcoding, encapsulating, watermarking, encryption, and editing functions. It helps you to construct a rapid and flexible cloud-based audio or video handling process on demand.

    Each workflow is linked to a path of the Input Media Bucket. When an audio or video file is uploaded to the path or to its sub-directory, the workflow is automatically triggered to perform preset processing operations and save the processing result to the specified path of the Output Media Bucket.

  4. Upload video files and execute workflows.

    You can use the MPS console or OSS related upload tools to upload a video file and run workfows.

  5. Manage videos.

    You can manage your video files through Media Files such as publishing and deleting videos, set the title, tag, category, and other information for a media file; or search for a media file using the information. In addition, the Media Files contains the format, duration, bit rate, frame rate, resolution, and other metadata of each media file. It also displays the OSS storage URL and CDN domain URL of each resource, and supports online preview and playback for each source.
