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 bound to.

  3. Set media workflows.

    Workflows support transcoding, encapsulation, watermarking, encryption, and editing, allowing you to fast and flexibly construct a cloud-based audio/video handling process on demand.

    Each workflow is bound to a path of the Input Media Bucket. When an audio or video file is uploaded to the path or 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 execute 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 resource.
