Last Updated: Dec 06, 2018


ApsaraVideo for VOD is based on Alibaba Cloud OSS. It provides resource storage services without requiring you to activate OSS. It allows you to set up your VOD service quickly with multiple functions, such as video uploading, storage, transcoding, editing, production, distribution, and playback.


  1. After you activate the VOD service, a dedicated storage bucket is assigned by default. You can directly upload media resources to the bucket and manage the resources in the bucket without the need to configure the bucket. By default, the storage service is activated in the China (Shanghai) region.Storage list
