Alibaba Cloud ApsaraVideo VOD supports the content moderation feature for uploaded media files. This ensures that the uploaded files comply with the content regulations.

Description

ApsaraVideo VOD supports automated review and human review. The result of the human review determines whether the video passes the review. If you use human review, your files are reviewed by professional reviewers. If you use automated review, your files are reviewed based on intelligent review templates. For more information, see Configure review settings.

The automated review feature is supported only in China (Shanghai), China (Beijing), and Singapore (Singapore) regions. You need to submit a ticket to enable the automated review feature in the Singapore (Singapore) region.
