Upload videos

The platform offers the following options for uploading videos:

  • Upload from the local file system: Use this option to upload a single video file from the local file system.
  • Upload from a direct URL: Use this option to upload a video file from a publicly accessible URL. The platform will retrieve the file directly from the specified URL, so your application doesn't have to store the video locally and upload it.
  • Upload from external providers: Use this option to upload videos from external platforms by retrieving the video directly from the specified source.
  • Cloud-to-cloud transfers: Use this option to group multiple video uploading operations in a single API request.

Note that the 1.2 version of the API is in beta, and videos can take longer to upload and process when using the Pegasus video understanding engine.

Depending on your use case, proceed to one of the following sections:
