Let us take you through video collections, video processing templates, file uploads, and streaming.

1. Create Video Collection

A video collection is an efficient system to manage your videos, just like an album where you store multiple media files. You can either upload videos in a collection or point us to the storage if you use a different storage system for your original videos.

You can create a collection by clicking on the + Add New Collection button on the collections page.

Just hit the Done button and share the instantly transcoded video immediately.
