API Upload – upload movies to Streamio outside the built-in interface
In order to use the Streamio API to upload movies to Streamio, there are two different methods, both an automated upload with an even-duty staging step and an often more or less public upload directly to a streamio account.
Upload method that is mainly used when the customer wants to automatically “stage” or receive movies themselves before it is forwarded to the final Streamio account.
We recommend using curl for this.
If the upload aims to allow public users to upload movies to Streamio, for example from a campaign site, the public upload functionality is used.
Here is a schematic description of how to create a public upload.
1. Create a “container” that you assign properties, such as which title the upload module should have, and which tag or tags the movie should receive.
2. List your upload container(s) to obtain id.
Make sure that upload_id be replaced with id for the container you want to use.
