Last updated: 2022-09-16 15:48:08


    This document describes how to upload audio/video files from local storage or a URL in the VOD console.


    • Formats including WMV, RM, MOV, MPEG, MP4, 3GP, FLV, AVI, and RMVB are supported.
    • During upload, you can visit other pages of the VOD console, but do not close the browser or access the console of another product. Doing so will interrupt the upload.
