Media deletion involves deleting media resources stored in VOD to reduce the storage costs. VOD provides a rich-featured and easy-to-use media deletion service.
Two deletion modes are supported:
|Ease of use||
Automatic deletion and manual deletion are supported.
Media deletion is generally used to reduce the storage costs or remove non-compliant media.
|Ecommerce platform||After an item is removed, the images and videos of the item are also removed to reduce the storage costs.|
|Video website||Copyright-infringing and non-compliant media resources can be deleted. For old and unpopular videos, you can delete the source HD videos while retaining only the transcoded LD videos to reduce the costs.|
|Game/Sports event recording||Old game and sports media files that are confirmed to be no longer needed can be deleted.|
|Enterprise event||Photos taken and media resources generated during enterprise team building activities generally don't need to be retained permanently. You can set a validity period for enterprise employees to view, watch, and download them. You can specify an expiration time when uploading the media files to automatically delete them upon expiration.|
|Burn-after-reading application||In burn-after-reading applications, resources uploaded by end users will become unavailable after a certain period of time (such as 24 hours). For such applications, the media expiration time can be specified during upload, and VOD will automatically delete relevant media resources upon expiration.|
