Ingesting Remote Assets
Was this article helpful?
A remote asset is a piece of content that is hosted outside of Backlot. Instead of uploading, transcoding, and storing the content in Backlot, you simply upload its URL and other descriptive information so that Backlot can find the content when needed. For an introduction, see Remote Assets. You can ingest remote assets to Backlot using the following ways:
- Backlot UI (see Remote Assets)
- Backlot API (see Remote Assets)
- Media RSS (MRSS) (see Ingesting Remote Assets via MRSS)
