Uploading Audio

Before you can manage audio files, you must upload them.

Ooyala now provides a default Audio-Only Player in addition to the existing default Video Player:

See the Audio-Only Player documentation section for more details on uploading content for audio-only or audio-primary playback and using the default Audio Player. For more informaiton about ingestion tailored for audio-only playback, see Audio-Only Player: Asset Processing.

To upload an audio file:

  1. Log in to the Backlot UI. The Backlot UI opens.
  2. Click ADD NEWCONTENT and select AUDIO.
  3. In the Add Asset pop up window, select one or more files to upload and click Open.
  4. In the Processing Profile drop down menu, select a processing profile. (This step is optional, so you can leave the selection on Automatic processing if you wish).
  5. Once you click UPLOAD, the audio file(s) appear on the MANAGE page as Backlot begins processing. After Backlot completes, it changes the STATUS to LIVE.
  6. Change the default name in the TITLE field and provide a description of the video in the DESCRIPTION field.
