URL Import

Use the import feature in the Online Video Platform (OVP) to upload your video and audio content by entering a URL. For example: enter a WeTransfer or Dropbox download link to immediately upload content to the OVP.

URL Import Disclaimer

Several disclaimers apply when using the import feature:

  • Copyright infringement is punished by law, therefore: only content owned by the user may be imported into the OVP.
  • Platforms may enforce varying policies regarding the extraction of their source material. Due to changes in policies and reliance on the hosting party we are unable provide full support in case of a failed import or a slow performance. Our support for the URL import feature is therefore on a best-effort basis.
