Our all-in-one platform offers all the features you need to successfully implement your video strategy. Get started by uploading your content to the Online Video Platform (OVP):
- Login using your username and password;
- Go to “Upload and Transcode” in the left side panel.
All video files uploaded to Blue Billywig will be “transcoded” automatically to multiple different formats. These different versions of your video will optimize playback on every device and maintain a good user experience even when the internet connection is slow. Transcoding happens immediately after a clip has been uploaded.
1.0 | Upload files
Before uploading your content, make sure you have configured the correct settings:
- Select preset
Select a preset from the dropdown menu. Each OVP account contains a “default” preset which contains all the necessary transcoding profiles or pretty much all use cases.
- Advanced options
- Title from filename
With this option each filename will be used in the “Title” metadata field (without the extension.) E.g. uploading a file named “Product Instructions 1.mp4” will be uploaded with the title “Product Instructions 1”.
By default your clips are saved in the “Draft” status, hidden from public access. Auto-publishing your uploaded files will automatically make your content available after the different quality versions have been created (transcoded). Read more about publishing media clips.
Scheduling the availability of videos ensures that videos are published at a set date and time. It’s also possible to set an end date and time. Read more about scheduled publishing.
- Title from filename

While uploading, the upload progress is displayed by a pop up status box allowing you to visit other sections of the platform.
