Our Blue Billywig Online Video Platform (OVP) relies on AWS S3 for its file storage: an extremely scalable and robust online storage environment. Every OVP account has a dedicated AWS S3 bucket.

Creating a new media clip in the OVP typically means 3 steps need to be taken:

  1. An upload session needs to be registered
  2. A media clip needs to be registered
  3. A file upload to the AWS S3 bucket needs to be initiated and related to the upload identifier that is received in step one. Read more on how to generate your AWS S3 credentials
