Video Upload and Ingestion

Our ingestion tools support your needs, from basic end-user upload capabilities, to powerful tools for content administrators.

For Content Administrators

Quickly upload of any file type – video, audio, images or documents. Ingest 600 videos at once, or just a couple. Create automated workflows, or simply add content from your browser or desktop. Let users contribute videos, even from a smartphone.

Browser-based Ingestion 

Upload files from your computer, webcam, or import from your web host - all from within the Kaltura Management Console.

Bulk Upload and FTP Upload

Import multiple files per session via a simple comma separated file (CSV) or a complex XML structure. Ingest files from your own FTP server, or upload to Kaltura’s FTP location. For customers hosting their content on a CDN or storage server, metadata fields can be imported separately from the actual content.

Automated Content Ingestion via a Drop Folder

Just add your media and metadata to a drop folder (on-premise or on our servers) and the Kaltura system will activate an ingestion workflow tailored to your needs. Supports upload of metadata only, as well as pushing media directly to your CDN, or on-premise storage.

High Speed Upload Powered by AsperaTM

Upload large files dozens of times faster than traditional FTP/HTTP based connections using a web based interface, or your own Aspera ™ Client.  Multi-Gb files can transfer in minutes instead of hours.

Kaltura Upload API

Leverage Kaltura’s robust API to implement custom content ingestion workflows.

For End-users

Upload from Kaltura MediaSpace 

Enable users to upload media directly from within the organizational video portal. They’ll be able to upload files from their desktop, mobile devices, or by adding their webcam and screen recordings. 









Mobile Upload

Both administrators and users can upload media from their mobile device using Kaltura’s mobile app.  New content can be added directly to categories in your library. 

Consolidate Uploads Across Applications
