Upload Asset page in Wowza Video

The Wowza Video™ Asset Manager allows users to ingest, store, and tag video content in order to centralize, reuse, amplify, and provide user-friendly access to assets. See Video CMS: What it is and why you need one for more information.

You'll need a Wowza Video subscription to access this capability. Contact sales@wowza.com to upgrade or purchase a new subscription.

This article introduces the different parts of the Upload Asset page to help you find your way around the Wowza Video user interface.

The Upload Asset page allows you to upload assets to the Wowza Video Asset Manager.


This page includes the upload asset functionality and the progress bar.

1. Upload Asset

You can drag and drop a file into the Upload Asset box or select Choose File to select a file. This causes the upload to start.

You can upload:

  • MP4 format only
     
  • 25 GB or less per file
  • H.264 and AAC encoded content — Uploads that consist of any unsupported codecs are rejected.
  • Up to 10 files at one time — You can not process more than 10 files at once. If you have ten files in progress, you must wait for at least one to complete to begin processing another file.

2. Progress

The Progress area shows the progress of your uploaded files. 

In some rare cases it can take up to 24 hours for a file to process and be available.

Files can be in the state:

  • Uploading
  • Waiting for Processing
  • Completed 
  • Failed

The Clear option clears all Failed and Completed files.
