About Ingesting Content
Ooyala allows you to upload your videos into Backlot using the Backlot UI, the Backlot API, and the Ooyala Ingestion Services (OIS). Uploads can include the video file, thumbnail files, closed caption files, and metadata that makes it easier to find the video in Backlot. Once ingested, your video becomes an asset in Backlot that you can manage, syndicate, and publish.
Manifest File Formats
When ingesting videos, you can use manifest files to specify extra metadata (including the video title, description, flight times, labels, and custom metadata), as well as thumbnail and closed caption files. Manifest files are in either XML or CSV format.
