A remote asset is a piece of content that you add to Backlot without uploading, processing, or storing the content with Ooyala.
For an introduction, see Remote Assets.
Note: After a remote asset has been created, its propagation to the various CDNs might be delayed 60 seconds or more. If you request a remote asset too soon after its creation, the results will be cached by the CDNs, which might take several minutes to clear. Best practice: after creation, wait 30 or 60 seconds, query with the Backlot API [GET] /v2/assets/asset_id route, and after retrieving the remote asset's embed code (content ID or asset ID), then proceed to embed the asset.
