Ingest Options

New files are submitted to the Media Factory in a variety of ways.

Browser Upload

The most common method of upload is by a straight HTTP upload to the Upload Endpoint from the browser. You will need to provide a user session token and vhost ID. We suggest using a dynamic UI for uploading that displays a progress bar. We recommend SWFUpload.

Server-to-server Upload

Using the Upload Endpoint, an upload can be posted over HTTP from your server to ours. You will need to provide a user ID, API key and vhost ID.


Email addresses can be associated with channels and groups in Media Factory. The subject line is used for the title, the message body is used for the file description, and the attached file is uploaded into the system.
