Videos Component

The videos component allows you to upload multiple videos that are automatically transcoded for fast streaming delivery.

Videos Component Usage

Just upload a video, and Crystallize automatically transcodes it in different bitrates and sizes for fast delivery on different bandwidths and devices. Streamable video available in no time. The transcoding and publishing to CDN is handled for you.

  • Automatically transcoded to different sizes & bitrates
  • Generates media presentation description (MPD)
  • Generates m3u8 playlist files

When adding this component to a shape, specify a name (required) and description (optional) indicative of the sort of content you wish for it to contain. This description will be visible to those who build content based off of this shape.

Video names are translatable, meaning you can store different values for each language set up within your tenant. When editing an item, use the Language drop-down menu at the top of the screen to switch between translations. Refer to our Configuring Languages page for more information.

To add videos to this component as an editorial user, either drag and drop them onto the component, or click the “Drag and drop videos” prompt to browse your file system. Use the button in the bottom-right corner of the component to switch between List view and Row view. Within List view, you can optionally enter a name and thumbnail image for each video. In Row view, you can click on video thumbnails to access their metadata, and click and drag on them to reorder them. You can also hover over a video thumbnail and click on the trash can icon to delete it from the component.
