You can use the following OIS options to ingest videos and other content.
Ingesting with FTP / FTPS
You can use FTPS (recommended) or FTP (deprecated) to upload videos, thumbnails, closed captions, and manifest files to Backlot.
Ingesting with Aspera
You can use Aspera file transfer software to upload videos, thumbnails, closed captions and manifest files to Backlot.
Ingesting from a Remotely Hosted MRSS Feed
You can use Media RSS (MRSS) to have Ooyala pull your content from your own system from an MRSS feed that you publish. Backlot pulls the metadata from the MRSS feed and either creates a remote asset or downloads (from where they are hosted) and processes the videos and any associated files (thumbnails, closed caption files, etc.).
