Uploading Video

OSP provides the ability for Users to upload video directly to the system without streaming. This may be useful in cases where post-production needs to be added to a previously recorded video.


To upload video to OSP, a few settings must be configured by the Administrator

Under Admin -> Settings, the “Enable Uploads” setting must be enabled. Users which will be uploading video must be granted the Uploader Role under Admin -> Users.

Additionally, the “Maximum Video Upload File Size (MiB)” and “Maximum Video Thumbnail File Size (MiB)” settings can be configured to specify the file size limit (in MiB) of videos and thumbnails to be uploaded. They must each have a value no less than 1 MiB.

Already uploaded videos and thumbnails whose sizes happen to exceed the current size limits will not be automatically deleted.


  • Users must have a channel setup prior to uploading

  • Videos must be in H.264 MP4 fomat

  • Videos must be no bigger than the site’s “Maximum Video Upload File Size (MiB)” limit.
