Creating Your First Video

Creating Your First Video

Creating a video in flexvid.io is as easy as 1-2-3. 

Step 1: Add New Video

To create your first video, begin by clicking 'NEW VIDEO' inside of your flexvid.io dashboard.

 

Step 2: Select Video Storage Option

Next, choose one of the following upload options by clicking on the appropriate box:

 

You will need to determine which method best suits your needs. By uploading a video file to your account, you can take advantage of our secure HLS video encryption and our blazing-fast Turbo CDN Bandwidth. Note that uploaded videos will go against your account's allotted storage space and Turbo CDN Bandwidth (all accounts have unlimited traditional bandwidth). 

If you choose third-party hosting via URL linking, you won't be able to take advantage of HLS encryption or Turbo, CDN Bandwidth; however, most other flexvid.io features will still work. 

 

Option #1: Upload File

To upload a file directly to flexvid.io, select 'UPLOAD FILE' and choose your video file. To ensure videos are using secure HLS encryption, be sure to leave the 'Secure My Video (HLS)' box selected. When finished, click 'UPLOAD'.

 

Optional: For premium quality videos and smaller file sizes, click the gear icon on the right-hand side and select 'Use 2-pass conversion' before clicking 'UPLOAD'. Note that this will take longer to process.

 

Option #2: File URL

Alternatively, you can link to any third-party video (YouTube, Facebook, Dropbox, etc.) by simply typing in the URL and clicking 'VALIDATE'. 

 

Step 3: Save Video

After uploading or linking to your video, type in your video name and click 'SAVE & CONTINUE' to begin editing.
