Video Assets and Encoding

After uploading a video to a Video Asset object an asynchronous transcoding process takes place which may take several minutes. The number, type, and specifications of the transcoding is determined by the video_encoding_profile field. By default there are two options for encoding profiles: default, and HD.

Once the video is transcoded a number of objects are updated:

  • New video_asset objects are created for each of the newly created transcoded videos
  • Both the status and metadata for the original video_asset are automatically updated
  • If the video_asset is associated with a Creatives that creative will be turned active
