Uploading Video Workflow
No matter which platform you use to Upload your videos, there has to be step by step process that needs to happen before video content is available to final users to view. You need to understand how videos are being converted, which formats are supported and how videos are delivered via
web or mobile apps.
Publitio allows you to upload one or more files at the same time, or as it's called Multi-upload. A multi-upload feature is good because you can upload a large number of video files, but also you can apply the same type of settings you want to each one of them.
For example, if you are Uploading a large number of cat videos you could apply tags for all of them "cat, cat lover, cats, cute, kittie" or set privacy for all content to Private/Public or apply Watermark across all of the videos.

The original file will instantly be available via URL in original size and format.
