Creating an FTP folder to Arcus on your Desktop

Last Updated: Aug 09, 2018 03:56PM EDT
It is easy to upload content to DEVOS using the web upload.  But did you know you can make a permanent folder on your Windows computer where you can just drag and drop new video files?

Follow these steps

1) Open File Explorer then right-click on your computer name.  This is the icon of a computer.

2) Select "Add Network Location", then Next.

3) Select "Choose a custom network location" and Next.

4) Type in "ftp://[your Arcus FTP username]:[Your Arcus password]@api.helnix.com

Your FTP username can be obtained from a button on the Video On-Demand page in Arcus.  A correct entry might look like this:

ftp://1bc123ab:mypass123@api.helnix.com

Next

5) Enter a convenient name such as "My DEVOS Account", then Next

Congratulations!  You now have a shortcut that appears in your file explorer where you can upload videos of any size to your DEVOS account.

Important Rules 
  • Your video title will be the video file name, so if you upload a video "Arcus is Great.mp4" your title will be "Arcus is Great".
  • The video will disappear from your folder when Arcus has ingested it.
  • If you have a channel in Arcus selected as the channel where all new files automatically get published to, it will go on that channel. Otherwise, you will need to assign it to a channel manually in the Manage Channels section of Arcus.
