Video server

Uploading Content

Video files are located in the /streaming directory on the server webpub.ucar.edu. To get an account or add a new directory that you have write permission to, submit a work request to the CISL Help Desk.

The /streaming directory on webpub.ucar.edu is the root content directory for the video.ucar.edu web server which is simply an Apache server optimized for download of large video files. The server adds a directory called ramgen to the URL. Here's how a file path translates to a URL.

File path: /streaming/org/file.mp4

URL: http://video.ucar.edu/org/file.mp4

It's best to encode your videos for progressive download so that they start playing for the user as they are still downloading.
