Upload Service

Let Lightcast.com help you save time and money with our video upload service!

File Upload / File Transfer Service

Send Lightcast.com a harddrive, thumbdrive or access to cloud storage containing your video files incl. title, description, meta information and instructions on channel allocation.

The larger your archive, the cheaper the upload service per file. Tell us about your file transfer needs from other storage to your Lightcast.com account and we will quote it out for you at discounted rates.

FTP Batch Uploads

Alternatively to using our File Upload/File Transfer Service, you can bulk-upload files through your Lightcast Account.

For transfer of 10 or more files, or for files with file sizes greater than 3GB, we recommend the use of FTP transfer. You just need to install a "FTP client" on your computer and connect it with our "Upload Servers" via a dedicated URL and Login. As soon the videos reached our server network, you can see them in your Lightcast.com Media Archive, and you can start adding meta information, player background images, subtitles, etc.

FTP credits can be bought easily via your Lightcast.com Media Cloud.


The Lightcast Web-Uploader is the most comfortable and fastest way to upload single videos to our high-performance CDN. There is no software to download, and meta information such as title, description, keywords, as well as channel-assigment, player background image, subtitles, watermarks etc. can be added in just one step during the upload process. The Web-Uploader is available as JAVA and HTML5 Uploader.
