Create & Upload Videos to the Video Asset on Mobile App
The Video Feature on our iOS and Android RR Artist app allows artists to record videos up to 5 minutes in length and 5 GB in file size right from their phones and upload them directly to the Asset Manager in their Artist Account. Uploaded video files are stored in the Account storage and are visible in the app as well as on the Creator Site under Videos in the Asset Manager.
How To Record & Upload a Video to your Asset Manager Using a Mobile Phone
Once you have an account set up on the Creator Site and are logged in to the RR Artists app (Artist account is selected), you'll see a menu icon at the bottom right-hand corner:
Tap the menu button and a sidebar menu will open. Then tap the tab labeled Videos.
If you already have video files uploaded from your computer or phone, the Videos screen will display a list of videos.
Each video card consists of:
- Video thumbnail
- Video title
- Video description
To record a new video, tap the “Add” button at the top right of the Videos list screen, and a recording screen will appear.
Then, simply tap the round red button at the bottom to begin recording!
As you’re recording, you’ll notice a progress bar circling the Play button. The button allows you to pause and resume your video during recording.
Once the user stops the recording or the video has been recorded up to the 5 minute limit, the Video Preview screen will open.
On this screen, the video is on pause by default. The Play button starts the video playback.
The Save Copy to Gallery button automatically saves the content to the phone folder (Camera Roll) by default. To not save the content to the phone folder, the artist should switch the radio button to OFF. The user's choice will be kept until the application is removed.
Once you’re finished here, tap Next at the bottom right-hand side of the screen.
Tap the appropriate icon beside the Play button to open the Camera Roll screen.
Select the video you want to upload from your camera roll, then tap the confirmation button. In the Camera Roll, videos that exceed the 5 minute length and/or 5GB size limit are disabled.
Video Preparation Screen
This screen will ask you to create the following for the video:
- Title for the video (required)
- Description of the video (optional)
On this screen, the artist can also preview the video by tapping the video thumbnail. The video opens on the full screen via the System Player.
Once you’re done here, tap the Upload option at the top. The video will begin uploading!
Wait for the video to finish uploading. The uploading progress will be shown on the upload bar at the bottom of the screen. Please note, it will take some time to upload and process, depending on your connection speed and file size.
Once it’s finished, the video will appear on the main Videos screen.
Video Recording Limitations
Artists can record each video for up to 5 minutes, and up to 5 GB in size.
Video Storage Limit
Artists have limited storage for video uploads. By default, the storage limit for an Artist account is 10 Gb. Your storage usage can be checked in the Master Account -> Menu -> Storage. It includes videos, and other elements in the Asset Manager - such as Audio, Photos and Fonts.
After you create a new video with the RR Artists app, you can edit the video description or remove the video. Simply go to the Videos list, select the video you wish to modify, and tap the edit or trash icon accordingly.
All videos can be sorted by date or name. By default, the videos are sorted by name (A-Z) which can be modified by one tap.
