Fetching Videos in Advance

Aug 11, 2014

A CloudBridge appliance can download and cache videos from your internal video server before anyone views them. This feature is useful when you want to make sure that all users get the same benefits (for example when playing a self-training video scheduled at a specific time). You can schedule static URLs from which you want to fetch videos.

The fetched videos are stored in the video cache. As soon as a user sends a request for the URL, the video is served from the cache, even for the first access of the video.

To fetch videos in advance, you can perform the following tasks:
  • Specify a URL from which you want to cache videos in advance.
  • Schedule date and time at which to cache the videos.
  • Schedule an interval at which you want to cache the videos.
  • Manage the entries you have added to the list.
