Getting started with Libcast

You have just signed up to and opened the Console. Here are the first steps to begin ! For more information, contact the support team.

  • Upload your first content:  

The first step involves uploading your first content. Go to your briefcase ( "My Documents", on the left menu), hover over the button "Add" and click on "Upload from Hard Drive". The pop-up enables you to drag and drop the content you want to upload or to choose it with the button "Select one or more files" As soon as you have selected your videos, click on "Send file(s)". You can also directly record a message with a Webcam or a Micro.

The briefcase is the area where your uploaded files are sorted out

  • Publish a content

As soon as a content is uploaded and encoded (a thumbnail appears when the file is processing, right after its import), a contextual menu appears on the upper right corner in which you can find the "Publish" function.  By choosing it, you access a settings page. The only compulsory field is "Title", the other ones are optional and are only used for optimizing the indexation of the content if it is required in your project.
