Ooyala-Video Cloud Ingestion Adapter: Ingesting Remote Assets via MRSS

You can continue using MRSS to create and update remote assets in Video Cloud.


You can add or update remote assets using Media RSS (MRSS).

When using MRSS to add or update a remote asset, you identify the asset as remote by specifying the <ooyala:remoteasset> tag (instead of <media:content>) in the MRSS feed item.

Note: To decide whether to add or update a remote asset, Brightcove uses the <ooyala:embedcode></ooyala:embedcode> field in the XML Manifest to determine whether the remote asset currently exists (update) or not (add).

Adding a Remote Asset

The following example code creates a remote asset (the specified <guid> does not exist).

<rss xmlns:media="" xmlns:dcterms="" xmlns:fh="" xmlns:ooyala="" version="2.0">
  	<ooyala:remoteasset durationInMs='1000' url=""/>
  	<media:thumbnail url=""/>
  	<media:subTitle href=""/>
  	<!-- set flight times -->
  		start=2011-06-28T15:15:00-07:00; end=2022-12-01T16:00:00-07:00;scheme=W3C-DTF

Updating a Remote Asset

For an existing remote asset, you can update the following fields via MRSS:

  • media:title
  • media:description
  • ooyala:subTitle
  • ooyala:metadata
  • dcterms:valid
  • media:thumbnail
  • ooyala:labels

When you submit the MRSS feed item, if it contains updates to any of these fields in the <item> tag, the system updates the remote asset with the applicable changes.
