As a relatively new Brightcove employee, one of my first tasks was to get up to speed on Video Cloud. I signed up for an account and started digging into the interface and the documentation. I was lucky that I had resources available to help guide me in the right direction and walk me through a simple workflow, starting with uploading a video all the way through getting it published out to Facebook or a website.
I thought it would be helpful to have some type of hands-on guide that would walk anyone just getting started with Video Cloud through some of the features. That's why I developed the Quick Start to Video Cloud series. It is a series of high level topics and hands-on exercises that anyone can walk through to get them started with Video Cloud. While the quick Start is not meant to replace the documentation, each topic has links to the documentation where you can learn more about specific topics if you need to. The Quick Start also offers some sample videos you can use to get started. Everything you need is all in one place.
I hope you will find the Quick Start useful. Feel free to contact us with any comments or things you would like to see added.
