Sending Output to Rackspace

If you want to deliver your output video files to cloud file folders on your Rackspace account, follow these steps:


  1. On the right side of the same page (on which you see Information about your uploaded video), notice the column labeled Step Two. Click the + symbol to expand the Job Notification and Region section.
  2. From the Region dropdown listing, choose the region in your destination server resides.
  3. If you want to receive notification when the conversion process completes, enter an email address or URL into the Notify URL field. The URL must be the HTTP location of a listening script that can receive the XML notification file that will send.


RackSpace CloudFiles


  1. In the Output #1 section, choose the output format—such as H264/AVC (.mp4)— in the first dropdown listing. In the next dropdown listing, choose the encoding preset. Next, choose CF for the destination type. Then click the link to enter the destination credentials individually.
  2. Enter the RS User name and RS Key for your Rackspace account. Enter the name of your cloud files Folder. In our example we are using Videos.
  3. Enter the Path of the output video file. You must include all subdirectory names and the full name of the file—including the extension (e.g., .mov or .wmv). Be sure to correctly include capitalization where necessary. You will probably want to use an extension that corresponds to the output format. In our example here the path would be /King_Lines.mp4 . Notice that the path in the textbox now corresponds to the entries you made.
  4. You may want to add another delivery location for your output video file. Next to the path field (Where should we send your video?), click the + symbol to add another delivery destination. Then follow the same steps given above. Click Save.
  5. If you need to make changes to the output settings, click the Customize button. Enter a Preset Name, and then click Save Custom Preset. Then click the Save button again.
