Submitting a video to AWS Elemental


In This Guide

You can submit your videos to Amazon Elemental for editing and enhancements. Before you submit a video to AWS Elemental, plan which features you want to include with the published version, such as transcription, advertisements, and graphical overlays. You need to configure your submission to include the features you need.

Note
AWS Elemental provides the features described in this section. If you do not have or do not want to use an AWS account, you can add these features using a video editor on your own laptop, and then publish the video. For details, see Video.
