Thanks for choosing Spotlightr, we are sure you will love it.  Let's start publishing videos!

In the article below we will show you how to create your first video.  

Here is a brief video walk-thru.

Assuming that you are already logged-in, on the right side of your screen you will see this menu, just click on NEW VIDEO button.

You will have 2 options to create your video. Those options are either to upload to Spotlightr or to link to us via a URL:

Uploading a video

For the first one, just click UPLOAD TO SPOTLIGHTER and choose a file from your device.

Important to remember here is that with this option you are using your account's storage space as well as Spotlightr's turbo-bandwidth which will stream your videos.

Uploading directly to Spotlightr also means we'll convert your video to .mp4 (if not already an .mp4) and also optimize it for the web.

During the optimization and conversion process you will still be able to edit your video.

One important feature here is our "HLS segmentation encryption" which secures your video against browser extensions and plugins which can download your content.


If the check-box "Secure My Video" is selected, your video will be converted to .m3u8 format container and it will be secured.


If you wish to keep your video in .mp4 this option should be unchecked.

Linking a video

Second option lets you use a direct link of your choice. We call this our Hybrid Hosting feature.

We support:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • GoogleDrive
  • Facebook
  • DropBox
  • Amazon S3
  • And more...

Paste your link in a given field and hit VALIDATE button, if you have a working link it should be validated within seconds and you can start uploading your video.
