There might be a circumstance where you need to locate and use the actual source URL of the file located on our cloud, typically in .mp4 format. Some customers need the actual location of the video inside of our infrastructure to add the URL to their third-party platform.

The one labeled "Processed Video Source" is the video that was encoded and processed by Spotlightr. If you are encrypting your videos this will be an .m3u8 file type.
