About Uploading with Livepeer Studio

When an asset is uploaded, it gets transcoded in the Livepeer Network. This process generates information for playing the video, and Livepeer Studio stores the video for you. Information on the asset such as the playbackUrl, can be retrieved for viewing via either a video player, or via download with the provided downloadUrl.
