Using Third-Party Streaming Servers - Cinema8 Synch

If you have an account in another video platform where it already streams your videos, you might have a question like; Do I need to upload all my videos to Cinema8 too? Actually, you don't have to. When you get the streaming service from another platform, you can optionally integrate your account here with the Cinema8 Synch module. Once you have the integration, all of your videos are automatically listed in the Cinema8 library and you can start converting them to interactive videos.

Let's take a look at how you can sync your account in a few minutes.
