Adobe Extension Overview:
Navigating the Panel:
Once logged in with your hostname, username, and password, perform a global search and toggle between recent uploads or projects in the upper right corner.
Importing MediaSilo Files:
For files that you have the “Download” permission on, you will see an “Import” option in the lower right corner of the file’s thumbnail.
Creating Public QuickLinks:
To create a Public or Public with Password QuickLink, navigate to the QuickLink icon on the right-side and select “New QuickLink” in the lower-right corner.
Once the settings meet your needs, enter e-mails of your recipients separated by commas and choose “Create QuickLink” in the lower right. If you are in Premiere, your file will be sent to Media Encoder, before uploading and creating the link.
You always return to the QuickLink panel to track status, remove, or open QuickLinks that have been created.
In the lower right-side of the panel, you can manage your Panel Settings such as whether or not you want to download your MediaSilo source files or the proxy that we generate as well as the panel page size.
