video_entityis created every time a video is uploaded to Uiza via a URL which redirects Uiza to your video storage to retrieve the video file. This URL could be either a direct HTTP/HTTPS link or a URL that leads to your FTP or S3 storage.
Once the video has been successfully retrieved, Uiza transcodes the file into several renditions that have different resolutions and are compatible to different streaming protocol such as HLS, fMP4... These renditions are made available to your viewers by you publishing them to Uiza's Content Delivery Network (CDN) via Uiza APIs.
The APIs allow you to create, delete, publish, update the information of the video_entities and retrieve your entities individually or collectively.
