Hi forum :)
Does Brightcove create renditions with remote assets? Media API? FTP Batch Processing?
My client wants to use Level3 for CDN, but I am hoping we can use Brightcove's rendition engine and not need to integrate with another 3rd party encoding service.
Your insights would be very helpful! Thank you!

I think I am answering your question...
Whether or not you upload assets to Brightcove via FTP, API, or through the studio, we do the transcoding. There is no 3rd party needed to transcode.
Remote assets is slightly different because in this scenario Brightcove is allowing users to point our player to an external asset and play it. In this case, the asset doesn't "live" within Brightcove, so we don't transcode.

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate it!
So there is no way, not with BYO or related, for Brightcove to transcode and save the assets to a CDN, say Level3 in my client's case. Is this right?

We do work with Level3: http://support.brightcove.com/en/docs/content-deli

Ah very insightful! Okay, if you will pardon my verbosity, I would love if you could give me the thumbs up, thumbs down on this process then :)
I very much appreciate your help - you're awesome :)
Step 1) Client uploads video master file to their website
Step 2) Website executes 'create_video' with Media API and thus uploads video master video file to Brightcove.
Step 3) Brightcove transcode video file into all Brightcove renditions
Step 4) Brightcove saves the renditions to Level3 CDN
Is this right?
Thank you again, sir.

Here is a snippet from our doc that also answers your question:
You can also choose to use your own choice of CDN (BYO CDN or "bring your own bandwidth"). In this case, depending on the agreement with your CDN provider, your videos will be delivered seamlessly through Video Cloud players using either Progressive Download (PD) or streaming mechanisms. If you choose BYO CDN, you can use the Video Cloud uploading tools to ingest content into your Video Cloud account, which then gets pushed to your CDN provider for delivery to end users through your Video Cloud players.
For RTMPE support with BYO CDN, 100% of your video assets must be delivered through RTMPE.
However, I suggest you get in contact with someone in our Sales department to discuss.

Our client is working on getting together with their Account Rep as we speak :)
You have been a huge help, and I very much appreciate your quick replies. Thank you.
Last question - The Account Rep/Sales Rep can work to remove the 2GB upload limit via the Media API and/or FTP Batch Processing, is this right?
Thank you again, sir!

There is no 2GB cap for FTP. The 2GB cap is in reference to the Media API and uploads through the Studio, although that can be changed if you choose to use Aspera accelerated upload for the Studio.
