The S3 bucket provided by Magine is exclusive to a single partner.
To access the bucket you will need credentials that consist of an AWS Access Key and Secret Access Key. Magine creates all buckets in eu-west-1 (Ireland) region.
If you need credentials, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send you all needed information in an encrypted zip-file (the password to open the file will be sent separately for security reasons).
Magine can create credentials with two different levels of access:
- read-write (which can download, upload and delete content)
- read-only (which can only download content)
The default credentials we provide give read-write access.
The bucket can be accessed with tools like Cyberduck, for which we’ve made a simple how-to below, as well as standard tools and libraries like AWS CLI or boto3 library.
We support the following folders inside the bucket:
- /vod/ - Used to upload VOD content for transcoding.
- /epg/ - Used to upload EPG data for live-tv.
- /trailers/ - For serving trailers.
How to access the bucket to upload or download VOD assets
