Mux Video Uploader
UI ExtensionDeveloped by Mux

A Contentful UI extension that makes it simple to add beautiful streaming via Mux to your Contentful project. Just install the extension, add the component to your content model, and you're good to go! 🙌🏾

Setup

Before getting started, make sure to generate a new Access Token.

After installing this extension, a page with your new extension's configuration will open. Update the two required fields with your Mux Access Token ID/Secret, then hit "save".

Setting up your content model

Create a new JSON field in the model you'd like to add Video to. Name the field something useful and descriptive like, for example "Mux Asset".

Click on the "Appearance" tab.

Select "Mux Contentful Uploader"

Congratulations, now you've got the upload side of your very own best-in-class video platform! 🤘🏻

Using your new Video field in clients

The Mux Asset JSON object you'll get in your clients will look like this:

{
  "uploadId": "some-upload-id",
  "assetId": "some-asset-id",
  "playbackId": "a-public-playback-id"
  "ready": true,
  "ratio": "16:9",
}

Both uploadId and assetId are things we need to manage the asset in the Mux API. playbackId is what you'll use in your player. If you want help setting up a player, we have a set of guides to help you get started.
