permalink Where do the finished videos go?

You have a few options for where we will send the videos.

We can send the files to a FTP or SFTP server, to a S3 or Google Cloud Storage bucket, or to Rackspace Cloud Files. See the url option in our API docs for more info.

Don't forget to add credentials or give Zencoder access to your bucket if you use S3 or Google Cloud Storage.

Or you can specify no output destination, and we'll hold on to the file for 24 hours. We'll provide you with a URL that you can use to download the video. We'll remove the video after 24 hours, so don't forget to download it.

Starting with API version 2, if we are unable to upload files to your server we will instead upload them to S3 and provide you with a URL for all files.
