Uploading Media via FTP:

While Centova Cast’s web-based file uploader provides a convenient method for adding files to your media library, web browsers weren't initially designed for file uploads, often making the process cumbersome.

Centova Cast also supports FTP uploads, a more efficient protocol ideal for transferring large files. Advanced users with extensive media may prefer this method.

  • Selecting an FTP Client
    To use FTP, you'll need an "FTP client" installed on your computer.
    Many options exist online,such as FileZillaWinSCP  or CoreFTP .
  • Configuring your FTP Connection:
    After installing an FTP client, configure it to connect to your server using the provided FTP hostname, username, and password from the Quick Links section in Centova Cast.
  • Uploading Media:
    Once connected, your FTP client will display server folders. Upload media directly to the media folder or create sub-folders for organization. Drag and drop files from your computer into the designated folder.
    Uploaded tracks should appear in your media library within approximately a minute.
