Direct Uploads

Normally, with Media Cloud activated and working, uploads go to WordPress first and then Media Cloud will upload to cloud storage. When you enable Direct Uploads, those uploads will now skip WordPress completely, and are sent straight to your cloud storage provider.

For Videos, direct uploads will not generate additional metadata that you may or may not need. However, if you install FFProbe on your server, Media Cloud will generate this additional metadata after the upload to cloud storage is complete.
