The Challenge

Managing media assets in modern web applications can be a daunting task. The currently available solutions provide limited capabilities and typically require a collection of loosely integrated third-party solutions. Developing an in-house solution is an option, but it can be costly and time consuming.

Our Solution

Our Solution

Wix Media Platform (WixMP) is a collection of services for uploading, storing, managing, and serving image, audio, and video files. WixMP is now offered as a service within Google Cloud Platform.

You work with the WixMP REST APIs and SDKs to access all of WixMP's functionality either server-side or client-side. WixMP also includes an online Media Manager and Playground that enable you to quickly upload media files and explore all of the functionality WixMP has to offer.

Image

Image

WixMP provides powerful image-processing services that support resizing, cropping, rotating, sharpening, and face-detection, as well as offering a number of filters and adjustments. Images can be easily served with on-the-fly manipulations using the WixMP SDKs or Image API.

Audio

Audio

WixMP provides storage for professional, high-quality audio files that can then be used in commercial music-selling applications.

Video

Video

Video files uploaded to WixMP are automatically transcoded into additional formats of various qualities, enabling video playback on any browser or Internet-connected device.

Metadata

Metadata

When you upload a file, WixMP automatically gives it a unique ID and stores the file's metadata. You can access a file's metadata, such as an image's or video's width and height, and a video's bitrate, format, and processing status. You can organize and manage your files using the Management API. You can also create and manage collections of your media files using the Collections API. This enables you to create playlists of your media, regardless of their organization in the folder structure. Media files can also be stored once but included in multiple collections.
