    With the batch pull feature, you can upload a TXT or CSV list, and VOD will directly parse the files in the list into the video pull list.
    You need to fill in the TXT or CSV file in the specified format, which can be viewed by downloading the Sample File. The columns are as detailed below:

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    Video Resource URL Video Name Video Cover URL
    • TXT file: columns should be separated by commas.
    • CSV file: columns should be separated by commas (you can directly fill in the table columns in the CSV file).

    Note:

    • The columns are video resource URL, video name, and video cover URL, respectively. Please fill in the columns in sequence.
    • After the list is parsed, please check whether there are any errors and upload after confirmation.
