Teleport Media SaaS is designed for employees of online video services who are interested in finding and testing ways to deliver media content faster, cheaper & secure. It all aims to improve key service metrics, scale video delivery and viewer reach, and optimize video delivery costs.
Teleport Media software does not require special equipment for installation and use, however technical knowledge of setting up a new account and installing the video player wrapper in the web or mobile application is required. Management of the software can be carried out through Teleport Media Dashboard or using the advanced API. The software can be accessed online.
In this Teleport Media User Guide we explain step by step how to register a new Dashboard User — create an account, join the team, connect the domain, and then set the statistic configuration to see how and what traffic is going into the peer-to-peer network.

CONNECTING A DOMAIN IN TELEPORT MEDIA DASHBOARD ACCOUNT
After you have created an account in the Teleport Media dashboard, you can link a domain to start trying the peer-to-peer video delivery. There may be several domains and subdomains attached in one personal account. This depends on how your stream is organized and where the traffic comes from. Let's explore how to link and activate your domain.
Domain activation is carried out in two steps in the Integration — Add domains section of the Teleport Media dashboard:
Step 1. Confirm the rights to the specified domain in one of the suggested ways shown on Pic. 6. After entering the appropriate code click on Verify my domain. You will receive a confirmation email, it will look like this:
Step 2. Place the Teleport Media script on your web or mobile app, according to the Documentation, selecting the appropriate wrapper for the player. There is also a link to the Documentation in the lower left corner of the My Account page. If the player you need is not listed among the suggested wrappers, please contact Teleport Media Support — everything can be solved! firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can now run the Teleport Media software with any video player on this domain and all its subdomains. Please read the Documentation to learn how to integrate Teleport Media with a video player you use.
A special authorization key was automatically created for the specified domain. You can use it free of charge for test purposes at the basic free level for 1'000 simultaneous viewers.
Depending on your subscription plan, you can create different access keys with specific configuration parameters to manage the Teleport Media operation to maximize the value for your business. To upgrade your plan, please contact Andrei Klimenko email@example.com
After domain rights are confirmed and the Teleport Media script is successfully installed on your video player, in the My domains section you will see active, inactive, remote domains - Pic. 9, and user keys to them — Pic. 10. At the same stage you can apply different settings to the keys and domains, like activate, deactivate, delete. Keys are the main element for collecting statistics, so let's proceed with it.
On the statistics screen, there is a tab created by default called "Active traffic". This tab is important because it has a list, which is formed on the basis of the state of the keys.
The advantage of this tab is that the statistics will be generated only for active keys, starting from day (selected by default), week and month. The statistics shows Bandwidth - traffic, Viewers — the number of viewers, and on the tab Layout — connected Efficiency indicators (in % of total traffic — how much was uploaded to the P2P network), Buffering — by what level it was reduced, as well as the Upload Speed.
The list inside the "Active traffic" tab cannot be changed.
When the status of the key is changed, the tab "Active traffic" will be changed according to the status of new changes.
Also, for more flexible configuration of the list, to get statistics on specific keys, you can add a tab by clicking on the +.
There can be no more than 5 tabs in total (together with the "Active traffic").
The formation (creation / addition) of a new tab, passes without selecting the keys. It is only possible to form a list of keys to the categories to which they belong on the basis of their status.
Further, by clicking on the checkbox — "on" — a particular key becomes active, and you get its statistics on the graph.
The same by removing it on the checkbox — "off" — a particular key becomes inactive, so the statistics on this key are not displayed on the graph.
The states of the lists in the tabs are saved in accordance with the user's preference. You can also change the name and delete the tabs.
Thanks for tests and feedback, enjoy NEW Teleport Media Dashboard!
