- Libraries are part of Strawberry’s “Watchfolders” add-on. The add-on must be activated on your system in order to use this feature.
Before configuring an external library, you’ll need to make sure that the external folder structure is reachable by the Strawberry server. If you are unsure how to do this please contact next-level support.
1. Go to “Projects / Manage Libraries” and checkbox the Library that you created in the previous step. The library will be shown as “Not Configured”.
2. Click on the “Edit” button below the library project list. The following options appear:
The name of the external library. This name cannot be changed after the library has been created.
The type of watch folder that the library should use. Available options are “Ingest” or “External”. Select “External”.
The path to the external watch folder as seen by the Strawberry server.
The Strawberry managed storage to which the external Watchfolder should be bind mounted. This is only relevant for multi-storage environments.
The encoding priority for proxy files in this Library. The ratio between normal and high priority is 1:4, meaning that assets in libraries with a high encoding priority are 4 times more likely to be processed by the encoder than assets with a normal priority and 16 times more likely to be processed by the encoder than assets with low priority.
