The S3 bucket provided by Magine is exclusive to a single partner. 

To access the bucket you will need credentials that consist of an AWS Access Key and Secret Access Key. Magine creates all buckets in eu-west-1 (Ireland) region.


If you need credentials, please contact support@magine.com. We will send you all needed information in an encrypted zip-file (the password to open the file will be sent separately for security reasons).


Magine can create credentials with two different levels of access: 

  • read-write (which can download, upload and delete content) 
  • read-only (which can only download content)

The default credentials we provide give read-write access.


The bucket can be accessed with tools like Cyberduck, for which we’ve made a simple how-to below, as well as standard tools and libraries like AWS CLI or boto3 library.


We support the following folders inside the bucket:

  • /vod/ - Used to upload VOD content for transcoding.
  • /epg/ - Used to upload EPG data for live-tv.
  • /trailers/ - For serving trailers.


How to access the bucket to upload or download VOD assets

The simplest way to access the bucket directly is to download and install Cyberduck from https://cyberduck.io/download/
