    Can we upload an SRT file?

  • Aleksandar Kostadinov

    Hi @Sayuri,

    Yes, absolutely - the SRT file can be uploaded as a "raw" asset into Cloudinary.

    If you're uploading via the Media Library UI then we will automatically detect the filetype and assign the resource_type as "raw" for the SRT file upon upload.

    If you're uploading via the API, then you would need to either set resource_type:"raw" explicitly in your upload call or pass "auto" as the resource_type and let Cloudinary assign the right resource_type upon upload.

    Please see the following section of the documentation with details on uploading non-image/video assets as raw.
