Quick start

  • While in your project folder, run sanity install mux-input. Read more about using plugins in Sanity here.

  • Make a schema type that uses the plugin's type, for example:

      title: "Video blog post",
      name: "videoBlogPost",
      type: "document",
      fields: [
        { title: "Title", name: "title", type: "string" },
          title: "Video file",
          name: "video",
          type: ""

    Read more about schemas in Sanity here.

  • Get an API Access Token and enter it into the setup screen First time you use the plugin you will be asked to enter your MUX credentials.

    The Mux Video API uses an Access Token and Secret Key for authentication.

    If you haven't already, generate a new Access Token in the Access Token settings of your Mux account dashboard, and make sure it got permission to both read and write video and read data.

    The token is stored in the dataset as a document of the type mux.apiKey with the id secrets.mux. Having the ID be non-root ensures that only editors are able to see it.

    The MUX plugin will find it’s access tokens by fetching this document.

Playing videos in the frontend

We have made an own player which supports poster images for the videos as set with this plugin, see sanity-mux-player

You could use any player which supports HLS, just point the video source to:${assetDocument.playbackId}.m3u8

Install command

sanity install mux-input
