How do I Import my Nielsen Ratings into my MOCO Server


How do I import my Nielsen Rating onto my MOCO server?


To import/transfer your Nielsen Ratings, one would need to drag and drop or copy the files into your MOCO server. To do this, you would first need to have a way to access the storage drive on the MOCO server. This can be done by RDPing into the server or accessing the drive via the network and file explorer. 

  • Once you have access to the MOCO storage drive navigate to C:\SnapStreamHotFolders\Ratings
  • Import your Nielsen Rating file (.xlsx format) into that location.
    • If the file processes correctly, the file should appear in C:\SnapStreamHotFolders\RatingProcessed
    • If the file is not processed correctly, it will appear in C:\SnapStreamHotFolders\RatingsQuarantined
