    Hi @Sovik,

    You can find the differences in our documentation:

    • You can find a video tutorial here.
    • Unsigned uploads here.

    Basically, unsigned presets are used for unsigned uploads, those are non-authenticated uploads and are limited in the parameters you can use in the upload as documented here.

    Signed presets are used for signed uploads and require a backend to generate signatures and authenticate the requests.
