How do I upload media to my site?

You can upload video, audio, images, documents (PDF, DOC, PTT), or add a URL to your site. Click here to view an entire list of acceptable file formats.



To get started click on the "Upload" tab on your site's home page or sign into your Admin Panel and select the "Add Media" tab at the top of the page.

From your site's Home Page:



From the Admin Panel:



From the "Add Media" page you can either upload a video or paste a YouTube or Vimeo link into the spot provided.



To upload media to your site click on "Choose File" and select a media item from your computer, and click "Choose" at the bottom of the window. Once the progress bar reaches 100% your upload is complete.



Alternatively, you can drag a media file from your desktop and drop it onto the "Add New Media" page and it will begin uploading automatically.



Once your upload is complete: adjust the title, enter a description, add tags, and choose the collection you'd like this media item to belong to. Also, decide if you'd like the media to be featured on the homepage.



Either publish the video immediately, save it as a draft or set it to publish at a future date and time.



Before you publish your media, decide if you want to take advantage of any of the custom options available to you:
  • Thumbnail: You have the option to upload a custom thumbnail by opening the Thumbnail tab and clicking on "Upload Image". Otherwise, we'll choose a still image from your video once it's finished uploading.
  • Attachments: Selecting "Add file" next to "Attachments" lets you add a related file such as an image or PDF.
  • Subtitles: Clicking "Add file" lets you upload subtitle files in the SRT, WebVTT, DFXP, or XML formats. These will be visible in the video player as closed captions. 
  • Advanced: Clicking advanced gives you the option to feature your media on the homepage or add in an author's name if the author is not the person who uploaded the video. Licences will also show up in this field if you have any licences saved to your site.
