For Administrators. For the Instructor/Student guide, see Uploading Media into EchoVideo.
There are times when you may need to manually upload a capture or other video to EchoVideo. The Upload Capture functionality for administrators only allows the uploading of video media.
The file size limit for uploads is 20GB.
IMPORTANT: If you upload the capture, you are the "owner" of the capture, meaning you are the only one who can edit the media or edit the details (name, description, tags) of the content. You can publish it to a section or share it with another user, but that user cannot edit the media or details. See Changing ownership for how to give the content to another user.
To upload existing captures
- From the main menu, select Captures.
- In the upper-right corner of the captures page, click the UPLOAD button.
- In the FileStack window, use the left panel to identify the location of the file, then follow the prompts. It MUST be a supported video file type. If the file is saved locally, click Choose File from the window, and navigate to the capture file to upload.
You may select multiple files for upload, using the shift+select or ctrl/command+select functionality. You may also drag-and drop-multiple files to the FileStack window.
- Click UPLOAD.
The FileStack window changes to show a progress bar for the upload(s). CLOSING THE FILESTACK WINDOW WILL CANCEL THE UPLOADS.
If appropriate, once the capture has been uploaded and processed, you may want to publish it to a section for others to view or change the owner to an instructor so it appears in the My Content tab of their Content Home page. You may also Share the video with other users and for students, teaching assistants, and instructors, it will appear in their Shared with me tab of their Content Home page.
