How to add a Video?

Adding a Video file

  5. Click the three dots (⋅⋅⋅) at the top right above the video, and drag to select which frame you would like to use as thumbnail. Then click Done.
  6. Type a Title of the video if you like a title to display above the video (optional).
  7. Write a Description if you would like it to appear below the video (optional).
  8. Turn on the Required-toggle if you wish to make it required for users to watch the entire video.
  9. Turn on the Autoplay-toggle if you would like the video to autoplay the first time it appears in the user's view.

Video File Compression Tips:

  • Reduce video length
    Try to keep your videos as brief as possible and cut out any unnecessary parts during the editing process.
  • Lower video resolution
    The lower the resolution, the smaller your file.
  • Change video codec
    There are many codecs to choose from. The most popular lossless codec is H.264, which preserves HD quality. Other common codecs are AVI, WMA, XviD, Real Audio, and Apple Video.
  • Lower audio bit rate
    If high fidelity vocals, or music isn’t a priority, you can reduce the file size quite a bit by lowering the audio bit rate.
  • Use 3rd party hosting
    Video sharing sites like YouTube and Vimeo make it easy to distribute your videos. You can embed such videos using the External content block.
