Upload to Mediastore

Mediastore handles short or long videos (max file size 1GB).

If your files are larger than 1GB you should compress the file size before uploading to Mediastore. Only staff can upload videos to the Mediastore but both staff and students can view them.

Detailed questions about Mediastore are provided in the FAQs section.
