Upload existing media

If you have an existing video it can be brought into Mediasite and served to students.

  1. In My Mediasite Dashboard, click on the orange button +Add Media in the blue bar on the right
  2. Select the card on the right “I want to upload a file from my computer”
  3. Browse your computer and select your video file
  4. In the pop-out window ‘New Presentation Details’ - provide a name and description and then click the button Create Presentation
  5. The video will upload and process (allow some time)
  6. Once the video has been fully processed and is ready to edit or/and make ‘Viewable’ you will be notified via email

The system is capable of ingesting over a hundred different video formats, however, it is important to consider the following:

  • File size and internet upload speeds. Not all home internet connections are suitable for uploading even moderately sized videos
  • For large files upload them from campus and via a wired connection
  • Mediasite can take up to double the run-time of a video to transcode for distribution. For example; a ten minute video will take roughly twenty minutes until it is ready for playback
  • Uploading media adds to your personal 'My Mediasite Storage'.
