Uploading a video (NOT from iLearn, a new one). NEVER MIND: I FIGURED IT OUT!Answered
I have been routinely uploading new videos to Canvas this semester and all of a sudden, I have one that won't upload. It is smaller than others I have uploaded so I don't think that is the reason. I tried using the Mediasite instructions but they were for someone (Daniel) trying to upload from iLearn. Any ideas?
Canvas courses have a max file storage size of 2GB overall. It is very much not intended for you to upload video files directly to Canvas but rather use Mediasite to upload videos instead. What's likely happening is you've hit your file storage limit for the course.
We have a guide for this here: https://athelp.sfsu.edu/hc/en-us/articles/6677972668947Comment actions
This is helpful, Cristian! I read through the AT article about adding new videos to Mediasite and have started to do so. However, it looks like you can only do this one video by one. Is there a way to bulk add many videos?
For context - I downloaded a bunch of recorded lectures from Zoom when they were going to be expired/deleted, and now I'd like to make them available to my current students to reference in the future if needed. In the past, I would just share the link to the recorded lectures on Zoom, but now that they are not available there, I need to find a new place to store them and link to them. (They are currently sitting in a Box folder.)
Thanks! I actually looked into streaming from Box and couldn't find info on it (I was looking into folder permissions), so I had ruled that out - but thanks for letting me know that it's possible, though unreliable. I guess I'll go the Mediasite route (though it is slowwww - in addition to having to do it one-by-one, it is taking ~30 minutes to upload each video - though admittedly, they are large (~300 MB)).
