Working with video you have created

Firefly provides a wide range of options for displaying video content on your page. As there are a wide range of video file types, you can use these different options to effectively upload your videos.

Option 1.  Clickview and Planet eStream

Clickview and Planet eStream are specifically designed for schools to manage videos. They also integrate seamlessly with Firefly so that you can easily upload and manage videos that you have created. 

Option 2.  YouTube and Vimeo

YouTube or Vimeo can be used very effectively to manage videos that you have created. Both of these services ensure that your video is served to the viewer's device in the most effective way.

On any Apple device, upload your video straight to YouTube or Vimeo by selecting the link under the video.

On Android devices, use the share button at the top of the video and select YouTube or Vimeo.

Alternatively, you can upload from your computer by going to your account on YouTube or Vimeo and converting your video to a web friendly format. The URL address can then be copied and pasted straight from YouTube or Vimeo into your Firefly page in the normal way.

With educational accounts, it is possible to create privacy settings that ensure your videos are not available in search or listed on sites but are only viewable to people that you share the page or link with. Please refer to the YouTube or Vimeo sites for more details.

Your video will automatically load in the correct format for viewing on the device that you're using.

Option 3.  Media Player

Insert short media clips and videos by using Media Player. The best format for your video file is an MP4 h264 codec file. 

There are various apps, programs or websites that will easily convert your video file into this format whether you are using a phone, tablet or desktop.
