Videos are a great way to share information, entertain, or provide a simple how-to guide in GeoNet. Uploading videos can be done in several ways. Click on the links below to learn how.

NOTE: Videos must be MP4, YouTube or Vimeo or another allowable URL source to be uploaded or embedded. The user must have permissions to upload a video within the group or space. Video size is unlimited. Timeouts, loading issues and lag may occur with large videos over 1GB depending on a user's internet, network, and/or browser.       

    

 

Uploading a Video in Content

When uploading a video to your post, you will have several options for where you want to pull the video from.

Start by selecting the video icon in the content toolbar. A pop-up window will appear with options to Upload, Record, or Embed and to Browse GeoNet Videos.

Uploading a Video to a Space or Group

Uploading a video is the same process for Spaces and Groups. Begin by opening the Actions menu and clicking on the Video link. The Publish Video page will open, presenting you with two choices to add your video. Uploading a video to a Space or Group is usually based on permissions for that particular place. In some Spaces or Groups in GeoNet, permissions only allow admins to post videos. Check with your Space or Group admin if you do not have the Video Upload option in your Action menu.
