How to create a video post

Videos are hosted within a post content type with videos inserted in the post.

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. However, timeouts, loading issues, and lag may occur with large videos over 1GB depending on a user's internet, network, or browser. 

Videos are a great way to share information, entertain, or to provide a simple how-to guide.

Remember to use videos from a reputable source that falls within the GeoNet Community Guiding Principles.

Please note the following about using videos:

  • Don't use video that does not come from a reputable source.
  • Do not use video to create a specific how-to instruction for using the community. If creating a GeoNet specific how-to, please contact the GeoNet team at geonet@esri.comto discuss your how-to needs and how we can help.
