How do I upload a Youtube video to My Media?
All Tufts University (faculty/students/staff) accounts can access the Canvas My Media tool and can upload and store video files.
Once uploaded to a user's My Media, a video can be then be shared with course site participants by publishing the video to the site's Media Gallery tool or embedding the video is any Canvas text box (Announcements / Pages / Syllabus / Discussions / Assignments / Quizzes)
Once you have pasted the URL the Preview box will be selectable.
The information will be pulled from the youtube video. Once you have adjusted the information click Save.
This displays your My Media space with all of the videos you have uploaded.
NOTE: Depending on the size of the video, it may take awhile for the video to be "processed". When finished processing, you will receive an email at your Tufts email address indicating that the video is ready to be published to a Media Gallery site or embedded in a Canvas text box.
Note: Since mechanical captioning is automatic you will first see a tag that says, autoprocessing. This will then change to autocomplete when CC is available. This will not require any action on your part.
After the autocomplete tag appears you will be able to edit your captions.
