The upload feature is a central administrative function that allows administrators, managers, and contributors to upload digital media in a specific channel library. Depending on your product package, you can upload videos, images, audio, documents, and SCORM content in your channel library.
Once the media has been uploaded, the media file will be transcoded into multiple formats and renditions. This ensures that the content is viewable across a wide range of devices under any bandwidth condition.
Note: This article shows video upload as an example. However, all other media types (audio, image, document, and SCORM) follow the same steps.
