Issue

Upload media to My Media that is saved to the hard drive on your device.

Resolution

  1. Navigate to My Media:
    • Canvas: Account > My Media.  
    • MiVideo MediaSpace: user drop-down menu > My Media.
  2. From My Media, click Add New > Media Upload
    • Note: If you are logged in and cannot find the Add New list you may not have the necessary upload rights, or your site is using a special layout. Contact your site or course administrator for help.
  3. Click Choose a file to upload and select your file
  4. While your file is uploading, edit the Name, Description, add Tags, and enter any custom metadata as needed. Be sure to click Save
    • You may see a publish status option at the bottom of the page depending on your site’s configuration. Media items cannot be published until all required fields are filled out and the item is saved. If all required fields are not completed, the media will still be saved to My Media, however it will have a private status. Publishing statuses are covered in the Publish Media article.
  5. Do not leave the page until the blue upload bar turns to green and you get a success message.
  6. There is a Choose another file button at the bottom of the page to add another file. You can upload files and save metadata on the same page, but be careful to make sure all the upload bars have turned green before navigating away.
  7. When the upload is complete, two links appear near the Save button:
    • Go to My Media directs you back to your all media list.
    • Go to Media directs you to view your newly uploaded media on the Media page.

Note: You will receive an email when the media is done processing with instructions on how to order captions for video and audio files. See the Order Captions article.
