Issue

How do I attach files so viewers can download them?

Resolution

The Attachments tab on the Edit Media page allows you to attach files to the media entry so that viewers can download them from the Attachments tab found under the media player on the Media page or the Playlist Playback page.

Notes:

  • To edit a media item you have to be the media owner or co-editor of the content. See the Media Collaboration and Roles article for information about ownership
  • The editing tabs may vary depending on your role
  • To edit the media file (trim, chop, splice, copy, and add hotspots and Interactive Video Quizzes) see the Video Editor articles
  1. Navigate to the Edit Media page:
    • Canvas: Account > My Media > pencil icon next to the media item
      • or from the Media page, click Actions > Edit
    • MiVideo MediaSpace: user drop-down menu > My Media > pencil icon next to the media item.
      • or from the Media page, click Actions > Edit
  2. Select the Attachments tab
  3. To add a new file, click the Upload File button
  4. The Title and Description are optional, but useful if the viewers cannot discern the contents from the filename
  5. Click Save
  6. Wait for the upload progress bar to turn green before closing the window

In the attachments tab you can use the icons next to each file to manage that file.

  • Pencil icon: Edit the file's Title and/or Description
  • "X" icon: Delete the file. This cannot be undone
  • Down arrow icon: Download the file
