Issue

How do I replace media in MiVideo?

Resolution

The Replace Media tab on the Edit Media page allows you to replace the video with a new version.

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:
    • 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 Replace Media tab

Notes:

  • Sometimes you need to make a change to a published video. Replacing media is great for swapping out the original upload with a new version without breaking embed code or losing analytics
  • Replacing video with a timeline will break the timeline’s configuration
  • Be sure you document any timeline settings and have backups of your slides before replacing the video
  • You cannot replace a video that has an embedded interactive quiz
  • You cannot replace media in Canvas
  • You can Replace Video on YouTube media
  1. Click either Upload from Desktop or Upload from URL depending on where the replacement video is stored

Tips:

  • The “old” video will continue to display until processing is complete on the server
  • To replace audio, please contact the ITS Service Center or your KMC administrator for assistance
