  • 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


  • 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

  • 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
