What's Next

For information on uploading media files directly from your computer to MediaCentral, please click here.

Next, you may wish to share the links to your MediaCentral content. There are two primary means of sharing: 'Link,' and 'Embed.'

'Linking' gives you a web address which you can copy and paste into a message or web page, for others to click on, so they may view your video in a new browser window.

'Embedding' gives you a paragraph of code, which can be copied and pasted into an appropriate field in your web page, that includes a media player so viewers can view your video file without leaving your web page.

For BrightSpace users, this is how you embed your new video within a course.
