Upload Video to the Streaming Server (Faculty)
This document provides an overview of how to upload your videos to the SIUE Streaming Media Server.
Upload Videos from the SIUE Streaming Media Server
To have your videos uploaded to the Streaming Media Server, contact the ITS Help Desk at 618-650-5500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Production Services personnel will contact you to make arrangements to received your video files. Please note that Production Services follows copyright laws for non-original work. It is the responsibility of the faculty to obtain copyright permission in writing (via email, digital, or paper copy) and provide that to Production Services before any work can begin. When your videos have been streamed, you will receive an email with the web links and other information for using them in your course.
Link to video:
If you are going to link to the video, copy the URL from the email. Look for the URL that begins with https://streaming.siue.edu/player/. If you only have the embed code in your email, look for the link that begins with https:// and end with letters and numbers. Do not include the parentheses " " in the link.
Follow the instructions below to link to the video in Blackboard.
Embed codes let you insert the video directly into the course; students can watch the video on-screen rather than clicking a link to open in a new window. This is what embed code will look like:
<iframe src="https://streaming.siue.edu/player/ho5YjQ6ReGq5" width="640" height="480" scrolling="no" frameborder="0"></iframe>
If you choose to use the embed code, you will need to copy it from the email sent by Production Services. Follow the instructions below to embed the video into Blackboard.
