Instructions on uploading a video to MediaHub.
Toggle between list and paragraph view.
- [00:00:01.080]Hi, I'm Keith McGuffey and I'm
a web specialist with IANR media,
- [00:00:04.770]going to talk to you about media
hub, which can be found at
- [00:00:10.150]And then you can think of MediaHub
as a university's answer to YouTube.
- [00:00:13.650]It's a place to store and view videos
and allows for easy video embeds on
- [00:00:18.030]websites. You might wonder why we
used MediaHub instead of YouTube. Uh,
- [00:00:22.590]there's a few reasons.
- [00:00:23.670]One is that YouTube is blocked in a lot
of countries and a lot of schools as
- [00:00:28.530]Another reason is captions. Captions make
your videos accessible and searchable.
- [00:00:34.380]MediaHub makes both captions in
the video and a transcript that can be
- [00:00:39.000]searched by search engines.
- [00:00:40.800]This makes it more likely that someone
looking for your content is able to find
- [00:00:44.070]it. Now, obviously these are important
for folks with hearing disabilities,
- [00:00:48.510]but they also help anyone working in an
area where they can't necessarily hear
- [00:00:52.290]the audio. I like to think of the
workspace I share with Ann,
- [00:00:56.250]we work in the same office office, and
while we each have our own cubicle, uh,
- [00:01:00.870]if my computer is blaring audio,
that might be distracting to her.
- [00:01:03.990]So I'd read the captions or
the transcripts instead.
- [00:01:08.010]YouTube has some automatic captions
that are generated by computers,
- [00:01:12.540]but we don't want to rely on those
because they're very inaccurate. Um,
- [00:01:16.410]for example, I used to work
in the Department of Child,
- [00:01:19.200]Youth and Family Studies, and I
once uploaded a video featuring Dr.
- [00:01:23.940]Dipti Dev, um,
- [00:01:26.400]the YouTube automatically computer
generated captions, captions
- [00:01:31.160]her name as Dr. Dipti Death. Um,
- [00:01:35.820]this is something we want to avoid
because Doctor Dipti Dev is a renowned
- [00:01:40.380]researcher in childhood nutrition.
Doctor death is a super villain.
- [00:01:45.030]With MediaHub, we know that the
captions are being made by a person,
- [00:01:49.410]not a computer. Now MediaHubs
sorts content based on channels.
- [00:01:54.840]So to start,
- [00:01:55.650]we need to confirm whether or not your
office already has a MediaHub channel.
- [00:01:59.370]We don't want to be creating
multiple of the same type of channel.
- [00:02:03.840]So under the channel option
in the red navigation,
- [00:02:08.340]you can search MediaHub
for your office's channel.
- [00:02:12.600]I'm going to just real quick click on
this Nebraska forest service trainings
- [00:02:16.080]channel. If I scroll to the bottom here,
- [00:02:20.130]I can see this is maintained
- [00:02:24.360]So if I need access to the channel,
I would contact this person.
- [00:02:29.160]If a new channel needs to be created, uh,
- [00:02:31.020]we can do that under
the managed media option.
- [00:02:35.310]On this page here, this is
where you'll upload a video.
- [00:02:38.220]Give us some information.
Under the channels box here,
- [00:02:42.540]there's an option to
create a new channel here,
- [00:02:45.480]or there's a box at the very bottom.
- [00:02:48.570]The little '+ New Channel' will let you
create a channel without having to upload
- [00:02:53.070]a video.
- [00:02:55.710]So let me quickly run through
uploading a video, creating a channel,
- [00:02:59.920]and then embedding that
video on your website.
- [00:03:03.910]So I'm at MediaHub.unl.edu. I'm
going to go to manage media.
- [00:03:07.840]And in here I can either click and
drag a file to this box or just click and
- [00:03:12.010]it will open a file browser for
me and upload the video there.
- [00:03:16.960]Um, I will give this a
title, I'll say, test video.
- [00:03:21.400]The author has me for this video
and I'll give it a quick description.
- [00:03:26.830]In this next column, I can
set the privacy of the video.
- [00:03:30.160]So if I want only folks who have access
to this channel to be able to access
- [00:03:35.110]this file, I'll set it to private.
Public lets anyone view it,
- [00:03:39.340]and then there's unlisted and protected.
Just pick whatever works best for you.
- [00:03:44.170]Under channels, I can select an existing
channel that I already have access to.
- [00:03:48.130]Um, like I said, I want to create
a new channel with this example.
- [00:03:51.780]So I'm just going to call
this 'Keith's test channel'.
- [00:03:56.290]Optimization settings, I usually don't
do much with this. Um, I just let the,
- [00:04:01.840]the computer figure it out for
me. Single file quarter HD.
- [00:04:05.050]Once you have all the uploaded, you
can say next step, add captions.
- [00:04:10.150]Okay. So we're taken to this page.
- [00:04:13.420]We can see our videos being optimized. Um,
- [00:04:15.820]we have options to edit the
media or view the media.
- [00:04:19.810]If we scroll down just a bit. Um,
- [00:04:22.300]this is the easiest way to add
captions to your video. Um,
- [00:04:25.810]you just do it with a cost object number
here in this little box and say 'order
- [00:04:29.230]captions'. It costs $1.25 per minute to add captions.
- [00:04:34.480]You can also add your own captions with
Amara. Um, I only have 10 minutes, so
- [00:04:38.590]I'm not going to go all
the way into Amara,
- [00:04:40.060]but basically you need to sign
up for an account with them. Um,
- [00:04:43.900]and then you'll be able to type as
you listen to the video and then go
- [00:04:48.730]back and sync up what
you've typed with the video.
- [00:04:52.870]I found it takes about five to 10
minutes per minute of video for me to do
- [00:04:57.670]them. So for me,
- [00:04:59.050]it's a lot more cost effective to
just pay this $1.25 a minute. Um,
- [00:05:04.030]and I don't have to worry about it.
They're done within 24 hours. Um,
- [00:05:07.990]and there's nothing that needs to do on
my end to pull those captions into the
- [00:05:11.560]video. Okay. Um,
- [00:05:18.720]let's go to 'edit media'
and on this page, again,
- [00:05:23.460]since I don't have captions, I'm just
being prompted to do captions again.
- [00:05:28.050]Clicking 'caption this video' will take
us back to that last page we were on. Um,
- [00:05:32.070]if you need to caption the
video well after the fact,
- [00:05:34.230]there's also an 'order/edit
captions' button at the very bottom.
- [00:05:37.830]So no lack of ways to order
or edit the captions for
- [00:05:42.480]video. By default,
- [00:05:45.450]the system is going to just pick an
image to use as the thumbnail that
- [00:05:50.220]shows before the video starts playing.
- [00:05:53.790]Or you can set beside
automatically by playing the video.
- [00:05:57.290]I'm just going to skip forward here...
I like this picture with a snake.
- [00:06:01.320]I would like that to be on the thumbnail.
- [00:06:02.480]So I'll just say set image up
here in the corner takes a second,
- [00:06:07.010]but you can see here,
- [00:06:07.670]this thumbnail video now matches
what's on the screen here.
- [00:06:12.200]We can also set a custom thumbnail
- [00:06:14.940]that's not in the video by going to
this custom poster image and putting a
- [00:06:19.820]URL of an image down there. On this page,
- [00:06:23.720]there's a lot of other options. Um, if,
- [00:06:26.330]if during upload something was wrong
with either the title author description,
- [00:06:30.740]I can edit those here.
And I can site a credit,
- [00:06:34.140]give it a category or copyright,
give it tags if I want to. Um,
- [00:06:38.990]if there's a new version of the video,
- [00:06:41.510]you can swap that out for a new MP4, uh,
- [00:06:44.390]with this little box right
here and again, click and drag,
- [00:06:47.000]or just click on that box will bring
up the, uh, file browser for you.
- [00:06:52.850]Again, edit the publicity here as well.
- [00:06:56.960]And if we need to put this on a different
channel or take it out of a channel,
- [00:07:00.380]we can do that here as well. Okay.
- [00:07:07.250]Now my video is uploaded.
I have my channel made,
- [00:07:11.960]how do I access all of that? Let me
can go back to just base MediaHub,
- [00:07:15.290]MediaHub.unl.edu. On this page,
- [00:07:19.070]I'm going to go to
'manage media'. And again,
- [00:07:21.980]this is where we uploaded a file and
create a new channel. At the bottom of
- [00:07:26.870]this page,
- [00:07:27.530]I can see all the channels that I
have access to. I uploaded did that video
- [00:07:32.450]to 'Keith's test channel'. So I'll go to
that channel. Scrolling down a bit,
- [00:07:37.490]we can see here's the test
video that I uploaded.
- [00:07:43.370]If I need to edit this
channel for any reason, uh,
- [00:07:46.160]this big red 'edit' button
here is what you'll use here.
- [00:07:50.570]You can change the title and
the description of the channel.
- [00:07:54.260]You can also choose an image that
looks a little better than this kind of
- [00:07:57.920]generic radio tower that
you're set as for default.
- [00:08:03.770]You can give that a title
and description as well.
- [00:08:07.850]I usually don't mess much with the, uh,
- [00:08:09.800]iTunes and RSS options, uh, because I, I,
- [00:08:14.820]I don't have these going out to
any feeds. Usually I just put the,
- [00:08:18.920]the video directly into a
website. Um, so you can,
- [00:08:23.270]you can leave those alone.
- [00:08:25.880]If you need to add someone to your
channel or it takes them away from your
- [00:08:29.300]the 'edit channel users' is in this red
text here right next to edit the channel.
- [00:08:34.970]So let's click on that. In
here, you get a little portrait of,
- [00:08:39.800]of every person who has access
to the channel. Hovering over
- [00:08:42.680]it gives you this red X that lets you
delete them from the channel. To add
- [00:08:47.000]someone new, you just
put in their My.UNL username
- [00:08:48.770]in this field here. Okay.
- [00:08:53.300]Let me go back to 'manage media',
going to find that video again.
- [00:08:55.950]So 'manage media', go into my channel,
- [00:09:00.510]scroll down a bit. Here's my video. Now,
- [00:09:04.950]if I want to embed this
video into my website,
- [00:09:09.390]click this little 'embed
button' here, copy this code.
- [00:09:15.630]And see here,
- [00:09:16.110]we can also download the video. Or
we can edit those details again.
- [00:09:20.820]And that's taken us back to this page
where we set the thumbnail and everything,
- [00:09:25.320]but I want to embed. So 'embed',
- [00:09:27.780]copy and go to my test site here.
- [00:09:32.580]I'll say edit. Now, on this page,
- [00:09:37.470]we need to switch our body from WYSIWYG,
which is 'What You See Is What You Get',
- [00:09:42.030]that's like
a word document, to HTML,
- [00:09:46.110]which is code. Paste this
in there. And then just
- [00:09:50.840]say 'Save'.
- [00:09:56.690]Now you can see we've got a
video embedded on the website.
- [00:10:01.580]I believe Anne is going to now talk about
how to track some statistics for this.
- [00:10:06.200]And I hope to see you all of you in the
Q and A session afterwards. Thank you.
