Add Media

In the paste URL field [1], you can paste a URL (must be https) for your media file. If your file is located on your computer, you can upload your supported media file, or you can directly drag and drop the file from your desktop into the File Upload field [2]. You can also add Studio media to a slide [3].

Note: If you add videos, images, or audio clips, they will be embedded in the slide. If you add any other kind of supported file, it will display as a file attachment.

If you navigate away from a slide before the video has finished uploading, a popup window will be displayed with a warning message.

To remain on the current slide to allow the video upload to continue, click the Cancel button. To cancel the upload, click the OK button.
