 Verzeichnis erstellen
  1. When logging in the organizational unit to which you are assigned (1) is opened automatically.
  2. You can create a new folder within the directory of your organizational unit by clicking the button "Create new directory" (2). Every user with access to the directory of your organizational unit will also have access to your newly created folder. However, the videos you upload are always visible only to yourself.

The JKU Video Manager only displays videos that you have uploaded yourself.

After uploading, the video can be embedded in Moodle immediately, but the production of the additional quality profiles may take longer.

Data backup

Please make sure that you back up your videos (on the network drive or an external hard drive). The JKU Video Manager is for provision and is not a backup of the original videos.
