Here's a video version of this tutorial:

To upload a video to your GoReact account:

 

1. Record the Video

Record your video on any recording device (camcorder, mobile device, etc.)  See our list of Supported Formats if you need more information on video formats. Video quality note: You'll want to record in standard definition (VGA) video size, so you don't create an unnecessarily large file to upload. See the Video Recording Checklist for details, and for tips on best practices when recording.

If you recorded using a non-connected device (such as a camcorder), transfer your video to your PC.

 

2. Select an Activity

If your instructor has created activities, select the activity you wish this video to belong to in the lower left panel of the dashboard.  If no activities have been created, proceed to Step 3.

 

3. Click "Upload" on your GoReact Dashboard

Open your GoReact Dashboard on a browser (PC or mobile) and click the “Upload” button. Choose your video file, as well as the appropriate activity, presenters, etc. 

 

4. Complete the Upload.

Once selected, your video will now upload. This may take some time, depending on your video file size and your internet connection speed.  After it uploads, you will see it processing (may also take a few minutes).  Once complete, you will receive an email confirmation that your upload was successful.

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Every account has a file size limit on uploads, depending on the account type. Your file size limit will display on the Upload box on your Dashboard.

If you are receiving an error on your upload, the error will tell you if the file was too big or if it failed to process due to an unsupported format. See our list of Supported Formats as well as Converting a Video for more information if you need to re-save your video in an acceptable size/format.

If your file consistently fails but is a supported format within the file size limit, it is very likely due to a poor internet connection.  GoReact requires a minimum, consistent upload speed of 0.5Mb/s (separate from your download speed).  For devices that support Flash, you can check your upload speed by going to www.speedtest.net and clicking the "Begin Test" button.  When the test completes, your upload speed will be shown in the top right corner of the test results.  If your indicated speed is less than 0.5Mbps you will most likely be unable to upload your file and will need to try again on a different network or internet connection.
