How do I copy a video or audio file in My Media?

You can use the editing tools in My Media to copy a video or audio file.

Creating a copy of a file will allow you to:

  • Schedule each copy to be available to viewers at different dates,
  • Publish a new copy when the existing file is already published in 32 sites or playlists at once,
  • Or use a separate copy of a video quiz in each course so submissions for each course can be viewed separately.

Note: Images and YouTube videos cannot be copied.

Go to Home.

When you first log into UVACollab, you are placed in your Home site.  If you are viewing another UVACollab site, select the Home tab in the favorites bar at the top of the screen, or in your My Sites list, to access it.

Select My Media.

Select My Media from the tool menu in your Home site.
