Hosting Options: Where to Upload a Video

Video Hosting at Rutgers

Unlike pictures and PDF documents, videos cannot be uploaded directly onto a Joomla! website. Instead, the video must be uploaded to a site that hosts video.  Once uploaded, the video can be displayed using the "All Videos" plugin.

Videos and Accessibility

All videos should be close-captioned before they are added to your website due to the accessibility requirements. Captioning is typically handled by the service providing video hosting.
