What is the MB limit of videos I can upload for student viewing?
Hi Loyola -
According to this lesson -- What types of media files can I upload in Canvas as an instructor? --
When you upload audio and media files using the media tool in the Rich Content Editor, Canvas converts files up to 500 MB. If a file exceeds the 500 MB limit, you can host the file through an external source such as YouTube and embed it using the Rich Content Editor.
I usually use Google Drive or YouTube (unlisted URLs) to host my screencasts and then embed them. I like that I can include a lot of content without influencing my course's storage. I think that the Canvas Media Comparison chart will be a great reference for you.
There are some limitations to the overall course size as well. I believe Canvas has a 500MB default course file storage size, but your institution can make adjustments to that.
According to this lesson --How do I set details for a course? --
You can view the storage file size allowed in your course. File storage consists of all files in course files and assignment submissions. Administrators at your institution set the file storage quota for each course.
I hope this is helpful! Good luck with your media uploads and sharing.
