Mp4 Video

Jump to solution

Hi all-

Is there a way to embed an MP4 video to make it look like a You tube video---basically showing a video box that students will simply have to click "play" to watch. The only way I currently know how to embed a non- you tube video currently is by linking it to a text. Thanks for any help you can provide!

 @egeiserhogan1 ‌, if you upload the media file through the media uploader tool in the Rich Content Editor, it won't look like a YouTube video exactly, but it will be embedded and will present as a media file with a play button. For instructions, please refer to What types of media files can I upload in Canvas as an instructor?  and https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10391-4152719746

Trying to figure out how to save the .mpf4 file from google (which emailed

to me) on my computer so it becomes a file that is accepted by the Canvas

media uploader. Please advise. Thanks for your help so far! Smiley Happy
