How do I add media from YouTube and Vimeo in my Studio account?
If allowed by your institution, you can add media from YouTube and Vimeo in your Studio account. Once the YouTube or Vimeo video is added in Studio, you can add annotations, share access, and manage the media using the media tabs.
Currently, Studio does not support subtitles/closed captioning transcripts provided on media added from YouTube or Vimeo. To add captions to these media (if the copyright allows), you can add captions in Studio.
If a YouTube or Vimeo video's privacy settings change to restrict public access, the Studio player displays a notice. Contact the video owner and request an update to the video share settings.
Studio also supports uploading media files to your Studio account.
- Vimeo videos with an Unlisted privacy setting cannot be added to Studio.
- Admins can restrict users from adding media via YouTube or Vimeo. Learn more about managing permissions in Canvas Studio.
- When a YouTube video is embedded in Canvas Studio, it is still ultimately loaded from YouTube. If your institution blocks direct navigations to YouTube but allows YouTube embeds, Canvas Studio videos uploaded from YouTube will play.
- Currently, Studio does not support the replacement of the video thumbnail for media added from YouTube or Vimeo.
In Studio, click the Add Media icon.
Note: Admins can restrict users from uploading media from a device. Learn more about managing permissions in Canvas Studio.
