UofT resource to publish your videos online, just like YouTube.
MyMedia - UofT Libraries
MyMedia is a media management service, providing storage, preservation, management and web access to your media files. Media files are streamed from our Flash Media Server.
The following file formats can be streamed directly from our server and do not require server side encoding:
- .flv (Flash)
- .f4v (Flash with the H.264 codec)
- .mp4 (with the H.264 codec)
- .mp3 (audio files, a default graphic will be used, however, you can upload a personalized image graphic)
- .swf (Shock Wave Flash with an embedded player)
The following file formats can be uploaded but will require server side encoding. Please note that we are still developing our encoding engine and have experienced some failures. Please drop us an email if your video fails to play at firstname.lastname@example.org :
- .mov (QuickTiome)
- .m4v (QuickTime)
- .mpg (MPEG Video format)
- .avi (Audio Video Interleave File)
- .3GP & .3G2 (3G mobile devices)
- .wmv (Window Media Video)
- .rm (Real Media
Your original files will be saved on the myMedia server and a copy will be reencoded into a standard .mp4 file with H.264 codec.
You have the following choices for access to your media:
- Free access -- freely viewable by anyone anywhere in the world
- UofT only access -- users must log in with a UTORid in order to view your media files
You will be asked to choose one of these options when you upload your media file.
All media files are converted to a streamable format. Streamable files may be viewed, but your users can not easily save and redistribute your media file.
You may also choose to make your files downloadable. This option allows your users to save your media file to their own device and view it later, much like a podcast. This also opens up the possibility that your media file may be easily redistributed.
You will be asked whether you wish your media file to be made available for download when you upload your media file.
