Video upload in Stud.IP with the Video Manager

With the video plug-in you can upload short screencasts, explanatory videos and other types of videos to Stud.IP. In addition, you can create playlists and organise your videos thematically with them.

Note: When uploading to Stud.IP via this plug-in, the maximum file size is limited to 500 MB!
This makes it particularly suitable for shorter videos (e.g. explanatory videos), while for longer videos such as complete lecture recordings, uploading via the OpenCast-Plugin is the better choice.

If you want to upload larger video files, you have the following options:

  • Compress your video, e.g. with the tool Handbrake (instructions)
  • Use the OpenCast plug-in for uploading instead (instructions)
