How to upload video to open edx instead of YouTube or other video url

Hi @Abel_Getu,

Absolutely, you can host your videos directly on your Open edX platform without relying on third-party services like YouTube. Here are the steps to upload a video to your course:

  • Navigate to Studio/CMS.
  • Select the course you want to work on. From the “Content” dropdown menu, choose “Files & Uploads.”
  • You will be directed to a page that provides an option to upload files. Use this feature to upload your video file.
  • After uploading, copy the “Web” URL provided for the uploaded file. This URL will be used in the video block to embed your video in the course.

Please note, by default, the system allows a maximum file size of 100MB for uploads. But you can change it from settings.
