Upload a video from my computer as the source

Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to upload a video from my computer as the source. Can you help me? The video module only allows doing so with a URL.

Hi @Dorian_Libotte,

The main problem is where are you going to store that video? You can't store them in your app because they're too big.

Since videos are so big and take so much storage, they're really expensive to store in a database which is why people will usually upload it to a place like Youtube as an unlisted video and then just reference the url. I think that's probably the best way to go. If you're really worried about security and want to be able to authenticate who gets to see your video you could also look into https://www.mux.com


Thank you very much for your response. I will discuss it with my client to see what they want, but we will likely use the URL system. Thank you again.
