How can I upload a video from my phone into MediaSpace?


  1. Record your video with your Android or iPhone/iPad camera application.
  2. In your mobile devices web browser, navigate to and log in with your StarID and password.
    • Warning: uploading video can use a lot of data. We recommend that you only upload video when you have a wifi connection or unlimited data plan.
  3. Click the + in the top right corner of the window and select Media Upload from the drop down menu.
  4. Select Choose a file to upload button and select the video you want to upload.
    • iPhones will commonly have videos stored in the phones camera role.
    • Android phones typically store files in the Documents/Gallery.
  5. A progress bar will show when the upload is complete.
  6. File name, description, tags, and file access permissions can be changed.
  7. Select Save to complete the process.

When you upload media to your MediaSpace account, you will need to select one of the three file sharing permissions settings. This setting can be changed later, so pick the setting that best applies at the moment:

  • Private: Only you will be able to access the file.
    • Faculty - If you are adding the videos to D2L with the "Insert Stuff" or "Existing Activities" method, you can still use this Private setting.
  • Unlisted: Only those with a link to the file that you provide will be able to access it. Select this option if you want to share your video using a direct link to the video that you might share via email.
    • Student - If you are sharing a video with your instructor please select Unlisted as the sharing permissions so they can view the video.
  • Published: Assign the file to a MediaSpace channel. Note: this option could make your video publicly available to all Minnstate.
