Can I Upload Video Directly to a Course in My Mighty Network?

Within your Course, you can add many different content types. You can add multiple images, videos and media, and file attachments within each Lesson, Section, and Course Overview.

Creating Video Content

Course Hosts and Instructors can upload video directly to the Course Overview, Sections, and Lessons, which will play right in your Mighty Network. (Also note that only Course Hosts and Instructors are able to delete videos that have been uploaded.)

The ability to upload videos to Courses is currently available on the web only. Once they’ve been uploaded, your members will be able to experience your videos seamlessly across the web and mobile apps. 

Here’s how to upload a video directly to a Course.  — When you’re in a Course Overview, Section, or Lesson, click the “+” to pull up the quick insert toolbar and you’ll see a new icon that says “Photo, Video, File” when you mouse over it. Click the icon to upload your video file. 


Select a video file. You’ll see a progress bar as it uploads, and then it will be greyed out as it is processing.


Your video is ready! You can change the preview thumbnail, select video tracking, and save it. 


Video Tracking

Video Tracking gives you the option to require all members to watch the video before moving on to the next resource. More about this and other completion features here.

Here are a few other things to know:

  • The max upload size per video is 2GB.
  • There isn’t a way to download video from your Course.
  • A wide range of file types are supported, including .mp4, .mov, and .m4v
  • You can’t save or close the Course content while the video is uploading. However, you can save it while the video is processing and navigate to another part of your Mighty Network. You’ll see a pop-up message when processing is complete.  
  • You still have the option to embed video from other platforms if you want. If you’ve previously embedded videos, you can choose to remove them and upload those natively. But you don’t need to take any action.
  • Members must watch the entire tracked video to unlock the next resource.
