Audio and Video

Even though audio and video files can be uploaded to a site’s Media folder (max file size of 65MB), it is recommended that you host them on a server specifically set up to stream media. The two most commonly used video hosting platforms used at the School of Medicine are YouTube and HeelStream. HeelStream is a on-campus service offered by the School of Medicine IT Department. Faculty and staff may request media libraries for course materials, special projects, and for website multimedia.
