How to do I upload a video to my Campaign Page?

A video is a great way to bring your campaign page to life! If you have a video that you want to share, read on for a step-by-step guide to upload your video to your campaign page.

Check your video file

First, make sure you have the correct video format. ioby campaign pages can only accept a video URL hosted by Vimeo or YouTube (a FULL YouTube URL like youtube.com/example. The template youtu.be/example will not work). Any other text will cause the page to appear incorrectly.

If you do not have a video file in one of these formats, check out these links for help uploading a video to YouTube or Vimeo, or reach out to your Success Strategist at success@ioby.org for assistance.

Update your page

Once you have the correct file format, navigate to your campaign page.

First, make sure you're logged in.

Then, navigate to your campaign page. To upload a video, select "Edit" on your toolbar.

Then, click on the "Extras" tab

You will upload your video URL under the "Add project video" section towards the bottom of the page under any photos you may have uploaded.

Insert a Title for your video, and paste the video URL into the URL box.

Remember:  the video format must be a Vimeo or YouTube URL. Any other text will cause the page to appear incorrectly.

Don't forget to save! After titling your video and pasting the video URL in the URL box, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the "Submit for Review" button to save your changes.

This will take you to a Thank You! page.

Check your work

To check that the upload was successful, navigate back to your campaign page. Your uploaded video should now appear as the main thumbnail or poster frame on your campaign page.

If your video isn't playing properly, please check out our Support Center articles for help troubleshooting your Youtube or Vimeo videos.
