Adding audio and video

You can use these instructions to upload and embed several types of audio and video formats, including MP3 and MP4 files.

  • Scroll down to My portfolios and select the title of the page to which you wish to add the audio/MP4 recording.
  • Select the Edit pencil icon at the top-right of the page to enter edit mode.
  • In the menu on the left-hand side of the page, select Media then Embedded media. Drag and drop the tab to a cell or select a cell in the pop-up window.
  • Enter a Block title, then select the drop down arrow to the right of Media.

  • Tick the check box confirming you are allowed to use the file you want to embed, select the copyright type via the License drop down menu, then Choose Files to upload. If you have previously imported MP4 files in your Mahara profile, they will be listed in the Home section, at the bottom of the Embedded media: Configure dialogue box.
  • Select Save in the window that appears after you import your MP4 file. The file will then appear on your page.
  • Finally, you can scroll down and select Display page, but this step is not necessary to save your file.
