Before You Record

Please read through this guide prepared by Ed Green, our video editor extraordinaire who puts our weekly online service together each week.

Note: if you are uploading your video for use in our weekly online service, please have your video uploaded by Friday at noon at the absolute latest.

Upload from Your Phone

  1. If you are uploading from a mobile phone, we recommend you use wi-fi as opposed to your mobile data plan.
  2. Click here.
  3. Click the “Choose Files” button to open a file selection dialog.  Select the video file to upload.

  4. On the iPhone, there’ll be a pause, sometimes quite long depending on the length of your video, while the video is being prepped to upload. Be patient, eventually, you’ll be able to click the ‘done’ button.
  5. Enter your name and email address.

  6. Your phone will need about the same amount of time to upload as the duration of the video.  You should see a progress indicator SLOWLY incrementing.  Do NOT hit any additional buttons on your phone until the upload is complete.  If your screen blanks because your phone was inactive, that is ok.

  7. When your upload is complete, you will see a confirmation screen. This sends an automatic notice to CUMC that there is a new video to review. It is safe to ignore the solicitation to create a dropbox account (bottom area). It is now safe to close the browser.
  8. Send Ed Green (edgreen7@gmail.com) an email letting him know to expect your file.

Upload from Your Computer

  1. Click here.
  2. Click on the blue “Upload Files” button.

  4. Enter your name and email then click upload.
  5. Do not interrupt the file upload until it is fully complete.
  6. When your upload is complete, you will see a confirmation screen. This sends an automatic notice to CUMC that there is a new video to review.  It is safe to ignore the solicitation to create a dropbox account (bottom area). It is now safe to close the browser.
  7. Send Ed Green (edgreen7@gmail.com) an email letting him know to expect your file.
