  • "Description" is a description of the video, which you set. This usually includes more details on the video, any notes you want to save, etc. This field is optional.
  • If you select the "Video file" option, then you select the video file from your computer to be uploaded. Yodeck supports all popular video formats and codecs.
  • If you select the "YouTube" option, then you provide the link for the YouTube video you want to use. Just visit YouTube and copy the address of the video you want from the address bar. Then paste it into the field.
  • If you select the "PPT File" option, then you select a PPT video file from your computer to be uploaded. All transitions between the slides will be kept untouched.
  • If you select the "Stream" option, then you provide a URL link from your streaming platform.
