This video shows how to upload videos on researchusa.org.
An step by step instruction sheet is available here.
While anyone can view and use most of the information contained in the portal, only registered members can upload videos. Registration is free and easy and can be done by filling in a form available here. A registered user can log in to the portal with his login and password and click the UPLOAD button located at the top right hand corner of the portal or click on the 'Upload Video' link just below the search field. An upload form appears where a few fields are mandatory and a few are optional. While most video formats are allowed, sometimes there are codec issues because of which a file, although uploaded, will not be playable. In some of these cases, file size shows as 0KB and runtime shows as 0:00 secs. In such cases, the user has to use some program (one is linked on the upload page of our portal to convert a file into flv and can be found here) and then try the upload again. However, in most cases this problem should not occur. In the page that follows, a browse window appears where the user can select a video file on his / her machine. Hitting 'Upload' starts the upload process and a progress bar shows the upload progress while information like time left for upload, estimated upload speed etc are continuously displayed till the upload is complete. It is safe to upload files up to 350 MB size.
