How to Add Audio/Video Files from your computer:

There are two main options to add audio or video to your portfolio. They are (1) uploading a file directly from your computer (2) embedding content from the internet.

Note: cuPortfolio has a maximum file upload size of 25 MB and your account storage size is 100 MB. If you would like to add a video or audio file without taking up space on your portfolio, you can upload the file to an external host (such as YouTube) and embed it into your portfolio.

1. Go to the Edit Content View of a Page and click on Media in the dropdown menu.

2. Drag and drop the Embedded media block into your page.

3. Change the Block title.

4. Click the Upload file agreement box.

5. Click Choose files (or Browse).

6. Click Save.

Note: cuPortfolio is compatible with the following file formats:

  • AVI video
  • FLV Flash movie
  • MP3 video file
  • MP4 Video file
  • QuickTime movie
  • FWF flash movie
  • WMV video file

If your file is not one of the above formats, you will have to convert it. For example, you can convert audio files into MP3 format using a free online converting tool. If you Google “convert file to MP3” you will find several free audio converter websites. Alternatively, you can upload your file to an external host (such as YouTube or Soundcloud) and embed it into your portfolio.
