My question relates to embedding vs uploading video. I understand that if the video is already being streamed from somewhere then it is possible to embed it in a resource. If however the video I want to share is a file then I am guessing that I need to upload it rather than embed it?!?

If this is the case are there any guidelines around optimum file size/ file formats? The schools in a cluster I am working with are each developing a digital story to share via the VLN as part of milestone reporting. I know that an LMS such as Ultranet limits the size of videos that can be uploaded (to <30MB I think). One of the schools has produced a 236 MB video. I am looking for guidance on how to proceed on this one.

    Further to the video discussion. I notice that schooltube is not one of the possible allowed embeds. One of the schools in our cluster is using Schooltube for embedding videos onto their Spike@School site. They have a video they would like to post onto the VLN. Is it possible? The video is approximately 300MB. I have the embedded code. It seems to upload okay and then when I press save it disappears.
