  4. Select your video file 
  5. Add a thumbnail image and update the name 
  6. Click "Upload Video"

File Requirements

Your video must be in MP4 format and the file size cannot exceed 10GB. 

Important Notes

Do not close the page once the video is done uploading because the video is transcoding in the backend. The transcoding will take about the same amount of time as the length of the video file.

DO NOT CLOSE YOUR MAESTRO INSTANCE UNTIL THE VIDEO IS DONE TRANSCODING.
