How do I upload media files in my Canvas Studio account?

In Canvas Studio, you can upload media files from your device by dragging and dropping a file into the My Library page or using the Add Media icon. Studio supports uploading individual media files, and you can upload an individual media file or multiple individual files at once.  The maximum file size for a media file upload is 10 GB. Learn more about supported file formats.

Once the media file is uploaded in Studio, you can add annotations, share access, and manage the media using the media tabs.

Studio also supports adding videos from YouTube and Vimeo via URL.
