Add a Video

Videos can be added to a webpage either by first publishing the video file on YouTube or by uploading the file directly to Brightspot. Departments are encouraged to submit their videos for publishing on the BYU–Hawaii YouTube channel rather than uploading the videos to personal
YouTube accounts or creating department accounts. For more information about BYU–Hawaii YouTube accounts and how to request that a video be uploaded, see the YouTube Best Practices page.
