    Direct video file upload from smartphone?

    Asked by onion3d on August 20, 2016 at 09:23 PM

    Hello -

    How can I use the upload file feature to link to our cloud storage? We want users to be able to go to our upload page containing the jotform link. The upload button would allow users to choose and upload video files directly from their smartphone.

    We are currently looking into Amazon Web Services and Google Drive for storage options.

    Thank you,

    Tom Cipolla

    Hi Tom,

    If I understand your would be process correctly, this will actually be quite simple to achieve.

    If you add the Upload field on your form, the user will be able to use the form to upload video file using smartphone device.

    Hi Jonathan -
    I tested the page on a new sub-domain, which works fine.
    http://onion3d.com/tenjingroup.com/
    However there seems to be a size limit on video upload. Can this be raised?
    200 Megs or more?
    Thank you,
    Tom

    I'm glad you got it all sorted out on the video file upload topic.

    Since your last question is somewhat different from the topic being discussed here, I'm moving it on a separate thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/912457

    We'll have your question addressed there shortly.
