    How can I set up the allowed video types in the upload field?

    Asked by INNO  on October 15, 2016 at 03:51 PM

    Hi there,


    I need to know what form should I choose if I want visitors to uploader youtube or other videos to the form? Normally like bigger file videos/longer videos. Is there anything that you can recommand?

    If you need to get videos from YouTube I think you may simply ask for the link in a text box field: 

    However, if you want to use the upload file field you can set the allowed fields types in your form, this guide will help with that: How-to-Change-the-Allowed-File-Types-Extensions-in-the-Upload-Field

    You will also need to change the max file upload size and this guide will help you with that: Changing-the-upload-size-limit

    And please do note that each time a file is uploaded in your form it will use available space in your account, if you have a free account you will only be able to get 100 MB in uploaded files; however, you may also check our pricing page in order to know the available upload space per plan so you may upgraded to the needed plan: https://www.jotform.com/pricing
