    How to let users to upload video files

    Asked by Mike Vaughn on November 02, 2016 at 05:29 PM



    I am the Director of Education at Berkeley Community Media, a not-for-profit public access television station and media training facility. I am producing a film festival in February, and have created a registration form with JotForm. I like the ease and interface with the form I created.


    My problem is I thought I cold use the "upload files" to have people submit and upload short films (about 10 minutes in length)using a .mov or mp4 file.  I only now see that you can not do this. 


    So, is there a way I can make a submission/registration form with JotForm and have my participants upload a .mov and or a mp4? 


    It is kind of critical that this part be able to work. 


    Thanks, and I appreciate in advance any expeditious way you can help me. 



    Regards, Your New Fan in Berkeley,


    Mike Vaughn

    Dear Mike,

    Thank you for contacting us. You can let your users upload a video as the following example screen below:

    You can add an upload field on your form and even customize the file types/extensions that you can accept. You can also adjust the minimum and maximum file size that the file can receive. This guide can give you more information regarding the file upload field: https://www.jotform.com/help/332-How-to-Create-Upload-Forms

    Moreover, maybe you want to check our video uploading template: https://www.jotform.com/form-templates/cmv-video-upload

    Additionally, I've seen that you are using Google Drive link in your form. You can integrate your form with Google Drive. When users click Submit button, related data directly saves to Google Drive. Please check this following widget link: https://apps.jotform.com/app/google_drive_integration and also please check the user guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/192-How-to-Integrate-a-Form-with-Google-Drive
