These requirements must be met before embedding a video into a web page

  • Videos must be first uploaded into Panopto, YouTube, or Vimeo to ensure smooth streaming quality. Video files (which are typically very large) may NOT be uploaded directly to the www.fredonia.edu website.

  • Videos must have Closed Captions (CC or Subtitles) included and enabled in them. This ensures that that we meet all web media accessIbility requirements for users with hearing impairments.
