Videos are a fantastic way to explain your products or services in more detail and share announcements. Let's take a look at how to do this inside the StoryChief social post editor.

Creating, uploading, publishing

Step 1. Go to your Social posts page.

Step 2. Either click on Edit on an existing post or choose new social post. The social post editor will appear.

Step 3. Activate channels you want to use and add a message. Click on the Video button.

πŸ”” Note: Videos must be smaller than 250 MB and use the MP4 format.

Step 4. Select one of the options to add a video. This can be by uploading from your computer, from the media library or from one of the DAMs to integrate.

Step 5. The video is now added to your social post. Click 'Publish' or 'Schedule' once you are ready to send it out. As uploading a video can take some time, it may be a few minutes until the post is published to your channels.

Video types

There are two types of published videos.

  1. Native: Videos are played within the social platform with autoplay.

  2. Embed: Video is displayed but does not support autoplay.
