Preparing Media Assets
Vocat can accommodate video, audio, and movie files in a range of formats. CREATORS will need to get their media assets into Vocat, and can do so through three paths: using the Vocat iPhone app (available from the iTunes Store), via upload from the web client, or, if working with video, via embeds from YouTube or Vimeo.
- If using the Vocat iPhone app, CREATORS can record or capture media directly via the app, or they can access their phone's media library and upload directly to their Vocat instance.
- If uploading directly via the web client, CREATORS must first make sure their video/image/audio vile is available and accessibly locally on an Internet-connected laptop or desktop, and then upload the file via the "Manage Media" button on their Vocat project.
- Creators may also upload videos to YouTube or Vimeo. As long as the video has a publicly-accessible URL (it cannot be password-protected) it will be embeddable in a Vocat submission.
