Amara Community

To add your video to the site, simply paste in the URL to your video here: http://www.amara.org/en/videos/create/


 

If you're using a service, like YouTube, Dailymotion, or Vimeo, just paste in the URL from the webpage with the video on it.

 

YouTube URL example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zgfi7wnGZlE

 


 


 

If you're hosting your own video, using a custom video player, or a host like BrightCove we'll need a direct URL to the video file (eg. URL should end in .mp4, .flv, .ogg etc).
 

 

Video URL example:  http://www.archive.org/download/MickeyMouse-RunawayTrain/Film-42.mp4
 

 

Note: Amara never hosts videos — we simply overlay subtitles & tools on top of videos, wherever they're hosted.
