Popular Video Hosting Sites

If you're using a service, like YouTube 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

Other Videos

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 does not host videos — we simply overlay subtitles & tools on top of videos, wherever they're hosted.
