Here at Op Central we are big fans of video. It’s a great way to communicate a message, to train staff, demonstrate best practices, and keep staff engaged.
We support three different methods of using video in your content.
To add a video to a policy:
- Click the three dots (ellipses) along the right hand side, and then Video on the drop down menu.
Upload your video.
- Local/native upload: This comes with a size limit of 25mb and is very straight forward. Simply upload your file and you’re all set.
- Youtube Embed: Upload your video to Youtube as Unlisted (you can select public if you don't mind the general public seeing the video; Private videos do not work in Op Central though), ensure the "Allow Embedding" box is ticked (none others need to be - see reference image after video below). Open the uploaded video and copy the full URL (not the embed code), then paste the video URL in the provided field in Op Central.
- Vimeo Embed: Upload your video, set the “Where can this video be embedded?” setting to “Anywhere”. Then you’ll need to open the Distribution tab and copy the highest resolution link from the bottom of that area. Paste this link in the field provided in Op Central.
We highly recommend the use of Vimeo or YouTube simply because these are the best premium video delivery services in the world and deliver video content to your users better than anyone else.
- Add a title and description (optional), then click Submit when done. This will add the video to the policy content.
- If updating a previously published policy, clicking Update will NOT send a notification nor require any Roles marked mandatory to complete another sign off. To send notification and require re-confirmation, click Publish New Version.
- Any mandatory Roles will be required to watch the video before completing the sign-off, and cannot skip through. Accessible Roles will be able to watch the video but are not required, and can skip through if they wish.
Note: Only one video can be attached to a policy.
