Can I upload a video to ojs?

Hello. Is there a way to upload a video to OJS? Thank you very much.

Hello,

Yes - provided OJS is appropriately setup, there is an option to add a multimedia component as part of the submission process: https://docs.pkp.sfu.ca/learning-ojs/en/settings-workflow#submission - allowing authors to upload a video submission as part of the article components.

Hello Cicero,
we published a video article as a test and decided to link the actual video to a Vimeo account (or YouTube) using the external link. We chose this process because the video was very very large… You may view it here: https://journals.aboutscience.eu/index.php/aboutopen/article/view/2159

It was a test, but we think it is a reasonable process.
Ciao

Thank you very much.

Upload: Yes. Stream: no, according to our tests. It’s better to embed via external video platforms such as Vimeo that are able to stream and to provide the right codecs depending on connectivity.
