Multimedia files can now be converted directly within the CMS
In order to use multimedia files (video and audio) within the CMS in a correct format, the files need to be converted. Until now, you had to send these files to the Minddistrict Servicedesk for conversion. This is no longer needed: from now on, you can convert files directly in your own CMS. Anyone with the 'editor' role can do this. This is how it works:
- Go to the CMS via 'Content' in the main menu
- Click on the link 'Media conversion'
- Drag and drop your media file(s) in the designated area on that page (or search on your computer via the 'Browse files' button)
- Wait until all files have been uploaded (the waiting time depends on the number and size of your files)
- The conversion starts. This may take a while. It's safe to navigate away from the page.
- As soon as the conversion is done, a download button will appear.
- Save the file on your computer. You can now use it in your content.
Good to know
- Converted files remain available for download for 1 week and are deleted afterwards.
- Only you have access to your converted files. Other editors cannot see or download your converted files.
