How do I add a video to my story in Mukurtu Mobile?

Last Updated: Jan 23, 2017 03:13PM PST
Whenever you are creating or editing a story in Mukurtu Mobile you can click on the add media button (the orange button with a camera icon) to add media to your story. You can then select video from the menu to choose and import a video from your gallery. You will then have to wait while Mukurtu processes your video.
Once added, the video will show up as a new thumbnail under your story's title, and can be previewed and deleted.

If an audio is added as your story's first media, the video thumbnail will become your story's cover, or preview thumbnail on search and group pages in your Mukurtu archive (you can always edit the story after uploading it).
Mukurtu Mobile utilizes Youtube standard for video compression and upload; the app generates a derivative video file maintaining a high visual quality on phones with a hi-res video output. You will be prompted to login to Youtube before you can upload videos as part of your stories. To login to your Youtube account, access the application Settings using the gear icon on the top right corner of the app's main view and enter the Preferences tab. Click near the Youtube logo to login into your chosen account.
