Uploading my Screencast-o-matic videos
Thomas Stanbury
After uploading my video tutorial on Screencastomatic, I copied the url code and downloaded the video to my computer. Sophia rejected both formats of videos. Hints? I'm going to use screencastomatic for my videos this year. I'd like to use sophia, but my website is my backup if I can't upload the videos.

Have you tried using the "insert" and then clicking on screen recording? This then sends you into Sophia's recording which is screencast-o-matic. Once you finish, you can then just upload directly into Sophia so no transfer is necessary.

Second, if you're adding a video, "insert" video, then "add file" and then find the mp4 on your computer. The URL that sophia accepts is only youtube so files seem to be what you are looking for.

Let me know if you need more help with this.

I use screencastomatic and I always upload to YouTube from the finishing pages of screencastomatic and Sophia seems to be OK with a YouTube URL.
