Moved from email, so that we can figure all of this together:

I’d like to copy my Zoom links directly into Studio rather than downloading them first to my computer.  I could not find a way to do that.

First, you will need to download your Zoom recording (I believe it's an mp4 file). 

Then, you will be able to upload the video to Canvas Studio and embed it into your course to make it available to students.

What I have done is create a YouTube channel. Then I create a playlist for each of my courses, and upload videos from iphone, Zoom, computer, etc to YouTube in the appropriate playlist.

YouTube auto captioning isn't the best, so I got setup with 3 Play Media (contact John Cavano if you need an account) Although - I have heard that Zoom's auto captioning is really good. 
When I linked my YouTube video the captioning did not come along - so I simply downloaded the transcript from 3 Play Media (in SRT format per the Studio Usrs Guide) and uploaded that and it works.

This way I have all my videos in one place, and if we move away from Canvas Studio after our two year gratis trial - than I don't have to move them all again (If YouTube goes away we have more serious problems than our videos)

 

My $.02 worth

Hi,

I have already had multiple videos recorded on Zoom and tried to upload the mp4 files to Studio. Since last night it keeps giving me the "wait" circle. I had to close the browser to clear the cache every time on every page.

Does anyone have a workaround?

@Gerry, Yes, I have been having the same problem with Chrome and Studio. I have to clean my cache regularly. However, I can usually upload or embed Studio videos with Firefox without any problems.

What browser are you using?

Sorry I hit edit on your post instead of approve so it says I edited your post.

Gerry,

I just successfully uploaded two Zoom videos to Studio and I used Chrome.  I downloaded the videos to my desktop and used the add feature in Studio.  Perhaps there was a network issue last night.  To be fair they were very small test videos that I made just to try it out.

I have found that a simple restart of my computer and browser works wonders in many instances.

Gerry & Aaron:

Another instructor reported to me the other day that she had to clear her browser's cache in order for Studio to stop spinning and finally upload her videos. This was with Chrome.

Surely, we shouldn't have to do this all the time. I looked into it in Canvas support forums and here is a useful page with some relevant information:

It appears that some extensions or cookies may be the culprit.
