How do I upload a pre-recorded video?
In some situations, you may need or want to submit a video that has been previously recorded. This can be useful if you want to do multiple takes and have a chance to review them all before deciding which you like best and submitting it, or if you're the Group Video organizer and someone has sent you their Video Clip directly, via email, or text, instead of directly to the Group Video.
- Use the device that has the video file stored on it.
- Visit the Record & Upload Page of the Group Video using the Record & Upload Link.
- When presented with the option to either record or select/upload a video, choose to upload/select a video file from your device.
