1 - Log into Yuja

  • Go to https://und.yuja.com/ and click the Login button in the upper right corner of the page.
  • Sign in with your NDUS.identifier (firstname.lastname).
  • OR you can click any YuJa link in your Blackboard course to open YuJa and be signed in automatically.


2 - Access the Manage Media Menu

  • Once you're logged in, click Manage Media – this will open your My Media page. Proceed to step 3A or 3B – both have the same result, so you can use whichever one you prefer.
    Once logged in to YuJa, click 'Manage Media' to open your 'My Media' page.


3 - Upload Media Files

The Drag & Drop option allows you to upload one (or a couple) videos quickly and easily. If you have many files, or if you need to select from a few different folders on your computer, you may wish to upload using the Add Media menu instead (see section B, below). The Add Media menu is a simple way to upload one or more files and customize captioning and publication options all in one step.

A - Drag & Drop Files to Window

  • On the My Media page: Drag and drop files from your computer's desktop or file browser to this window. The upload will begin automatically.
    Navigate to the file on your computer, and drag/drop it into the YuJa window. The upload will begin automatically


B - The Add Media Menu

  • On your My Media page, click Upload.
    On the 'My Media' page, click 'Upload' to select your file(s).
  • This will open the Add Media window, where you can:
    1- Select the desired file type (what you're going to upload - image, video, document, etc).
    2- After choosing the file type, click Browse to choose one or more files from your computer or local storage. Select the file, then click Open to add it to your upload list. You may select multiple files at once, or use the Browse menu again to select more files. Note: All files must be under 5 GB in size.
    On the 'My Media' page, click upload, select the file type, then click 'Browse' to locate the file on your computer.
  • Optional: You can also make selections about Publishing, Captioning and Tags directly from the Add Media window.
  • When you have selected all of the desired files (example: list circled below), click Start Upload to copy them to your folder in YuJa. Note: Larger files may require up to two hours processing time before they are available for use.
    After selecting all files, click 'Start Upload' to add the files to your YuJa folder.

4 - File Processing

  • When you click Start Upload, YuJa will display the following progress indicators:
    1- A pop-up window will show the file upload status.
    2- After the upload is complete, YuJa will prepare the file(s) for streaming – versions of the file are created to allow playback on different devices. The video thumbnail will be greyed out with a 'Processing' message to indicate that YuJa is currently ingesting the file. This usually takes just a few minutes, but may take up to a few hours for particularly large media files.
    A pop-up displays the file upload status, and the video thumbnail indicates whether the video is still being ingested (prepared to play on different devices).

Share a Video

YuJa's Share feature allows you to grant an individual (or a small group of users) access to your media files. This is different from simply sharing a video link, because you can specify the level of access you'd like to allow and the video will show up automatically in the other user's account. Full/Edit Access is great for collaborative projects; it grants the other user permission to change or add to your video using YuJa's built-in video editor. Read Access can be used to turn in an assignment or to share your video with a classmate who also uses YuJa. Note: users must have a YuJa account to access shared files. To share your media with other users:

  • Find the desired video on your My Media page.
  • Hover over its thumbnail and click Share.
  • Under 'SHARE WITH', enter the other user's name – they must have a YuJa account, and their name will be pulled up from the list of available users.
  • From the drop-down menu, select the level of permissions to grant that user:
    Full- Allow the user to access, make changes, and delete media.
    Edit- Allow the user to access and make changes to the media, but not delete it.
    Read- Allow the user to access and view the media only.
  • When you’ve completed your selection for the first user, click Share. Then you can add more users or click Save to complete the process.
    On your 'My Media' page, find the video, hover over it and select 'Share', then enter a user and select the level of access you'd like to grant. Click 'Share' – then you can add more users or click 'Save' to complete the process.
  • Now the selected user(s) can access your shared file from their own YuJa account. They will need to log in and navigate to the Shared With Me page – all videos that have been shared with them will be accessible here. Their interaction with the file depends on the level of access granted by the owner. With full access, they can use YuJa's tools to edit the video, but read access only allows them to watch the video.
    The other user can log in and click 'Shared With Me' to access the shared file.
  • The content owner can always go back into the Share menu and change the other user's access level (or remove all permissions).
