videos on stake websites

Postby dizzy » Tue Oct 15, 2013 8:09 pm

Can stakes put videos on their official websites that can then be watched by the members of the stakes? The video in question is a training video that shows members how to properly prune grapes at the Church-owned grape vineyard that is operated by eight stakes.

The only tool on LDS.org that would work for this is the Newsletter tool. You can indeed put a video there, but only with significant restrictions. First of all, no video file type is allowed as an attachment to a Newsletter article. But you can get around that by embedding a video in a PowerPoint (you can attach a PowerPoint presentation to a newsletter article). The other limitation is that attachments can be no larger than 5MB. That would require a fairly small (reasonably short and reasonably low resolution) video.

The other option is to host the video somewhere else, and then to simply put a link in a Newsletter article.

maybe the video could be hosted on the vineyard website or facebook page. That is if they have one. Our orchard has both.
