Unitube Uploader

Unitube Uploader is available at https://lataamo.it.helsinki.fi/

Unitube is a recording service for all university students and employees, providing a platform for uploading, watching and saving recordings, publishing them in different environments and managing the publishing rights of your own recordings. You can watch the recordings in Unitube Viewer and upload new content to the service in Unitube Uploader. In addition, different campuses have Unitube studios and Unitube lecture rooms that can be booked separately, allowing you to use card-based authentication to record directly into Unitube. Further information about Unitube studios and Unitube lecture rooms can be found in the Unitube instructions.
