      Note: The above mentioned upload times are theoretical and are to be used as a guide only. Other factors can influence the upload speeds.

      Recommendation: We recommend that both staff and students should upload videos to Kaltura while they are on Campus and connected to either eduroam or using a UQ computer. This will reduce the time it takes to complete the video upload.
