Web Streaming and Multimedia Publishing Support

Information Technology Services (ITS) is committed to supporting both academic and administrative departments in the use of streaming video and audio technologies. ITS support of streaming media consists of file hosting, file compression, and direct assistance to faculty members seeking to incorporate streaming media into their pedagogy. There are three services to choose from:

Flash Video

Compressed, ready-to-stream media can be uploaded to the Flash server maintained by Information Technology Services. Each department or facility has its own folder designated by a three letter acronym.

To request access to the server, please call 6-TECH Technical Support at 336-256-TECH (8324). A service ticket will be created for your request and forwarded to a streaming media consultant.

Note: There are two ways to access your media - embedding it to play within the page and having it play in an external player. Please review our Accessibility Guidelines for linking to, or embedding Flash Video at UNCG.

iTunes U at UNCG

iTunes U at UNCG is a partnership between the University and Apple Computer, Inc. that provides storage space and a University presence for delivering media content such as podcasts in the Apple iTunes Store.
