Replace Video

In VIUTube, there is an option to replace a video that you had previously uploaded to VIUTube with a new video file. This feature can be helpful if you have a video uploaded to your VIUTube account but you wish to re-record and update the contents in this video.

By replacing the media file of the video you have already uploaded to your VIUTube account, this will save you the step of having to re-add your newly updated video to your VIULearn course or website. Furthermore, if anyone has access to the old VIUTube link, they will still be able to use that link in order to access the updated version of the video, as the link will remain the same.
