Course 3:   Uploads + Exchanges

As of March 13, 2023, Hudl Academy will be undergoing changes. While this site is under construction, please connect with our tutorials, classes, or YouTube channel for up-to-date information on all Hudl products and workflows.

Lesson 1:   Upload Your Video

  1. First things first — test your network’s connection. Your upload speed can only be as fast as the network it’s on. Run a connection test to make sure your WiFi will do the job. 

  2. Upload files from a camera. It’s a breeze — just drag and drop the files into your computer browser and watch the magic happen.

  3. Try an iPad. Use the Hudl app on an iPad to record and upload your video. Why? Because it’ll record and upload simul­ta­ne­ous­ly with a WiFi connection. Your video will be online that much faster. 

  1. Pro Tips

  2. Double-check your video format is supported. Nine times out of 10, it will be. Take a look at our supported file types if you’re ever unsure. 

  3. Add video details right away. Attach your video to a schedule entry, add custom labels, share it — this can all be done before it’s even uploaded. And staying busy will make the upload fly by. (Kinda like the watched pot never boils” thing.)

  4. Get video from your device’s camera roll. Accidentally record video in your device’s camera app? Don’t sweat it. Just transfer the video from your device. And be sure to record in the Hudl app next time. 

  5. Split large files before uploading. Have a file size bigger than 20 GB? Split that sucker up before uploading for a smoother experience.
