ShareStream is a media platform for uploading, transcoding, editing, managing and delivering video and audio content in a secure environment integrated within Canvas courses. Some instructors may require the ShareStream NEXT Uploader tool to submit media assignments. As a best practice, media file uploads should be in MP4 file format with a file size that does not exceed 2GB.
