General information about UniTube

There is no charge for using UniTube.

UniTube has a file size limit of 1GB for uploads.

See UniTube's Copyright page to find out more about your copyright obligations and responsibilities when using UniTube.

Only University of Otago staff and external users can add media to UniTube, and guest accounts are not available. Your ability to view media from unitube.otago.ac.nz will depend on the access settings that have been specified for the media in question (either public or hidden).
