Uploading a Video

Gareth Casey Updated by Gareth Casey

From the Video window, click the video thumbnail to open the video in the Edit and Upload Window.

To upload the whole video, simply click the button for the service that you want to upload. FlashBack can upload to Google Drive, YouTube and Dropbox.

To upload just a clip made from your video, resize the grey bar below the video preview window to select the section of the video that is used to make the clip and then click on the relevant upload button. See Making a Clip for more details.

  3. Sign into the Google account that you want to upload to
  4. Click the Allow button when asked to give Flashback Express access to see, edit, create, and delete the specific files uploaded using FlashBack.

Once Flashback Express is connected to your Google Drive, or if you previously connected them, the Upload to Google Drive Window will then appear. Your Google account name and avatar picture will be displayed in the top left corner.

(You can change which Google account Flashback Express is connected to by clicking the Signout button in the top right corner of the Upload to Google Window and then repeating the above process for the new account)

You can then enter the details for your video file:
