Not all educational tech platforms have video hosting because of server hosting and transfer bandwidth costs and complexity.
- For maximum efficiency, the Kajabi platform doesn’t host videos.
- Still, the Kajabi team has partnered with Wistia to host all the video content with no additional charges or hassle.
By outsourcing to Wistia, you also get its marketing strengths, giving you enhanced video hosting capabilities for your work.
How Does Kajabi Video Hosting Work?
Whether from Dropbox, a local hard drive, or Google Drive, Kajabi will encode all uploaded videos through Wistia for you.
Wistia, in turn, optimizes the video in various formats allowing your customers to access content on different devices with a wide range of internet speeds.
Kajabi has a streamlined upload system.
Going from the Products tab, you can select the video you’d like to upload, whether it be from your hard drive, your Dropbox, your Google Drive, or an MP4 Link.
For the best performance, upload your videos following these guides:
- Resolution: between 640px and 3840px-4K wide
- Bitrate: 5 000 – 10 000 kbps
- Aspect ratio: 16:9 (For example: 1080px x 1920px)
Kajabi Video Upload Limit
There are no video length limits, but the file size must be under 4 GB.
Kajabi Video Format
Kajabi supports many video formats, but MP4 is the most recommended one.
Uploading Videos to Your Kajabi Products
It is not difficult to upload videos from your Kajabi site. All you do is follow the steps for the video you want to upload from whichever device it is on. Kajabi then uses Wistia’s platform to convert files for best device viewing.
Uploading Videos from Computer Hard Drive
Go to your dashboard, and select the products tab. Next, choose the file you would like to upload.
Your options are My Computer, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Link. Next, select Computer Hard Drive, and select your file.
Uploading Videos from Dropbox
From the dashboard, choose the products tab. See Dropbox second on the drop-down list. Then select the title of the post you are adding a video to.
Then choose Video, which connects you to Dropbox. From there, select your video to upload and follow the instructions.
Uploading Videos from Google Drive
To upload a video from Google Drive, choose Google Drive from the list in the products tab.
After picking the post to add a video, you need to choose ‘Video Select’ in the post editor.
Then connect to Google Drive to add your video.
Uploading Videos from MP4 Link
Uploading a video using an MP4 link looks much like the other examples we have shown you.
You start by following the steps above to get to the Products tab.
At the bottom, you will see a link for a URL. Simply copy and paste your MP4 link to upload the video.
Hosting Videos on Your Kajabi Pages
Though Kajabi does video hosting through Wistia, you still get to control the look of your products.
Things like adding background color and a background image to your video would be under your control.
Hosting videos on your site could not be easier. Kajabi has organized the server space and the technical side to offer you the tools you need.
