VoiceThread Docs / Web Application / Creating / Importing media from another website

Images and videos can be imported from other websites as long as you have the URL that points directly to that piece of media.  These URLs usually end in a file extension like .jpg or .mp4.

  1. Click on the “Add Media” button.
  2. Select “URL” from the menu.
  3. Enter your URL into the pop-up window.

When the media has fully imported, you’ll see the slides appear as thumbnails on the Create page.

YouTube links are accepted!  Keep in mind that some videos (for example, official music videos) have specific licensing and cannot be pulled into VoiceThread.

Note: If you enter the URL for a full website instead of a media file, VoiceThread will pull the largest media file from that site.  The full website will not be imported.
