Media Library Overview

The Media Library is where all files related to your ministry content are stored (i.e. sermons, events, etc.). Amplify Websites supports a variety of media including mp3, image files (jpg/ png), pdf, and a multitude of video formats.

Adding a Media Item

  1. From the Amplify Website dashboard, navigate to Media > Media.
  2. Click Add New Media.
  3. If your file is on your computer: click Browse for a File to select the file.
    If your file is hosted externally: use the External Link field.
    If your item is a media embed code: use the Embed code field.
  4. Click Save. The file will be added to the upload queue and available for use in a few moments.

Note: If you're experiencing any problems uploading items, you may try the Bulk Uploader link.

Adding Media in Bulk

  1. Go to Media > Bulk.
  2. Drag and drop your files from your computer into the window (directly into your web browser). The files will be added to the holding queue.
  3. Rename the files in the list if you prefer.
  4. Click Upload Now to begin transferring all items in the list.

Note: File upload limit is 1.0 GB (1024 MB) per file. A file will time out if uploading lasts for more than two hours. In Internet Explorer, multiple file selections are only possible in IE 10+.  

Notes on Media Files

  • Give your media items helpful names, especially if you upload various versions of the same item.
  • Media names must be unique (not including the file extension); i.e.: the files "file.pdf" and "file.mp3" cannot exist together.
  • Underscores "_" in the item's Name will be removed in the resulting filename.
  • If you will be overwriting an existing media item, the URL of the file will change. This is to help avoid browser caching and make sure your site visitors are receiving the most current version of the media. After overwriting an item, your page content will be updated with the new location of the file.
