Add videos and other media to your Library

When it comes to adding media files in Flixier you have a lot of flexibility. You can use files from your local device or import from cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive. You also have the option to use external libraries like Pexels, Unsplash or Pixabay and you can even record yourself using a webcam and a microphone.  

Let's see how all that is done!

Import from your device

Follow these steps to import media from your device:

  1. Make sure your Library is selected in the top right corner.
  2. Click the blue Import button.
  3. Click on My Device and now you can browse and select your media.
  4. Now click the Import All button.

TIP 1: Your files will start the upload process to our cloud service. Still, in most cases you will be able to start using your media right away. The only limitation is that you need to wait for the files to upload to save the project.

Import from YouTube or Sound-cloud

To import media from YouTube or Soundcloud you need to do 3 simple steps:

  1. Click on the blue Import button in the Library.
  2. A new input will appear where all you need to do is paste a video or sound link that you can copy from your browser address bar.
  3. Click the Import button and the clip will be added to your timeline.

Note: Due to YouTube policies clips will only be added to the Timeline and not on your Media Library.

Use Stock Images, Audio, Videos and GIFs directly from Flixier

To access stock footage like images, gifs and videos you need to click on the "Stock" button in the library (left side of the screen). From here you will be able to select between videos, images and gifs.

To search your desired stock subject, just search the stock keyword and multiple stock media files will be shown related to the keyword you have entered.

To access stock audio you need to click on the "Audio" button in the library (left side of the screen). At the top of the library panel you can search for your desired music or sound effect.

When you find the desired media just drag and drop it on the timeline to use it in your project.

The libraries we use for the stock media files are Pixabay, Pexeles, Unsplash and Icons8.

TIP: These files are saved into your project but not your library. If you delete one in the project you will have to search for it again.
