If you need to replace an existing video with a new version and don’t want to update any links you shared or change out any embed codes, we have you covered! You’ll even get to keep your analytics and engagement metric data, too.
When you replace a video, the file itself will update, but the URL, Embed Codes, and Analytics will be preserved. We will also create a new version of your Engagement data and continue to store the data from your past versions.
To replace a video:
Open the video you want to update, then click ‘Replace’ in the top right-hand corner
Select the file you would like to replace the older version with
The file will upload and then encode, and when it is done processing, it will replace your existing video file
All your existing embed codes and links will point to the new, updated video
Your engagement metrics will be preserved, as will your historical analytical data for that video, so you won’t face any data loss when replacing a video on the SproutVideo hosting platform
NOTE: The replaced video will be ready for playback once the new version has been uploaded, encoded, and deployed on our platform.
