eStream Version 6 eStream Version 6

We have upgraded to a new version of eStream (v6) which brings with it improved performance and stability as well as a new user interface.

The way that videos are uploaded differs in the new version so this quick guide will let you know how you can achieve this after the upgrade.


To add a new video to eStream click on the new create button that appears at the top of the screen and select upload video.

This will take you to the upload screen. From here you can drag a video into your browser or navigate your computer for the necessary file.

Once you have selected your video you will taken to the media options page where you can add a title and description and also add a category. This works in the same way as it did in version 5.

Once you have added your options click on the confirm button to be taken to the upload screen.

Once you are happy with everything click on the start upload button and eStream will begin uploading your video and converting it ready for streaming.

To view your own media and to check on the progress of an conversions click on the icon in the top-right of the screen (displayed with your UEA username) and select MyHome from the drop down menu.

This will take you to a new look control panel where you can manage your media.


We have also created a screencast to guide you through the process that can be viewed here.


If you have any issues at all please drop into the Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning at the top of the ITCS Building (walkway level 0).
