The Jetpack VideoPress dashboard is a new page that allows you to upload and manage your videos in one place. The Jetpack VideoPress Dashboard is available via the Jetpack VideoPress plugin. You can get 1TB of storage and more by upgrading to a Jetpack VideoPress plan.
Note: You will still be able to see your videos through the Media Library. When clicking Edit Video Details through the Media Library you will be redirected to the Jetpack VideoPress Dashboard.
At the top of your dashboard you will always be able to see your storage meter. Our paid plan for VideoPress provides 1TB of storage while our free plan provides 1GB of storage and the ability to add one video.
Below the storage meter you will have the option to Add new video. You can add videos one at a time from your computer.
Your VideoPress Library
You’ll be able to quickly see how many videos you have uploaded while also having the ability to search for a specific video, apply filters and change your current view from grid to list.
With the VideoPress filters you’ll be able to find videos by who uploaded them, the privacy status, and rating.
Changing Library View
To see your videos in a list instead of a grid, click the view button. Here you’ll be able to quickly see privacy, duration, and upload date information. You can hover over each video to show video options like edit video details, update video thumbnail, privacy settings, and delete. These options are also available by hovering over your videos in grid view.
Below the grid or list view of your videos you’ll see a section called Local videos. You do have the ability to upload multiple videos through the Media Library through WordPress.com or your WP Admin – those videos will show here.
Jetpack VideoPress has an option to easily add Local Videos to VideoPress. If you’re used to uploading your videos through the Media Library, WP Admin → Media → Upload, you will still be able to. This method can be used if you plan on uploading a few videos at one time. Once the upload is complete, go to Jetpack → VideoPress and scroll down to see Local Videos in your library.
You will now have the ability to upload these local videos to VideoPress. When you click on Upload to VideoPress you’ll see your video start to process just above in your grid or list view in the dashboard.
Once the video is uploaded to VideoPress you’ll see the thumbnail of the video appear and the local video will be grayed out with a message letting you know that the video was already uploaded to VideoPress.
