How to upload a video to the learningBOX itself
- The playback time of the video can be recorded accurately.
- You can check if you watched it without skipping to the end.
- You can protect your videos based on your learningBOX account.
- It's easy to operate because you don't need to use multiple services.
- There are no ads and you can focus on learning.
- You can change the playback speed.
How to upload a video to an external service
- You can deliver high quality videos even with the starter plan.
- Depending on the external service, you may not be able to concentrate on learning due to the delivery of advertisements.
- Usage fees for external services may be incurred separately.
- You will have to double manage your external services and learningBOX accounts.
- Anyone who knows the URL of the external service may be able to watch the video.
If you want to use videos that have already been published on external services as teaching materials, it is convenient to embed videos that have already been published on external services as they are, but if you want to use learningBOX to distribute new videos, we recommend uploading videos to learningBOX itself. If you want to use learningBOX to deliver new videos, we recommend you to upload them to learningBOX itself. In that case, we hope you will consider using our Standard Plan.
Security and delivery stability
Video delivery from learningBOX is available through Amazon Web Services'Cloud FrontThe service is delivered from more than 100 edge locations around the world, including the Tokyo region. In addition, a one-time URL with an expiration date is generated for each user at the time of delivery.

With an eye on the 5G era, we will create a system that automatically selects from multiple delivery bit rates.

Currently, we use H264, but we will continue to support codecs such as H265, VP9, and AV1.
- Implementation of search function in video
Automatic transcription of the audio in the video is available for search.
- Support for subtitles
Subtitle file registration and subtitle editing in learningBOX are realized.
