Here, we’re covering the how-tos for uploading long-form videos your subscribers will love and creating classes with those workouts.
Remember, long-form videos are longer than 45 seconds and include primarily videos shot in landscape mode for your subscribers to follow along. Think guided workouts like spin, yoga, and Pilates.
For more on the differences between long-form (class) and short-form (clip) videos, read this article.
Note: You have to upload a video to the video library, then create a class (more on that below) and choose videos to add to that workout from your video library.
Go to your video library
Tap on “Upload”
Select a video
Remember, long-form videos should be shot in landscape mode (horizontal videos!)
Enter a video title, then tap “Next”
Upload the video
It can take up to 30 minutes to upload a video, but you can leave the app during this time. To check on your upload status, pull down to refresh.
Tap on the “+” button and select the “Class” template
Tap on “Add Video”
Select a video from your library of uploads
Fill out the class description
Optional, but highly recommended: Upload an intro video!
Create an optimal environment with natural light and minimal noise
Film against solid backgrounds (we recommend using whtie and light colors)
Have a clear view of your workout space in the recording
Tighten in on the body as much as possible (at least 90% of the screen)
Film in landscape (horizontal videos!)
