Social Report's media library offers conveniently built in storage for all of your media content used in publications. Nicely organized by project it offers users ability to share and subsequently reuse their media such as images and videos.
We recognized, however, that our users may already use file storage tools such as OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox to keep their photos and videos.
We are now offering our users ability to simply connect their cloud storage platforms to their projects.
Sharing Large Videos
Since our system has a 10MB internal limit, connecting shared drives allow you to share large videos on your social profiles up to 200MB. All you need to do is save them in Google Drive, Dropbox or One Drive and access the videos from there!
