To provide our students with reliable and accessible audio and video on demand within our Desire 2 Learn courses, the audio and video files must be hosted and presented from a streaming media server. 3C Media Solutions provides California community colleges with streaming media services and video content management. The media uploaded to 3C Media resides with each users account in a private status and can only be viewed by viewers who have access to links or embeds of the media. You are the only user with access to your media. The information below will guide you in creating, managing, and sharing your media.

Hyperlinks have two components:
The link should always describe what the user will see when they click on it. It should never be "click here", "here", or the link itself. For example, these are appropriate ways to include a link:
Some examples of inappropriate ways to create links are:
Resolution is the height and width of the video in pixels. Most video is original stored at either 720x480 (standard definition) or 1920x1080 (high definition), but gets sampled down to smaller resolutions for streaming, usually 640x480 resolution or smaller. That's because as the number of pixels in the file increase, you have to allocate more data rate to maintain the same quality.
Closed captioned video is placing text on the video to provide a time synched text transcription of the video. Closed Captioning is available through our streaming media provider 3C Media Solutions.
Under federal and state law, we are required to provide all instructional material in a format that is accessible to people with disabilities regardless of whether we have received a request from an individual student.
The captioning process is real humans typing all dialogue and sounds for your entire video. The turn around time is undetermined. When the captioning has been completed the CC icon will show in the lower right corner of the player during playback of the video.
