GitHub has announced that it’s now possible for users to upload videos across its platform. MP4 and MOV files can be uploaded in issues, pull requests, discussions, and more. The inclusion of this feature will open up new possibilities including clearer demonstrations of new features or bugs in software projects.
The firm previously released video uploads as a beta feature back in December but now it’s considered stable enough for everybody on the platform to use. Now that it’s available, all users can upload videos to help maintainers reproduce bugs, provide context on pull requests for reviewers, give a demonstration of new features currently in the prototype phase, and more.
Commenting on the ability to upload videos, Lauren Brose from GitHub said:
“We’re excited to see the unique ways you use video in your workflows across GitHub. We hope you will start to bring video into your day-to-day through services you already use, like Loom and Vimeo Record to share project context, provide code review feedback, and share launch updates through free screen and webcam recording.”
The ability to upload videos is also arriving with mobile support. Both the iOS and Android GitHub mobile apps are capable of uploading videos to the platform but you’ll need to update the apps to their latest versions.
