How do I get my video file?

Gone are the days of the USB handover, CDs, never ending infrared and dodgy bluetooth that cut out for no real reason. We have moved into the age of ungodly sized video files being across the world in seconds.

Well, what is the best way to get video files? Welcome to this edition of the STM Blog, where we will be talking about how you can get the video file when your project is done. Without further ado, let’s get into it.  

So, you’re happy with your project. You want to access it and publish it, shout it from the rooftops across all of your organisation’s channels. But first of all, a useful tool getting to this point!


During the review process, during which we’ll likely go back and forth about small tweaks you want to make to the video and get to see it as it advances, we use Vimeo. It is a great platform and allows you to leave live feedback on the side with timestamps, so we can work with that.


What’s also great about this is you can actually download your video file from the Vimeo link. There’s a little download button in the bottom right hand corner of the video and you can download it to your computer in whatever size works for you. 


If we’re sending anything additional to the video file, such as photos or animation, we tend to use platforms such as Google Drive, which again, allows you to download directly from the link. You can access it whenever you need to, but if neither of these services work for you, then we can use a platform such as WeTransfer, which sends the link directly to your email and you can download the videos from there. Look how convenient we are! 

If none of these methods work for you, say your computer is blocked by the company firewall for example, speak to us and we will do everything we can to help you out. 

So, if you have any other queries about accessing your final project, then get in touch and we will be more than happy to assist you.

If you’ve got any other questions about all things video, animation or live streaming let us know! Contact us here, give us a call on 01902 595100 or in the name of nostalgia send us a USB stick in the post.
