LUTube: University of Leeds UTube

LUTube is the new service at Leeds that will allow staff and students to share and watch online videos. You can log in and upload your content in most standard video formats and it will automatically be converted and optimised for viewing on the web.

  • Categorise content with tagging, description and copyright information
  • Comment and reply to other users discussing videos on LUTube
  • Create, develop and customise your own LUTube channel
  • Subscribe to other user's channels
  • Create and join custom groups (coming soon)
  • Choose to restrict content to logged in users only, faculty, school, module or selected
  • individuals or groups (coming soon).
