WeVideo: Managing Media

WeVideo, 2021. Be aware that other versions of WeVideo may vary in appearance and functionality.


Importing Media

Before editing can begin, media needs to be imported into WeVideo. Media imported into an Edit will be available across your WeVideo account, including other Edits and Projects.

To import media from your computer: 
  1. Navigate to the My Media tab to the top-left.
  2. Click the “Import” button to the top-left. A new window will appear.
  3. Click the “Browse to select” button.
  4. Locate the desired media files and click “Open.” The files will appear in the Browser.
    • To select multiple files, use the Shift or Command(Mac)/Control(Windows) keys.
To upload media from your phone, use the WeVideo mobile app. Files uploaded to your WeVideo account through the app will be automatically available in the Browser.

Using Stock Media

WeVideo also has a large library of stock media that can be used, including video, photo, and audio clips. Stock media is available in the tab marked with a star. Enter terms into the search field to look for media about certain topics. The filters to the right can be used to narrow the results to specific media types. 

Adding Media to the Timeline

Video projects are constructed in the Timeline.  The Timeline is organized into tracks for video and audio. By default, two video tracks and one audio track are available. Video clips can’t be added to audio tracks and vice versa. Add media to the Timeline to begin editing.



To preview media, select the clip and play it in the Preview Window.

To add media to the Timeline, click-and-drag a clip from the Browser into the Timeline. Place it in the appropriate track at the desired location.

To add more tracks in the Timeline, click the plus button to the top-left of the Timeline and select “Video” or “Audio.”
