Hi Dhivya,

You can upload a video file as an attachment in Confluence. Could you tell us what problem you're having doing so? What is the format of the video file and the size?

Kind Regards,

Steps :


i created a page

navigated to multimedia macros wherein

The file which i wanted to upload is not listed in the drop down. 

Hi Dhivya,

Are you referring to this drop-down?

It will only display the files there that you have already added as attachments.

To upload an attachment:

In the editor you can:

  • Drag the file directly onto the page. 
  • Go to Insert > Files and images and upload a file.

When viewing a page you can:

  • Drag the file directly onto the page.
  • Go to  > Attachments and upload a file.

It's probably best for you to try to follow the first set of instructions since you're already in the editor.

Can you give that a try and if you have problems let me know the file type and size you're trying to upload?

Kind Regards,
