How do I upload a recorded service to Tukios?

Uploading a recorded funeral service is very similar to creating a regular tribute video with only a slight variation.

You can create a Tukios video to host a recorded service and can post it to the online obituary of the deceased. You can use the link on your obituary site, or you can come directly to Tukios to start it. This process works very similarly to the Tukios Video creator for your regular tribute videos, but with a small twist.

1. Click the Create Video Button

This can be done from your website or directly through Tukios (though your website interface might look a little different).

2 - Enter the Deceased Name

You have the option to edit the Introductory Text to "Recorded Service of" or "Funeral Services for" if you would like. You can learn more about editing introductory text here

3- Select Theme

From the themes page, you can choose any theme you would like. Optionally, you can have No Theme by following this guide here related to removing the Intro/Outro scenes. 


4- Upload Cover Photo

You will need to upload a cover photo, even if you decide not to have an intro/outro, as that is required in the system. This is necessary for the online hosting of the video as well as for any printed material.  

5- Upload the Recorded Service

Depending on how big the file is, it may take a while to load into the system. Please be patient as it processes the video files and knows that we are working very hard to get it up and running. The files will have a progress bar that you can follow. If the family recorded their service, you could use the Family Upload Link to help get that video online. If any of the files fail to upload, our Support staff can help to get the files to work, so please contact us if you need help.

6- Finalize the Video

From here, you can go straight to finalizing the video, and our site will begin to process and ship out the file for you. Once it is completed, you can use the links in the "Share or Embed" tab to embed the video on your website or send the Link to Video to the family. The video will be hosted indefinitely and will be available for public viewing. 

If you need help with larger files, failed files, or embedding on your site, do not hesitate to contact us as we will be available to aid in any way possible. Many of our partner sites allow more than one video to be posted to an obituary, which means that the family can enjoy the Tribute Video and the Recorded Service from your website.
