You will see a dashed rectangle on the next page. Here you have the choice to either click the Select Files button to browser your computer or drag and drop the video onto the dashed rectangle.

Uploading a video is often slow because the file sizes are generally large.

Once your video is uploaded you will see it below the dashed rectangle upload area. If you click on the Edit link to the right of your freshly uploaded video a popup will present an area to add a title, a caption and a description. Do so if you like, but it’s not required.

Now you can click on the Library link under Media and see your video in the list. You can now include that video in your posts and pages by using the Add Media button in the post or page editor and selecting the video you want to insert.
