Hello Mandy. Welcome to the forums.

I'm not too sure one can upload a video directly to the site, (I'm sure Ghostinthemachine, the local administrator would be able to help you out with that if you can) however there are a number of great third party websites you can upload videos to. Most of which would require an account, but hey. It's free. (I would try uploading a video myself here but there is no sandbox forum)

The easiest I find is to upload the video straight to google drive, then ask google drive for a shareable link. Anyone with that link will then be able to view the video.

You can do similar things with other cloud storage such as one drive and dropbox.

The other alternative is to upload the video directly to youtube, or a similar site, and set the privacy of the video to be unlisted. Then you can copy the url link to the video and put it here and we can watch it.

I hope this helped. Again, welcome to the forums.

Hi, Mandy and welcome to Everything Ghost. I'm sure our Admin can recommend a easy way to get that video on here.

Hi Mandy,

Welcome to the forum, lovely to have you here :)

I would upload it to Youtube, that's what I usually do, and then share the link in here on the forum.

Look forward to seeing it.
