How to add a video to the Videos section

Adding a video to the Videos  is very straight-forward.  It is easiest done by opening two browser tabs or windows, but can be done from one.

1.  First, find the video (in this example, from YouTube) and copy the URL address for the video.  For YouTube, be sure to wait until any ad plays -- we don't want the ads here - then right click on the video screen.  Then select, Copy video URL

2.  Then, in the Videos section here, click the Add Video button.


3.  Then select the appropriate category for the video.  Click the down arrow (as shown below) and then select the best category.


4.  This will bring up a form to describe and submit the video. Paste the YouTube video URL that you copied in Step 1 into the Media URL field as shown.  Then either copy/paste or type in the title of the video from YouTube in the Name field.  Then scroll down as needed....



5.  Then enter a Description of the video.  Again, this is easiest done by copying and pasting from YouTube.  Finally, click the Submit button. 


6.  The system should take you to the screen where you can view the video to ensure the link is correct and plays OK...  If there is a problem, or should you need to make changes, I think you can click on the Manage button on the bottom left below the video. You may not see the same options, but you should see options to Edit or Delete.your entry.
