How to Upload Video from Your Computer to Your WordPress Blog

WordPress now makes it exceptionally easy to upload video into you blog post. This can be done with a video from the web or one that is stored on your compueter. To upload and post to your blog a video from your computer, click the Add Media icon on the Edit Post or Add New Post page. Then follow these steps:

  1. Click the Select Files button.

    An Open dialog box opens.

  2. Select the video file you want to upload and click Open (or double-click the file).

  3. You return to the file uploader window in WordPress, which shows a progress bar while your video uploads. When the upload is complete, a box containing several options drops down.

  4. Type a title for the file in the Title text box.

  5. Type a caption for the file in the Caption text box.

  6. Type a description of the file in the Description text box.

  7. Click the File URL button.

    It provides a direct link in your post to the video file itself.

  8. Click the Insert into Post button.

    WordPress doesn’t embed a video player in the post; it inserts only a link to the video.
