You have to upload them to something like Google Drive or YouTube and then paste the link here, there’s no way to directly upload videos.

I have google dive, I’ll try it. But it is not from youtube tho

Note: It is better to use YouTube than Google Drive. If you use Drive you have the potential problem of Google restricting access to the file if it is downloaded too many times.

If you have a Google account you pretty much have a YT account.

    Upload button >> Drive/More then Drive >> Enter details

  2. Go into drive and click view on the video
