1. Add content
2. Click the ‘Video’ button
3. Select a local video file from your hard-drive and click 'Upload’
4. Wait for video to upload
The video will begin uploading - a progress bar on the modal/dialog window will let you know its progress. Depending on the size of your video and connection speed, this may take a while.
5. Success! Well, almost…
The video you have uploaded will need to be transcoded on the server (ie processed into the correct formats to allow it to be viewed in a web browser) - the video has been uploaded from your machine, but the processing may take a while - until it’s ready on the server side, the video player renders this scary looking placeholder.
6. Success, for real this time
