Insert Video

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to upload videos directly to Story Capture. The best way to insert a video into your post is to have your video already online, hosted either on your own server, or on a hosted site like YouTube, Vimeo, or Google.

Once you have done this, you can insert a video into your post by unfolding  Media in the Add Post or Create Blog entry form. Under Videos, enter the URL of your online video.

You can give your video a caption, which will appear in small italic text directly under the video in your post.
