Note: There is an upload limit of 2GB per file.  The dialog above provides recommendations for the best file size and format.

Next, title and describe your video. Your title should be relevant and easy to understand so that it easy to find later. Providing a description is also a good idea, especially if you have multiple videos concerning the same topic. Tagging your video is important for searching by keyword/topic.
