Uploading Video Trouble? Answered

I've been trying to upload a video to my instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/EXTREME-Mountain-Biking-in-Your-Back-Yard/) but every time, it uploads completely then says http error and doesnt post the video. Any ideas on how to fix this?? Thanks!

You don't upload the video to the site directly. You need to upload it to a video hosting site such as Youtube. The under the video you will find a share button. Click on that and click on the Embed button and copy that link it gives you. In the instructable editor you will see a icon that looks like a green strip of film. Click on that and copy the embed code there. Now you have added a video to your instructable.

just remember to use the 'old embed code' as apparently the new one isn't supported by ibles yet.
