Upload the video to Youtube and then embed it into the page you want. Youtube will give you the embed code and the editor has a video button. Click Embed and paste the code in.

Everything is working fine then. It appears like an image in the gallery but if you preview the Instructable it will show up as a video.

That's normal. If you check the full preview it will show as a video.

Ok, apparently that bug is effecting everyone. The work around is to go to your Drafts pages and instead of clicking Edit just click the title, it will launch a preview.

Also, if thats the only issue just make sure you get it published and entered before the deadline because you'll have a little time before judging starts to get it fixed.
