Of course you do not have to upload videos but you should at least upload one (trailer, awards...) to have something in the "My videos" and enjoy a better visibility in the community.

  • 2. Select the file to upload, give it a title, a text description (centered)
  • 3. Click the submit button at bottom of page, do not close until the video is saved appears.
  • 4. Click share this to publish to twitter or facebook


Include a video that has already been posted on the web.

You can publish as many videos as you like from an account on different platforms like youtube, vimeo, dailymotion...

They will need to be published in just a few clicks and coy paste  as a "text blog"

1.      COPY code

Locate your video and grab the embed code

- Vimeo
Check on the vimeo video the </> link on the right of the video window, once opened select the "old embed code" : paste the embed code which starts with "<object width="400" height="225"> ..., (again NOT the new flash one that begins with <iframe ...
