    Easy, click on the symbol that looks like film strip overlapping another film strip, it is on the right side of the button you use to upload a picture. Just copy your URL from, YouTube, vimeo, Facebook etc . Then just paste the url with that button.

    Hey,

    Videos's can't be directly uploaded to the site (for both technical and storage size reasons), however if you upload the video to one of these upload sites then you can just paste in the link to the video, and it will automatically appear: (Dailymotion; Facebook; Liveleak; Metacafe; Vimeo; YouTube;). I'd suggest YouTube for ease :)

    edit: Just saw @RobAmy's reply - beaten to it :D.

    Actually, you don't even need to click the media button, you can just paste the link to the video directly in the comment and once you post, it's a video.

    Some good news! It looks like the next version of the gallery software has a way to upload videos - it's not yet out, but it will only be a couple of months away at most I'd guess :).
