First, do a search for the video to make sure it hasn't already been added.
Then go to the Add Video page and paste the Video URL into the form and hit submit. We will draw as much info from the URL as possible.
More Part Urls
If the film is broken up into multiple parts, enter the first part's URL as the primary video, and then add the rest of the URL parts here. Parts must all be from the same video host.
Alternatively, if there are multiple good videos on the same subject, that would work better grouped together as a theme, rather than being posted separately, you can post related videos as parts.
For example, if you've found several videos covering a major protest event (think G20, G8, WTO), add the best video as the primary video, and then add more supporting video clips as additional parts.
Next, please clean up the title field to display the title only (removing the name of the site the film is from, for example, or other extraneous text), and double-check to make sure all the main words are capitalized.
If the video is a trailer you don't need to mention that. We'll add that text automatically when you submit.
Find an image to upload, if one isn't added automatically.
Choose the category for the film:
- Documentary: Feature films usually 30 minutes or greater in length.
- Trailer: a preview of a documentary
- Video: Any video that doesn't fit another category.
Enter the length in number of minutes (120).
Website Url (optional)
Enter the film's official website or related action campaign.
For the video description, one paragraph is ideal, but longer descriptions are okay. Most of the time you can simply paste the description provided with the video, but if no adequate description exists, please write your own summary of the film from a third-person, neutral point of view (think Wikipedia), and reserve your personal opinions for comments on social media after you have posted the video. One to three sentences is ideal.
Add one to three subject tags that best categorize the film.
Hit submit and you'll be good to go.
After you've submitted the video, it will go to our spam filter where we'll manually approve your submission. After that, you can share the video on social networks to help get the video in our "Trending" section.
You can also edit the video you submitted by hitting "EDIT" on the video's page.
