How To Add a Video 

Videos are not directly hosted or uploaded to the CMS. Instead, host your Video on an external provider such as YouTube or Vimeo. When your video is accessible on YouTube you can embed it on a page within your website. Videos are considered Media Items on the platform. You may add a video directly to a page via the WYSIWYG (most common) or you may add it to the media library to access later.
