Adding Your Video


As an invited contributor it is very important that you use ONLY the areas outlined in these instructions. Using or trying to use functions other than those prescribed can result in a less sufficient result to your posting and to the functioning of the website.


MP4 and M4V files
The best format for posting a video on cardiolefrog (or any where on the internet) is MP4.  If your video is in MP4  and M4V formats you may upload it directly into a post by following the simple instructions below.  If your video is in another format please scroll to the bottom of the page for other instructions.

MP4 First,  Log In and from the top menu select New and then Post. Give your post a title. This is important because without a title your post will be invisible on some sections of the site.

After you have added your title Click the  ‘Add Media’ button. A box will open and you will have the choice to add media from the cardiolefrog library or to upload a new file. Select ‘Upload Files’

You can either drag and drop your movie/image file into the box or you can click the Select File button and upload from there.

Once you have chosen the file the upload will begin. You will see the progress on the right hand side of the box. When the file has finished uploading click the ‘Insert Into post’ button at the bottom right of the box.

One or two lines of code will appear in the large box. This is the content of your post. Hit the ‘Return’ button on your keyboard twice and now you may begin to add some text to your video.

Please Note
If the text you wish to add is long please use the “more” button after 2-3 lines. This will ensure that your post does not dominate the main posting page to the detriment of other posters. If you post without using the more button it will probably be edited or deleted by an administrator.


Once you have added your text choose which category you would like to add your video post to. The Category selection is on the right hand side of your screen. You may have to scroll down to see it.

You are now ready to share your video and your words with the wider world. Click the ‘Publish’ button on the left side of the screen. Wait whilst the page is processed and then you may click the View Post link at the top of the screen to see how it will look.


If you wish to further edit the page you can simply select the Edit Post option from the top menu.
