If you'd like to post a video here, the first thing you need to do is upload it to YouTube or Vimeo or something like that. Hopefully you already know how to do that . (And please link to https://magicmusicvisuals.com/ in your video's description! )

I hope to see some great videos! The very best ones will be featured on our main web site: https://magicmusicvisuals.com/uservideos. We do reserve the right to use your videos for promotional purposes, but we will always credit you.
Update: 18 March 2015
The forums are now secured with https (see viewtopic.php?f=6&t=363), so your video URLs will be automatically converted to https also. Most video sharing sites (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) support this natively, so you won't really have to worry about it. But any files not hosted on https-enabled servers will not work here.
