    The Upload videos page opens.
  5. Locate the videos, select them, and click Open.
    You can select more than one video file.
    The Upload videos page opens.
    For each of the selected videos, you can:
  6. Under Store uploaded videos to, click Edit (Edit) to select the library where you want to store the video.
