The process of uploading a video file that you have in your PC into the WordPress page is something like this:
With these few simple steps, uploading an audio or video file anywhere in a WordPress site is pretty easy.
The process of uploading a video file from YouTube is also simple. For that, you’ll have to paste the URL of the video into the content on a line of its own. Once it’s published, the YouTube player will show in its place. You must be sure that the URL is not linked.
You may want to upload the audio/video file into another server like Amazon S3, or a file hosting service. For that, the process will be different. You’ll have to provide the URL of the file in your content. Then WordPress will read its extension (e.g. .mp3) and then will automatically show the media player. You’ll only have to enter the URL to your unlinked media file on a line of its own.
The file types that are generally supported by the MediaElement.js player for the video or audio embedding include mp4/m4v, webm, ogv, wmv, mov/qt, mp3/m4a/m4b, flv, ogg/oga, wma and wav.
