How do I upload videos to my own Video Gallery?

Uploading videos to your GoG profile is very easy, but it is a two step preocess. First, you must have an account setup on www.YouTube.com. Second, you must upload the video to that YouTube.com account. Lastly, you must copy the URL of the video. Make sure you do not try and use the Embed Code as this will not work properly on your GoG profile.

Once you have the URL copied, open your video gallery on www.GatheringofGamers.com. Upload a new video by giving the video a title and pasting the URL line into the form. It should instantly show up in your gallery and will be available to show as your own, to the gaming community.

We will continuously work to add other video website to our list of approved websites to upload and pull video from. Let us know if thereís a specific site youíd like to see us use in the future.
