After the file is selected the upload progress is shown at the top of this page. You will fill in the fields as needed. A good title is important as it will appear with the video when it’s embedded later. Adding tags and a good description make it easier to find your video. This all can be modified later as well.

For most situations the “Unlisted” permission works best for an individual’s media. The user controls the access by where they paste the embed code and who they share the link to this media page.
