sorry, could not find an answer via Google or forums.asp.net search...
i know that when we want to refer to an image or video in reply to O.P., we must use a link.
however, when we* are the author/creator of a video, i vaguely remember there's a way to submit it to the asp.net website. (i could be wrong and/or that option may have changed)
* we =. forums.asp.net members (i.e., not the "royal we")

I've seen members post a link to a youtube video, on some occasions. That might be one option...
I doubt that there's a video repository here at the forums, though I'm not sure at all. What I can say with certainty is that I haven't seen any video repository, or any way to upload any to this site. The only videos I'm aware of exist in some of the Microsoft

No, it is not possible to submit videos to the site.
You can submit a link to an article containing a video for consideration as an Article of the Day at http://www.asp.net/community/articles/submit. The linked page must contain some "meat" and ideally
would also contain a download of the code presented; in other words the page must be of value to the reader even if the video is not watched. An example of a video NOT reaching that bar would be our own
Using Page Inspector in ASP.NET MVC; this page is essentially just a video with little explanation and no code download. As a video, it's a great resource, but it's not an "article" in the true sense of the word.
Additionally you could submit a link to an article containing a video for consideration for the Community Spotlight on the home page. Jon Galloway describes the submission process here:
The ASP.NET Daily Community Spotlight - How posts get there, and how to make it your Visual Studio Start Page. Although that post is 3 years old and the website has gone through some redesigns, the process for the Community Spotlight remains the same.
