Greetings!
The video upload has been enabled for all members! All you need to do is use that new Upload Video button on the lower left next to the attach files button.
Then once it uploads, you'll need to click on the VIDEO button next to the small view of the video.

The maximum attachment/video size is 51200 KB.
And if you only see a control bar for the video, you probably are on Chrome. Look at it via Edge and it shows everything. Win10 and some image stuff works better with Edge.

The lower video does not show for me on Chrome, but when I go to Edge it shows perfectly.

Lets try a big one. Looks like it reduced the resolution to fit the limit. You will have to watch it on Youtube to get the 1080p.

I've double checked with our head tech and the forum does not process the videos, it just can upload them. What you can see or cannot see is dependent on the way the browser handles each video. I did get Firefox to see the lower video after clicking on it, then not seeing it but only hearing it. Next I went to a different thread. I decided to try it again and this time it showed the video and the audio.

I had the audio, but not the video on Firefox. I guess I should have clarified.
