Video clips cannot be posted directly in a message, they can only be linked to via the URL tag (the button with the globe on it).

From the topic:

The only supported image types for the IMG tags are JPG, GIF, & BMP. If somebody wishes to link to videos, they should use the URL tag, but this will not allow for streaming media links right in the message. To be quite honest, with the number of video types, codecs, etc -- it's better that we do not support it in the 'live view' or 'preview' fashions directly inline with the messages.

So, any video that you wish to share must be on the web, and be able to be linked to. Hope this helps.

You must place your videos on a web server, usually your own web space, as opposed to picture space. Some isp's give you free web/file space, some don't. Otherwise you must buy such space from a service provider. Then you need to be proficiant in compressing your videos to keep the file size low. What kind of file is it?
