It is not possible to directly upload videos to the wiki; however you can embed video files from another service like Youtube or Vimeo. If you want to embed a video (from YouTube for example), choose the piece of the video url code that specifies the video file (For example, the bolded part at the end of the url: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQK3D-zGG6s) and put it in this format:

What You Want to Do Example of Wiki Code to Use What You See
Embedding a video file: for example the YouTube video at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqD9sOIbmJY
{{#widget:YouTube|id=uqD9sOIbmJY|height=315|width=420}}
Embedding a Vimeo video: for example the Vimeo Video at
https://vimeo.com/112298043
{{#widget:Vimeo|id=112298043|height=315|width=420}}
