The simplest and easiest way is to add a video to a third party hosting site and post a link to the forum.
YouTube fits the bill for longer videos but short clips can be added via Flickr- that’s also the site many use for still images as well.

Appreciate that the reply states 'the simplest and easiest way'. Can I just clarify that other than use a third party host, there is no direct way of uploading a short (34 second) video onto the site?

Hi
There is no means of uploading a video to the forum. They would take up far to much file size space on the forums servers.
Uploading the video to say YouTube and copying the link provided to that video once its been uploaded is permitted and works well. :D
