Another question: how can i allow users to upload videos? Do i need to make them authors? Is there a plugin that handles this better?
thank you very much.

Hello raizel,

Thank you for your question. Here is a link to our guide on creating users in wordpess. It explains how to create accounts yourself, or allow users to create their own accounts.

Also here is an article that covers the Top 5 user role plugins, they essentially give you more control over permissions and what users are able to access.

Here is Wordpress' summary of roles, taken from their official Roles and Capabilities page:
Super Admin – somebody with access to the site network administration features and all other features. See the Create a Network article.
Administrator – somebody who has access to all the administration features within a single site.
Editor – somebody who can publish and manage posts including the posts of other users.
Author – somebody who can publish and manage their own posts.
Contributor – somebody who can write and manage their own posts but cannot publish them.
Subscriber – somebody who can only manage their profile.

Also, here is a link to a similar question we answered regarding adding videos in Wordpress, and here is a link to Wordpress' official support page on Videos.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

-John-Paul
