How to upload a video on your desktop computer

Below is an example on how to upload 4×4 videos using your desktop computer.

Please ensure your computer does not go into sleep mode whilst uploading as this can cause the upload to fail.

Uploading via your computer will mainly be used by people who know exactly where the video was taken to ensure we keep the accuracy of the map. There are only two ways of uploading via your computer and that is either manually entering the Longitude and Latitude co-ordinates or manually putting the place mark into the correct position. This may be hard for a lot of people because of the unknown location whilst using the map or if you are unfamiliar on how to track your location manually by co-ordinates.

1) Go to the home page of You4wd.com and click on Upload as shown below.
