<div class="form-group">
{!! Form::label('video_name', 'Video Name : ') !!}
{!! Form::text('name',null, ['class' => 'form-control']) !!}

<div class="form-group">
{!! Form::label('video_path', 'Select Video : ') !!}
{!! Form::file('path', ['class' => 'form-control'])!!}

<div class="form-group">
{!! Form::submit('Upload Video') !!}

{!! Form::close() !!}

//Controller Code

public function store(Request $request){

$data = $request->all();
if ( $request->hasFile( 'path' ) ) {
$file = $request->file( 'path' );
$name = $file->getClientOriginalName();
$data[ 'path' ] = $name;
$destination = '/public/videos';
$request->file( 'path' )->move( base_path() . $destination, $name );
