How do users add Comments to a Media Gallery video?

By default, users can add a comment to any Media Galley Video.

Instructors can remove the commenting permission or close the discussion (not allow new comments). To remove commenting permissions from a Media Gallery video see: How do I remove commenting permissions from a Media Gallery video?

Note: Comments can only be added to a video that is displayed in the Canvas Media Gallery tool. My Media videos embedded in a Canvas text box cannot have comments added to them.
