Uploading files direct from client without using our server

I have a service that creates websites for my users.  On this website is a button that allows these users to upload video files.

However, these video files are uploaded to MY server and then sent over (through my server) to the video hosting server.

What I want to figure out is how to bypass using my server as a pass through and have the user upload the file directly from their browser to the video hosting server.
