As part of my father's memorial, we did a 28-minute digital slide show of his life, with music in the background written and performed by his children. Is there any feature on FamilySearch to save the video?
I am no expert with "Memories" ...
And, as far as I was originally aware, "Slideshows", could not be uploaded into 'FamilySearch'.
That said ...
I recently did some research ...
I went through, these "Knowledge Articles" in 'FamilySearch':
How do I upload memories to FamilySearch?
How do I upload audio files?
My audio file didn't upload
How do I delete an audio file on a photo?
How do I record a story about a photo or document?
Can I leave comments about the photos, stories, documents, and audio files in memories?
Why can’t I upload video to FamilySearch?
They did not seem to address the matter ...
Then, I did an INTERNET search ( ie. slideshow familysearch )...
Much better ...
They were in the, 'FamilySearch', "Blog"; and, "Wiki" ...

Creating Family Slideshows
I have not looked through any; but, I thought that they may help.
No Video uploads to FS at this time.
BUT currently there is nothing stopping you from including a story item - with a link that corresponds to a YOUTUBE video.
here is an example:
Thank you. I will read the articles that I think might apply.
Thank you. That is what I suspected. I have not become a member of Youtube yet, so I was hoping not to have to add another format/ap. My son has put some family history interviews on Youtube, so I will discuss this with him and maybe do it on Youtube and put the link on FamilySearch until they get that feature.
One other possibility is to just use the audio track from the interview. That audio would be compressible and could be put into a much smaller file.
Here is an example of an audio interview:
with the right compression you can squeeze like 1 hour of audio under the max size limit of 15MB.
