How to update a fork in Github

This set of instructions shows not only how to update the fork but also how to push it back to the origin so it will be updated in Github.

  1. Clone from origin: $ git clone https://github.com/MyName/processing-glvideo.git
  2. Check the remote branches with  $ git remote -v
  3. Type the following to get the upstream $ git remote add upstream https://github.com/gohai/processing-glvideo.git
