    How do I post videos?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Capslock, Apr 13, 2019.

    Perhaps someone can school me? Not sure how to post videos, links.

    Thanks in advance

    Got it, thanks. I discovered that the “share” icon under YouTube vids is where “copy” is.

    Thanks.

    I think you have to use [media=youtubethelink then /media and close bracket

    I can't do it all the way or else it will post with nonsense so I hope you know what I mean.

    If you know what you are looking at find a post here that has a video and click reply, then you will see in between the quotes how to do it. (you don't actually have to put in a reply)

    Well, yeah, but that might cause problems depending on where you're posting from.

    But when you're writing a post, there's all those hieroglyphics at the top for bold italic underline strikethrough and such.

    Towards the end of things (my desktop puts it in the second row) you'll see a little thing that looks like a couple of filmstrips. It's the third from the left here, after the smiley and the mountain with sun:

    If you use that function, it will give you the ability to embed video from Forum Approved Sites, saving you the hassle of accidentally sharing something from, umm, PetHub... or whatever. When you click that button, a new window pops up and you just need to paste the link in there.

    So I found one but I left out the beginning [ so it wouldn't post. Just add a [ in front of MEDIA

    most of the time if you just post the url into the thread the forum software will do it automatically - with youtube - it doesnt work with facebook videos and not always with vimeo

    You can write [plain][/plain] around something to prevent it from parsing: [media=youtube]0Fju9o8BVJ8[/media]
