hello everyone on this new site. I will start the testing process by including a link to my latest film. We can all see how this works.

Hey, on this board you can actually embed videos right in the post - you just have to grab the Embed code off YouTube:

I really like that!!! :-)

Oh way cool, another Castlegardenner opus!  The bloodletting begins!

thanks strider. 

Comment on the new look and feel ... love the embedded video but ... Looking at Paul's reply it appears that the video is embedded each time a reply is made.  Ten replys would create ten video copies. 

This isn't necessary and may ceate problems.  At the very least it takes up more space on the screen.

.. jbd

 

It doesn't appear in Martin's, Castlegardener's, or your reply...  so it must be because Paul used a quote, and it quoted the video link as well.

Here's the embed code for a YouTube video - a short one just for testing - to see if that's all I have to do:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/-0oBNq6JYw8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I guess not - I see the code in text, not the video.

Good ... I wondered .. did seem odd ... jbd

Ok, went to another thread to see what Strider said to do - and he said:

"Ahhh - ok, you have to go to Share under the video on YouTube, then select the Embed code and paste that in here, then it works. 

Also, you have to use the smallest available video size or it cuts off the right edge of the video. Doesn't matter much though, once it's started you can go fullscreen." 

That is what I did - clicked on Share at Youtube, then Embed, copied the code, and pasted it here.  And it was the smallest size, which was selected by default anyway.  This is just like Marc's Animateclay message board, I couldn't embed there either.  I'm using a Mac running Safari, probably the same as Strider.   Is it because I have something turned off in my preferences like cookies maybe?

I tried it with two different videos, neither one embedded.

Also - this time I clicked on Reply before typing, and it copied everything from the last post.  I deleted it.  Previously I just typed forst, then clicked Add Reply underneath, and it didn't copy.

 

My mistake - I shouldn't have said "paste it in here" -  it's not QUITE that simple. What you have to do is, after copying the Embed code from YT, come back here, and click on the little blue rectangle visible at the top of the Reply window (one of the many icons there) that has film sprocket holes along the edges. That opens the Video window. Then you paste your Embed code in there. 

The littler window-looking rectangle to the left of it is for posting images from the web. 

Ahh, thank you Sensei Strider!

 

Yep, that did it!

Sorry for hijacking your thread CastleGardener - still in testing mode at this site.

Yup I used the quote, didn't think about it duplicating the video, ah well...

Also, on the iPhone version you can only seem to reply with quotes, doesn't seem any option just to reply
