Embedding video in a post

#1 Post by dhaverstick » Fri Jul 28, 2017 10:55 am

Is it possible to embed a video in a post on this site? If so, could you please tell us how to do it.

Thanks,

Darren

I don't believe we are set up for that, Darren. You would have to check with Larry. I believe it requires more bandwidth than we have.

Maybe a link to it but probably not a video, unless it was tiny.

Bandwidth shouldn't be a problem because the video is hosted by someone else. I guess I should have asked if there was any way to embed a video viewer into post. Lots of forums have the ability to have YouTube videos viewed directly from a person's post. It's just a matter of getting the html syntax correct.

Just curious,

Darren

You can with you tube by using share, then copy link.
