    Posting a video?
    Hmmm...it's always something. Can't upload a file with a .mov extension. Any suggestions?

    You can't upload movies to the site. Only picture and document files.
    You need a 3:rd party service to be able to show a movie clip, e.g. YouTube.
    Once you have it uploaded to YouTube (or any other service), you can embed that video in your posts here.

    Like this:



    Or just post a link, if that is a better choice.

    Let's try this:

    Hmmm... the embed didn't work; it just embedded a static image.

    How about this:

    Interesting. I was thinking about the video issue recently because we got a bit of good vid of the rattlesnake at Ingalls Creek that I wrote about in the Action Gallery. Not sure that I want to do any third-party posting, though.....

    Also, B'packer56's vid brings up the age-old question of spoken stove nomenclature. He says Svea 1-2-3. I have always said Svea one-twenty-three.

    I think we may have had this discussion before...Pree-mus or Prymus, and others.....8]

    The old idea of 3rd party was a no-no. Dead links seemed to be the end result.
    What has changed?

    I do say one twenty three, but for no reason whatsoever.

    You've done it now Ed. never mind politics or religion, if you want to start a fight on CCS ask how to pronounce Trangia. [-(;)

    I use Youtube to host my very poor videos just because that's all I know.



    All I do is right click on the Youtube video and click on copy video url, then paste into my post here.

    Nothing has changed.
    We still don't really like 3:rd party use for images and documents.
    For movies we still, just as before, only allow 3:rd party service.
    The reason for this is of course because movies take way much more space, and even if the present servers are huge, it's better to reserve that space for the main thing, i.e. reference gallery pics and litterature.

    How about the way to pronounce the noun "herb"? It still cracks me up. :lol:

    Cheers
