Posting videos

Hi I’ve tried to get answer to this before. I hope I’m not posting this in the wrong place.
I would like to know in detail how to post a video. I had a reply to my previous question but it might as well have been in Russian.
I use an iPad but don’t do complicated stuff. Thanks in advance

Hi @Skyflier you can’t upload a video directly anymore. The best way to do it is to upload the video to either YouTube or Vimeo and then post a link on here. If you post the link on a separate line by itself the site will embed the video for you too. Hope this makes sense

As @SirGunner (Steve) says:

Stuff in your post, blah blah blah then on a line all of its own

https://hostingcompany.com/my_video_hosted_at_youtube_or_vimeo.mp4

then the rest of your text

The next hurdle of course is how to upload a video to YouTube or Vimeo. You can get a free account with either, I would recommend both. I prefer Vimeo as easier to use and a nicer look when done but they have a 500Mb per week cap on uploads before they demand you start paying. Hence a YouTube account as well

This is the “line of its own” video posting in action - the URL goes on its own

and the result is shown in a nice video box

Vimeo and YouTube will guide you through the process of uploading and promoting your videos - there should be plenty of videos on each site to help instruct you!
