Okay, this time for real. rolleyes.gif But now it's EASIER!

To embed a YouTube video in your post, use this code:

CODE
[youtube]R2vaKOn9hl4[/youtube]


!!! Only use the last part of the URL. htp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2vaKOn9hl4
Get the gobble-de-gook code from a video here:

Okay, now lets try flickr....

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="266" data="http://www.flickr.com/apps/video/stewart.swf?v=71377" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"> <param name="flashvars" value="intl_lang=en-us&photo_secret=731eaff2af&photo_id=2521832117"></param> <param name="movie" value="http://www.flickr.com/apps/video/stewart.swf?v=71377"></param> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.flickr.com/apps/video/stewart.swf?v=71377" bgcolor="#000000" allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="intl_lang=en-us&photo_secret=731eaff2af&photo_id=2521832117" height="266" width="400"></embed></object>

That clearly does not work. Can we embed videos from our Flickr accounts?

I've got to try because I've never embedded a video before.



Ha! Problem is, I won't remember this next time I'd like to embed a video. Thanks anyway Mark!
EdwardBlume
Neat trick. So now I have to ask about all the videos...

Even an idiot can do it.

OT/ Heres my 86 year old Dad pitching his golf prints..

Airs 1600 times a week over 18 networks to 100,000 cable subscribers for two months now, not 1 call, or order from it.
Just more bills to pay........


McMark
Sorry Zach. No Flickr video. YouTube has a fairly simple way to customize which video you're embedding. Flickr is a little more complex and would be more complicated to do and remember.

So you're stuck with YouTube.

Very nice driving! Goes to show you what a good horsepower to weight ratio, resultant later braking and good driving will get you! Details on the car setup/driver/finish?

Driver is Keith Peare. He's running a 2.8L. Thats all I know. Found his stuff bombing around youtube. His car is insane.

Can this be moved to the FAQ so it can be found easily?

My try; video was taken in Huntington Beach, CA; never seen this 914 around though.

Jim, I see your video just fine.

Two questions:

1. When I open my video from my laptop, I get an error message; then the Youtube window opens and plays the video. Other videos give same error message, but will play only in the Youtube window

2. From my Ipad, I get a blank box where the video should be. Others, except one, appear normal and play fine. What's up ?

Firewall? I have the same at work because the company firewall blocks all youtube content ...

Jim, I get the same thing with the Ipad. If the video was loaded with flash, or some other microsoft-apple battle, they just won't play it. I would have bought a droid tablet before this Ipad any day, but a gift is a gift.

Can you see it on an Ipad ? Can I adjust the firewall setting ? I have Norton

unsure.gif Uh, Flash is Adobe, not Microsoft. And Flash is CRAP.

Jim, I wouldn't expect it to work correctly on an iPad due to there being no Flash on iPad. Flash is the software that makes the video work.

From the Ipad I can see all the videos on this thread except the following posts:
3, 33, 35, 36

All the other posts with videos play fine; and they play within the window.
McMark
I'd bet that it has something to do with how YouTube encodes those particular files. The owner of the files can set a few option at upload time. If the wrong options are chosen, perhaps they are not 'iPad compatible'.

Didn't mean to imply flash was microsoft, I meant flash or some other microsoft/apple battle biggrin.gif

If you use the youtube app to watch video, it will only display what is compatible. If you go directly to youtube, about 30-40% of the videos won't play. I've even had them not play on yahoo, google, and some news sites.

Since I have the experts attention, I have a question. Can I upload a video taken on my cannon digital camera to Youtube ? I have an account, but never tried uploading anything
underthetire
Sure, and if you have windows, Movie Maker is fun to play with. Load it in there, you can edit and add soundtracks, titles, whatever, and it's free and already there ! I'm no expert at all.

Thanks for the heads up, I have Movie Maker. Looks like it's user friendly.

The ones that won't play on my Ipad have "&feature=player_embedded" at the end of the code we use. Works ok on 914World though.
