  1. Make sure your video is tiny (a couple megs).
  2. Upload to YouTube
  3. Wait….. Wait…. Wait… for it to process and appear on the site
  4. Copy the text for an embedded video from the page
  5. Paste it verbatim into your blog

Here is my first attempt. The controversial Quattromat in action.

So post some video people. (I encourage you).

Nice. Good use of uTube. Much better than LonelyGirl15.

...and not scripted by three guys pretending to be her ;)

My wife has had bad luck posting to youtube… vimeo.com has worked much better, and we’re not sure why?

LJTV here we come!

Giz – weve either just got the ball rolling (before all the G&G table excitement) or we’ve exhausted this at great length, and/or have pretty much planned out Martin’s (and hopefully a bunch of our) futures bringing woodworking to the masses.

of course it took me so long to go back and find this link, I see that I’ve hardly been keeping up at all!

Giz – I think you might be opening up a new door at LJ! I predict we will be seeing more video posting soon!

I hope so. I think it helps to see how people do things in person(sic).

I’ve enabled some html codes in the posts recently. The reason was easier and more straightforward embedding of pictures and videos from other sites. It will be described in the 2 new guides. Basically you just need to copy paste html sharing code provided on these sites when you upload your photo or video.

Great video test, Giz.. Just for your information, Photobucket has recently added video hosting and when you copy-paste their code the video will be playable directly in your post using their embeddable flash player – pretty cool.

The wonders of technology. Hard to keep up with all the changes going on lately. Nice to know we will see some of it here.
