I tried to find instructions on how to post some video content and it appears there was a very informative video that The Woodwhisperer posted that is no longer there. I have two specific questions: What format is the best/ most efficient to post and is there a way to embed the video in a post or is it better to just post a link to Youtube?

Thanks in advance,

Ham

Sorry, I’m clueless!

If you discover the answer for yourself, could you relate the solution here?I need to know how to post video also.

Good luck on your pursuit of knowledge!

Upload the video to youtube. When you are viewing that video in youtube there will be a share button. Click on that..

Then click on Embed

Then copy and paste the code into your blog here on Lumberjocks.

Once you activate the blog (or project or forum, or whatever) your video will appear….

Hope that helps!

You can also right click on a Youtube video, pick “copy embed html”. Then just paste the code wherever you want it to go in a comment or reply. Hit the preview button to see what it will look like.

You can also save the codes in a separate file and pull them out when you need them.

Ham,
Saw your video. Sorry you had to lose a tree in order to learn how to post a video!

Thanks for asking this question. I now know how to post a video. I only need a topic/subject and a video camera!!!
