    Default How do I post a video??

    How do I get a video from Flickr to a blog on here ? I've never tried it before, so I used the same method that I use for photos, but that didn't work.
    Also, the video camera I have records each clip twice in a high and a low resolution. I think the lower resolution is for posting on social media (not sure), so if I learn how to post a video, do I use the high or low version on here ??
    Be gentle with me (Mal), I'm not very bright .

    Gentle?Me?

    Not sure you can do it direct from Flickr, I've only managed it from YouTube or Vimeo. I just click on the Insert Video button and post the https link into that. In fact, looking at it, it says
    Supported videos include:
    Hulu YouTube (Long) YouTube (Short) Vimeo Dailymotion Metacafe Google facebook
    , Flickr not mentioned.


    Either resolution should work, the high obviously giving a better picture. As I understand it, its the limitations of the viewers connection and software/hardware that will affect if they can see a Hi-res clip.

    Just make sure you post the right video. The wrong one could scar us all for life

    I'd feel it was an achievement if I managed to post anything and at my age I don't think I'd be shooting any videos that would scar anybody .

    Well I was thinking any video that showed you scratching a swift, but then I remember who I was speaking about

    I have no idea what type of video you was thinking about.....

    No there's not. Is it because it's a private video rather than public, and if so, how do I make it public ?

    Are you fed up with me yet ??

    Surely you can just ask google. It is the all knowing one.

    But if you are still struggling later on I will log in and find out how to do it. I cant remember off the top of my head.
    I seem to remember it being a dropdown selection from the video information part of the video on youtube. But that's all I remember.

    Cheers Paul. I always forget to ask Google until I'm reminded by someone else.
    I think I've cracked it, but I've only been able to insert the link rather that the actual video as others do.

    I use the web address copied from the top of the browser page.

    e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9A-cMr0IO8Y

    Insert that into the video thingy at the top of your "quick reply"

    Post quick reply and that should that.

    When I do that and then insert it into the blog, it just adds the link rather than the actual video as you've managed to do. I also right clicked on the video and then clicked on Copy Video URL, and that only added the link as well.

    Then insert the Youtube link in the following format...

    Here we go:



    Copy the address from the top of your browser, in this case it is highlighted in pale blue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9A-cMr0IO8Y

    Select the film strip thingy at the top of this Quick Reply section.

    You will get a popup like this
    Screen Shot 2017-10-09 at 18.13.23

    paste the copied address, like this.

    Screen Shot 2017-10-09 at 18.13.49

    OK it

    Post it.
