Ralph,

Sorry about that, but until I know someones real name, I usually use like I have done in my post, a shortened version of your 'stage' name.

In Your case D - Divided, H - He ad. We do get some rather long and wierd stage names, and typing them out in full can get a bit frustrating at times.
I always like to use first names, more personal and genuine, unlike an anonymous nom de plume, which seems like you are always talking to a stranger.

John

Creating a YouTube account is probably the quickest/easiest.

YouTube is the best video hosting service.

Rake,
YT is band at my job. All the YT posts I can't see at work I have to wait till I get home to view. So if I want to show the guys at work my stuff I have to go with PB or drag the stuff in. Starting a fire in the office is a no no but thanks. I think I have the PB thing Beat. You should see a vid of my engine in a little while!!!

Copy everything after the = sign from the You Tube URL.
Position the cursor at the beginning of a blank line where you want the link to appear in your message.
Click the You Tube button (second from the left) and the the linking code will appear in your message with the cursor positioned between the entrance and exit code for the link.
Paste in what you copied from the You Tube URL in the first step.

Help!!
I'm trying to walk through how to post a video and have reached an impasse. (I think.)

I can't seem to get the "Preview" function to work. After I have pasted the URL from YT into the "Start New Topic" screen (I've tried both ways, just the bare "http" bit and enclosing it between the code from the YT button.)

Anyway, when I try to preview what I've done, it just sits there with "fetching preview..." in the Preview Post line.

What am I missing?? (I really didn't want to actually post the test clip as it is meaningless. I must have something tutn off?)

Dean

Interesting, I just tried to preview this post and am getting the same "fetching" message...............

Dean,

Currently there's a problem with the preview function. The guys are working on it. You can still post, but without a preview.

Dennis,
Thanks!! I was hoping it wasn't me.
I guess I need to make a usable video and just go for it.

It seems that when I am replying to a post the following will work when I "Preview Post" .

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxysfTM95t4
Example with a video will display correctly:


But when I start a "New Thread" and "Preview Post" it will just display the link and not the embedded video like above.

Am I doing something wrong or will it post correctly if I "Submit Post"

Gary
