[FAQ] How to post videos

Postby abuali » 04 Nov 2009, 06:51

So how can you post a video on Ask?

You must link to a video stored on a publicly accessible web server i.e. the video should already be available and viewable online.

You cannot post videos stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor videos stored behind authentication mechanisms, e.g. hotmail or yahoo mailboxes, password protected sites, etc.


YOUTUBE


To post a video from Youtube (youtube.com), use the 'youtube' tag. (Just click on the 'youtube' tab when posting/replying, and insert the number that appears at the end of the youtube link to the video)

Eg:

Code: Select all

[youtube]FpkQuvPmJ_c[/youtube]


should give you the video that is playing on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpkQuvPmJ_c
