How do I post a video? And delete my thread?
« on: May 31, 2017, 04:24:14 AM »
I tried embedding a vid hosted at YT and can't figure out how to make it happen. Help please.


Also how do I delete my failed post?


Thanks.

Copy the link to the YouTube video then put the link in between the URL tag in your post. The BBCode reference has the syntax, use the one for a link.

I tried and it gives me a link to click. I want to embed the video itself into my post.

Or maybe not lol. In "Preview" it didn't embed. Thanks!

Ok so now when I try to view via the app, the app crashes. It asks me to send an error report, I do and my email is rejected.

Mine does that too. It's only some people that have trouble. You can get around this problem by clicking the options on top right of app while viewing desired thread. Then click web view then click video. It will work without crashing

Thank you, it worked.
That's a PITA.

It is, we all wish it were easier - but the commitment level required seems to keep the riff raff out ;)

To embed video, just paste the youtube url.
THe problem is, it doesn't work on some mobile devices within the app. Works fine for me on android. There are 3 upgrades I need to perform that could improve and resolve this situation.
