    YouTube Video

    I noticed the board only allows 1 video per post. I would hope this changes. There are a lot of instances where some use video to compare things. Having to construct another post immediately after might lose it's flare.

    What are some of your views on this?

    I agree with you, Gruno. Only 1 video per post will be cumbersome.

    I've noticed this two. In my thread about Galahad's two albums, I wanted to post two YT-vids.

    If there's need for a maximum (which would make sense), I'd make it 5 or maybe 3. That's reasonable.

    I've just been trying to post a vid (by adding the youtube url to that little box in the manage attachments window) but it was saying invalid file or something.

    What have I missed??

    You can embed them the PE v2.0 way, just use the word VIDEO instead of YT.

    If 'borrowing' from YouTube, do we still remove everything before the "=" sign? I just tried that using [ VIDEO ] and [/VIDEO ] and it still did not work.

    Well, the one you put in my stoner thread does not work. Nor does the one 3LockBox posted in this thread.

    All I see is a black screen with a red and white "play" button, but I cannot get it to play.

    Just thought I'd test this new way as well with an example inspired by a recent thread here on PE 3.0.

    None of those work for me. I am using IE here at work. Could that be the issue? Is this board more Safari/Firefox friendly?

    Yves, I'm using IE. I tried to post how I posted the video I posted yesterday but when I typed it all out all I got was gobledeegook. I'll try again.

    Go to youtube and pick the video you want. Start the video so you can see the URL in the browsing field (you know, http://www.youtube.com/blahblah). Copy and paste the whole URL in your post. On either end of the URL (no spaces) type [ video ] at the beginning, and then [ /video ] at the end. That's what I did and it worked.

    Just remember that there are no spaces between the brackets [] and the word VIDEO.

    Another thing I just thought of. If you're trying to post from work maybe Youtube is blocked. Like at work I can see/play Youtube videos that are embedded in threads but I can't browse http://www.youtube.com

    This can be changed.

    What would be a reasonable limit?

    Vic, not only can I not post any, I can't view the ones posted. I have no restrictions here on my work PC and this is where I spend 90% of my PE viewing time. I never had any such problems on the old board.
