Suggestion: Videos!

Post by timelessbeing » Sat Oct 30, 2010 8:25 pm

I have videos I'd like to share here with others, as I'm sure others do. Lets take this forum to the year 2010 and enable the embedding of videos in our forum posts.

Here is a VIDEO on how to do it :)

I'll have to check out that vid when I get home. Whats the difference between embedding and linking to a vid like we usually do? I only ask because I don't know.

Embedding puts the video right on the forum post, so people won't need to leave the site to watch it.

The only difference is convenience. :)
