This may be kind of basic, but how do you insert a video into a post? Thanks!

There used to be a video icon at the top of the message screen, now it seems to have disappeared for no reason I can think of. Let me try something...

OK, I just had to test it. It's easy, just copy the URL of the video as long as it's on YouTube, and other supported sites, then copy and paste the link into your message. It should appear automatically as it did above.

I don't know why the icon disappeared but it's not really needed anyway.

If there are more than the usual amount of videos posted, as in some previous threads, consider posting just the URL which you can access by clicking the link button at the top of the message box (looks like a link of chain), then pasting the URL into the box which appears.

That can help people browsing the site because a large number of videos per thread or per page can slow browsers down especially on mobile devices.

Hi GF,
Do you know if there is a way to post a video only on this site? Yes, I had thought that there used to be an option. If not, do you know which are the "supported sites" other than YT? I wanted to post a video last week, but did not want to utilize YT. Thanks much...KC

Sorry for the late reply, I've been off the grid for a few days - Happy you found a way to get the video posted! I checked into it and it is best/easiest to upload it to a host first, then post the link but if you found a way to do it, that's good! Most of the known video hosts are supported by the board format so it should be easy in the future.

Easy is a relative term, yes - But in this case, if there is a video on YouTube or Dailymotion or elsewhere, just click on the URL of the video, copy it, and paste it here in the message. It automatically embeds itself, and there is always the option of pasting it as a direct link by using the chain-link icon above the message box.
