    We are starting the process of building a number of tutorials for the forums. Once completed, we will be indexing all tutorials into a master list that will be made a "Sticky" for easy reference.

    Here is a 'How To' for embedding videos into your posts in the forums.

    Videos to be embedded first need to be uploaded to a supported video hosting site like YouTube. Here is a list of supported host (as of Jan, 2013):

    Hulu, YouTube (Long), YouTube (Short), Vimeo, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Google, Facebook


    Once your video is uploaded you will need to copy your video's specific URL (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1234567 ).

    Next you need to start your reply. You can use either the "Quick Reply" at the bottom of ant given thread, or you can click the "Go Advanced" button that will bring you to the Advanced Reply screen.

    At the top of your reply box, you will find an assortment of icon. You want to click on filmstrip icon, located here in the Quick Response box:

    [​IMG]

    It can be found here in the Advanced Reply box:

    [​IMG]

    Once you click on the icon, a window will open with a space for you to enter in your video's ULR (the one you copied from your host site like YouTube).

    [​IMG]

    Paste the URL and click the "OK" button. You will now see your video's URL in your Reply enclosed in the VIDEO brackets as shown below.

    [​IMG]

    Once you finish your reply, post it like you would any other post and your video should be embedded.

    Here's a trail cam video of a collared wolf as an example of an embedded video:

    Make sure your privacy settings for the video aren't set to "private" :poke:

    Can you not see it?

    Try it now. Not sure why it was locked but it was. Hopefully it works now.

    What code is used from photobucket for videos? I didn't see it listed. I think vimeo gives better quality but it takes much longer to upload your videos to it.

    Videos don't embed on mobile devices. If you're on a laptop or PC, it is.

    Photobuck is not supported at this time. I was never happy with the quality of photobucket videos myself, which is why I started a YouTube account. Also, my videos upload a ton faster from my phone than my laptop. Not sure why, but it's nice since most of my videos are from my phone anyways :tu:

    I do use Photobucket for my photos. I'll cover that in the photo tutorial soon.

    Figure Id test it out.. Here is a self filmed video of my Wisconsin bow hunt last fall where I connected with a 9pt. It would be greatly appreciated if you have the time to watch it and give me some feed back. I like to think I did a pretty good job, but it theres always room for improvement! Let me know what you guys think
