    Cash, as long as you've been here, you should know we have been able to post videos here for years.

    -copy the URL of the video
    -when you're ready to post, click the next to last icon on the the little task bar.
    -post the URL in the window
    -save it and you're there.

    I honestly didn't know that. All the videos I post here were through a link. I just posted a video above using the info you gave me. Thanks. I learned something today.

    I don't think most people here are aware of this as I don't see videos posted in that fashion.

    I want to add something to this.
    I used to post videos no problem, then it got so that I could only post a link to a video.

    When I wanted to post one - I'd hit the "Share" button and copy the short link, that's what I would put into the box that pops up when you click the video icon.
    That doesn't work for me - it just puts a link to the vid in the post:

    I've also tried using the embed code with no luck.

    What I tried (which works) after reading this exchange, was to just copy the url from the browser address bar and put that into the box:

    url.jpg

    So maybe I was being stupid, but after at least 3 or 4 years; I now know how to post a video again.

    Thanks!

    You have to copy the URL at the top of the video page.

    Maybe y'all should post a video showing how to post a video.

    I knew I wasn't the only one who didn't know to post videos here.

    I think the other way used to work.
    I used to do it all the time, then; either it quit working or I got stupid.

    That's not really a request for an assessment of which situation prevailed, but it sure presents you guys with an opportunity to offer one.
    But Cindy has deftly handled the problem as a result of your request, thankyouverymuch.

    You're welcome. A lot of things changed with the new version.
