How to post a web based video to the web forum - w/video

Unread post by Darryl Ponder » Tue Feb 12, 2013 2:21 pm

9/23/13 Note - I used to call our web forum "The Bellows". Since we already had an email reflector that uses that name, there was a bunch of confusion amongst members. I now call the Guild's web forum simply - "the web forum" -. This "how to" video still uses the older name. - Webmaster

Open up a new topic and you will see a new text box where you can type in your message.

Above the text box you will see a bunch of icons that each do something to the message, from making text bold, to adding an image from your gallery, to changing line spacing, to adding a web based video into the text box.

The add web video icon is what we are after. The icon looks like a strip of old 8mm film. When you hover your mouse pointer over the icon the description will appear that says "Insert Web Video".

To insert a web based video into your message click on the icon, it will open up an an area above the icons where you can insert the URL (web location) of your web based video. Select the video hosting site from the drop down list (Youtube is the default), paste the location into the "Enter a link for BBvideo" box and then click on " insert into message".

Your video will be displayed in your new message.

Here is a video overview of how to insert a web based video:
