Hi Safariman

I have never posted a video so you may need WS for this.

After the picture posting thumbnails there is a paper clip looking one that you can put the URL of the video in or the label of the video. The one next to it is a Flash, not sure if thats for videos or not and the one next to that is the reel of film and you can copy and paste your URL into that but I am not sure if thats downloaded from youtube or not but I presume if you save your video to somewhere on your pc you can just copy and paste your link in to there.
I would fiddle with all of them and see what happens, it wont hurt the site but you can always wait for the video master to come on and tell you exactly how it's done......i'm as much use on this as a chocolate tea pot Embarassed
Sorry safariman Very Happy

Safarman the easiest way is to upload your Video from your PC to You Tube or you can use another host site if you wish, but You Tube is the easiest.
Upload to You Tube.
When you've uploaded, and your video is ready to play, below the video screen you will see Share.
Click on Share, and among the options you will see Embeded.
Click on Embeded, a box will open with text in blue. Position your curser over the box, and right click, select the option copy.
Go to WAA to your Safari thread, post reply as usual, in the reply box, right click, and select Paste, then click preview, and fingers crossed if what I've put does'nt sound gobblygook What a Face Your video should appear. If you have'nt got an account on a host sight like You Tube, and your not sure what to do let me know. Sorry if I sound like I'm treating you as not knowing anything, I'm just trying to cover all eventualities. Any problems please let me know, and I will PM you, and try to arrange a time where we can both sort it out
WS

Thanks WS. I do not have a YouTube account but I do have a Flickr account which has a similar share function. I had to slightly modify the video as Flickr only allows a maximum of 90 seconds and my original was somewhat longer. So after posting the modified video on Flickr I have been able to also put onto WAA on a new safari thread.
Thanks again for your help it means there is another thing I am able to do!!

Your welcome anytime Safariman. You Tube allows you 15mins of Video time. its quite easy to get an account, if you need a longer upload time. If you want any help with that let me know.
