Youtube and Vimeo - how to embed
« on: October 28, 2014, 07:55:35 AM »
To embed a YouTube video - click the Youtube button, then paste the address from the youtube video (copy it right out of the address bar in your browser) in between the bracketed youtubes.

THEN (IMPORTANT!!!), delete the "s" from the https:// part of the address.


So Change this:
['youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AM2rqvQeTY&feature=youtu.be['/youtube]

to this:

['youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AM2rqvQeTY&feature=youtu.be['/youtube]

(I added the appostrophe in the bracketed youtube so it didn't think I was posting a video)

I also added a Vimeo mod to the board.  It works the same way (paste the address between the Vimeo brackets), but for Vimeo you DON"T need to delete the "s" from the address.

Maybe someone can tell me how to get decent resolution out of my YouTube uploads.   They all look like crap, low res and pixelated.

I have that same problem. A friend of mine's recent video looked really good, he said he used an app on his iPhone to upload. Can't see myself loading a video to my phone, then to youtube,....but for sure, you tube really sucks the quality out of my videos. Did you see a difference with vimeo?

Yes, I think Vimeo looks better.

Here are direct links to the two videos I just posted.   Same camera, same settings, same everything.

Hello Hank
 Good video!  8) I have been to akley many times. It is a great place to ride. It is too bad it's 500 miles up there for me or I'd be there more often.   sprout
