Have you seen the posts that show a clip from the video being linked, but when you post a video it only shows the text of the link you're trying to share?

Follow these easy steps, and you too can have a fancy video player inside your post as well!

First thing you'll have to do, is make a thread. (This will also work for posts inside an existing thread...)

Then you'll want to title the thread so people know what it's going to be about.




Next, click on the icon for posting videos.



Then, go copy the link of the video you want to share.



Once you've done that, you can paste the link in the space for pasting video links. And of course you'll click ok, it's what you wanted to do this whole time!



Now you can, add some text to describe why you're posting the video.



We're down to the last step. Submit your thread!



And now you have a video in your post!

Yes, but not for the reasons I would think you're alluding to. I didn't want to be on camera, I think there had been actual shoving involved. Not there was much need to worry about speaking to the audience, Josh hardly let me get a word in edgewise...

Kidding Josh, it was awesome working with you! I sure do appreciate what you do even more. I was feeling tongue tied, and Josh is just such a natural. It was very interesting to see the operation from that side of the camera, and then see the results.

It is a good episode and as much as I enjoy the hobby, in the big scheme of things Mac is right, it's just a plane.

In all things, but especially model aviation, I respect people most who reach out to share something they enjoy with others. Folks like Mac Hodges with his generosity and his hospitality, the inclusiveness Hodgehounds that call Mac's place home; because they make you feel like you're part of the gang, even after you just met, and most recently the crew of Flite Test for making the hobby fun and educational.
You should come to one of our events!

I know Mark. You guys aren't THAT much further than Mac's. I will kick myself into action one of these times. Maybe I'll be able to hit your New Years event, depending on work schedule.

I am always envious of the pictures and videos posted from your gatherings!

Fred, I think your how to is outdated. YouTube video URLs are https now and this breaks the default FT forum player. You have to delete the 's' from the URL in order for it to work as expected.
