    Default Help with Video Posts on U U

    Hi there, I am having a problem when I post a video on U U. When others post a video they get a nice large still photo from the video, but when I post one I just get a small link to click on with no photo. Anyone have an idea or a tip how to do this correctly or an idea on what I am doing wrong?
    Thank you in advance for your help on this.

    Sure James,

    After clicking on Reply To Thread you will see the tabs just above. Find the film strip and place the url in the box and click ok and then post. Very simple once you get the hang of it.

    Maybe I am missing something, but I still can get what I am after. I am talking about on the initial posting for a video (not a reply to thread) I get a still photo (thumbnail) from the video on You Tube instead of the URL. If you look at the video I posted a few days ago under Videos on the Forum of "Wonderful World" you will see what I mean. Not sure if after posting the video I can correct this but I hope I can get clued in so next time it will be better.
    Thank you!

    When you post a new thread, you can see a bunch of buttons below the box where you type in the title. Look for the button that looks like a couple of frames of a film strip. That's for inserting a video. Press it, then put the YouTube URL in that box, then press OK. Most times it works for me. If it doesn't work, then sorry, I don't know what the problem is.

    By the way, you can go back to your "Wonderful World" post and edit it. Just replace the link with that film strip thingie. The playable picture of the video should appear in its place.

    When you create a new thread, there are icons across the top above the white area, each icon is to insert an image, a video, etc. Just hover your mouse over the icon to see what it's for.
