Hello All,

I'm looking for some information and assistance with posting videos here.
File format, Frame size, File size, Posting method etc.
Is there anything already published on the forum?
If not, can anyone here advise me?
Also, what is the difference between the two boards, UU Video Discussion
and Links and Videos?

Thanks in advance,

Vintage

You upload your video to youtube and then you use the advance editor on UU
that small film strip icon to provide the link to your youtube video.
You don't store the videos on UU you only provide links to youtube videos
So get yourself a youtube channel if you want to post videos on UU

Thanks for that, any advice on format etc. or will I find that out on YT.

When I first saw your moniker, I assumed you were Scottish until I saw your location.:)

This is a great question as I was wondering the same thing. I don't want to open a youtube account and am wondering if there are some other sites where the videos can be hosted.

I found the easy answer to click the film-strip icon when posting:

Supported videos include:
Hulu YouTube (Long) YouTube (Short) Vimeo Dailymotion Metacafe Google facebook Facebook Shares

It's worth noting that youtube is owned by Google and so if you have a Google account (Gmail, maps, or pretty much any android device) you already have a YouTube account - it's the same one you use for everything else.

There's no escaping!

Edit: also to add that you can list your videos as unlisted (do they don't go into the general YouTube mix) but still post the link here for forum members.
