    How do you post videos on CB

    Whats the best way to post short videos on CB?
    I get sent videos using WhatsApp on my cell phone,
    I get it uploaded to photos.google.com and get the link to it
    BUT you can view everything else that I have there too.
    I can't put it on Imgur because it's to long.
    What is a good way of sharing a 90-second video on CB ?

    If it is a youtube video, I have just been posting the link to it. I am not sure about other hosting sites, but the links from Utube work. There is also a little icon up in the tools above this post. (2nd in from the Right that looks like a couple of frames of film). You can use that one too I think.

    Maybe someone else can help if what I said does not work for ya.

    G'luck!

    I'm like JB, when in doubt I search Youtube for the same video first.
    Then it is a simple copy/paste.

    I use this to post youtube videos so the player opens right in the post:

    Example #1: video=youtube;*]http://www.youtu.be/watch?v=*[/video

    I have removed the [ and ] from the beginning and the ending of the example #1

    If I put a [ at the beginning of Example #1 and a ] at the end of it, it makes the player load in this window like this:



    I go to youtube and rt. click the video while it's playing and choose "Show video URL" then highlight that and copy it, then paste it into the post I am making temporarily.

    For example, this is a Doug & Pat comparison of different guitar pickups: https://youtu.be/gtDSKBqKrRw so I highlight the syntax AFTER the / and I replace the * in the example I posted and it will make the video play right here in this window.

    So using Example #1 and replacing the * with the actual video URL after the / sign, I copy and paste in gtDSKBqKrRw and now Example #1 now looks like this:

    video=youtube;gtDSKBqKrRw]http://www.youtu.be/watch?v=gtDSKBqKrRw[/video

    If I were to add the [ and ] to the above example, and post it, it will make the video playable right here in this post....... Like this below:
