    How to Upload a video!!

    Finally we can embed videos in this forum!

    And it's so simple even a 57 year old man can do it!!

    All you have to do is find the video you want to embed..it has to be from;

    # Hulu
    # YouTube
    # Vimeo
    # Dailymotion
    # Metacafe
    # Google
    # facebook

    Copy the url of that video in your browser. Not the embedded url. The URL at the very top of your computer screen. Yea..that one. Select the little icon that looks like a piece of movie film in the tool bar when you post here at SDF. Past your video's URL in that popup box. Click ok in that box and you are done..it's simple.

    And oh yea..DO NOT POST ANY PORNOGRAPHY OR NUDITY OF ANY SORT!! IF YOU DO YOUR ASS WILL BE BANNED FOREVER!!!

    Recently there has been a surge in hotlinking. I banned one member for 30 day because he hotlinked about 100 photos in 30+ post.

    All members are reminded not to hotlink your photos! Use a photo hosting site such as imageshack or photobucket. Don't know what hot-linking is??? Read this thread!! All photos that I discover that are hotlinked will be deleted and a suspension may follow!.

    How to upload photos..

    1) Download the picture to your computer by right clocking and making the selection "save image as".
    2) Use a reliable photo hosting to upload your photo. Follow their instructions.
    3) Copy and then paste the photo hosting URL for your pix on your post. Use the one that says for forum use. You may post as many as 25 pix in a single post at SDF.

    Simple!

    Best photo hosting site with no bandwidth issues.

    imgur

    Most other US based photo hosting sites have bandwidth issues.

    Photobucket is fine.(I use it).if you have a pro account(I do) for $3 bucks a month, otherwise don't use it. Your pix will eventually disappear. Tinypic use to be good until they were absorbed by photobucket. Now they also have bandwidth issues.
