Hey guys,

I use an android device. Can anyone give me a step by step tutorial on how to do the above?

Any help gratefully received.

If there’s a way to embed a video into a post, I would love to know it. For now I use url tags, such as:

Code: Select all

[url=https://youtu.be/fb-f5eHIUco?si=5VkosiYhWadwZ9zC]America on Ventura Highway[/url]
to wind up with America on Ventura Highway for example.

:lol: The moment I see a line of incomprehensible letters and slashes and dots like that, I go all clammy and weak at the knees Menolly!

If you want to just post the link, without typing in the title, I believe you can just paste it into the post. I believe the board will automatically make it a hyperlink.

Otherwise, use the button at the top of the Reply or Quick Reply window; that will generate the url tags for you. Then, paste the link between the opening and closing tags. But, it will still show up as a url address link. You’ll have to identify what video it is separately.

OK - I'll give it a shot in due course.

If I'm successful, you may have cause to regret this help Menolly: the amount of rubbish content I watch in any given day is truly overwhelming!

Be prepared for a significant proportion to start appearing here! (Cadbury Cream Eggs deep fried in sausage meat, anyone? Watch this space!)
