    Is there a thread or page with instructions on how to add a short video to a post? I searched for instructions but nothing popped up that was helpful.

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    The only way I know of to post videos is to make them on youtube and then post them on here.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Just copy and paste.....(open a new tab and get your video loaded. Then right click on the top address bar and "copy" it. Then come back to this tab with your post started and then right click again and "paste" the address here in this box.) Copy and Paste! :)

    sorry I am no help. Despite all the instructions and coaching, in 5 years I still can't handle pictures or videos without outside help. Welcome to BYC
