    Hi there :frow

    Yes you sure can. You need to first upload the video to YouTube or similar. Copy the url to the video then using the video (film roll) icon in your editor paste it in your post.

    I thought of that, but I wasn't sure if there was an easier way. Thanks!

    like uploading directly from your device to this site?

    i don't think they have the server capacity or money to allow users to upload videos directly to the site

    all forums will allow you to link videos from video hosting sites..

    i have yet to come across a forum that will allow its users to upload their videos directly before

    i just recorded a 10 seconds video.. and it's 46MB in size..

    i don't think this is possible

    some forums will limit the size of an image to 3MB.. but BYC does not.. which is rare :)
