  1. Does anyone here, even newbies, know how to embed video codes to techspot so I can use the video as a reply to one of my threads?

    You can link to a video but we don't allow embedding.

    PS: You should try to follow our guidelines and use a proper descriptive thread title instead of a generic "I need to know this"

    sorry.....

    Why not allow embedding? I can't use URL off Flickr, so I could link it to some other site. They only do embedding. So I can't use the URL because they haven't provided one.

    reply back.....

    Yes, but that's for images only, I want videos, but they haven't provided me a URL for that video to be shown on another site. Only see option one: embedding video, there's no option 2: Link this page to another using this URL.

    Right. For a second I forgot Flickr can do more than images, but either way, embedding is not an option here :rolleyes:

    Okay, then

    Awwwwwww........ :(

    Then there's no way to show a video on your forums. hmmmmm I wonder if there's another site like flickr.com but atleast has an option where I can just copy and paste the URL for vidoes here, know any?
