I'm a bit thick when it comes to all this techno stuff. I have a piece of video on my computer. Done in Windows Media Player, but not sure how to link it to this site. Yes I know there is a media player button on tool bar, but what data do I copy and put there. Does that make sense? Please spell it out in the most simple of terms. He He.

Cherie,

You should get yourself an YouTube account (http://www.youtube.com) and then use YouTube's features to upload your Windows Media Player video there. Once the upload is concluded, you will know the link to use for that video and you can use it here with our new video tags.

If it makes it any easier for you, once you get the link, you post it here and I'll tell you how to use it with our tags.

Got you tube account, but when I tried to upload from media player I couldn't do it. Told me that it was wrong format.

Cherie

What format is your video in (what is the file extension - wmv, something else)?

That seems to be a Windows Media Video file. It should be supported by YouTube.
How big is that file, can you tell me?

With that size it's hard for me to get the file from you and try to upload it myself... Do you have any other place where you try upload the file? Myspace, a personal web site or something from where I could download it?

Ok. I find strange that YouTube fails to accept the file, but will see if we can overcome that.

Amy

ps- it just failed loading onto u tube it said unable to convert video file I made it in windows media maker so I don't know why it wouldnt load onto there, how do I go about it using flikr instead? Do I need to pay to use videos on flikr?
Thanks

Hi Amy,

Once the video is uploaded, you just need to use our video tags and post the link inside. When you use the Reply to Topic link, there is a row of video buttons above the message are, and you just choose the one that suits your video. The buttons will add a pair of tags and the link is posted inside.
Once you have the link, either try to use it as explained or post the link and I'll show it how to use it.

Regarding the video upload, what file extension has your video, wmv?

Hi Ruj
I'm having problems with the video altogether because i have made it is windows movie maker but i've just found out that it won't play in windows media player which I think s strange so although it has been made it won't play anywhere apart from in the set up program I made it in, i'm not sure what file extension it is.
Thanks

What is the file name? You must have saved it somewhere, so have a look and let me know.

Sorry I have a more basic question first, in windows movie maker do you know how to cut some of the timeline? I thought that it would only include the photos I had added however in total the video is around ten minutes long whereas the real video is only around 2mins, i've looked in the help opinion and tried a few things but not been able to do it!
