    Posting Videos ANSWER #8

    It used to be really easy for me to post videos. I'd right-click, choose "url at current time", return to PT, select the insert video icon, and 99% of the time, the video pic appeared!

    Now, I can't seem to do that. The source videos pop up a little window with the link in it, which I copy. There is also a note about 'learn about HTML 5'.

    Any ideas, folks?

    I've only ever picked up vids from youtube, so I'm not sure where you are seeing the vids to copy the url.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Usually Viralnova and Care2. Often they link back to Youtube, which is contained in the link "box" when I right-click on it.

    However, this worked before...I got one to work a couple of weeks ago but was trying different things very quickly so I forgot which one worked!

    Not all videos are set up to be shareable, they do cost the original poster bandwidth, so that may be why.

    Well, these are from sources I have copied before. So...I don't know. I might Google this one.

    Eureka!

    I read where one fellow removed the "s" from the "https://" at the beginning of the clip and it works beautifully!

    Makes sense. The "s" is added for secure links.
