Another way to post videos to galleries « on: September 30, 2021, 06:48:40 PM » Author: CreeRSW207
Is there any way that there could be another way to post videos to our galleries without a YouTube URL?

At the moment, no.

I'm not a web designer or programmer, so I don't know if it would be possible, you'd have to ask Patrick.

Why do you object to YouTube?  If you want to use a different service, your best bet would be to post a still in the gallery and link to the video in the description.

I just was wondering if we could have another way to post videos here for the people without a YouTube channel. I don't have one so I was seeking another way.

I'm afraid if we started having videos uploaded directly onto the site, we'd be out of space on the server quickly. Unfortunately youtube is the best way to go for now, but I appreciate you thinking of those who don't do youtube. If a solution comes up in the future we can look into it.

Personally, I don't care much for anything powered by Google, but I get your point. Yes, post a still and a link.

It might be possible to rewrite the coding to allow it, but it would take a hell of a lot of work, and all of that is done by Patrick in his spare time.  :wndr:

And his list of things to do is currently as long as all of the members' arms put together.!  :poof:

I've just looked and there is a section on the upload page URI/URL Uploads - I've never tried it, but maybe that might work..?  :wndr:

I think that one you post links to other hosting sites, never tried it myself either
