How to Embed a video trailer in your post.
I've activated this forum to allow embedded objects to be posted so when someone creates a trailer discussion, they can put in their post.
I'm pretty sure a lot of us know how to do this but I'll write it out here for those whom might have questions on it.
Usuallly within hours that a trailer is online, it will show up on various video sites like Google or Youtube. When you're searching through those video sites, if you find a trailer or video clip, featurette, etc that you want to post, here's how you do it.
Go to that Video clip url on that site. Usually on the top right, it will have the "Trailer" information on the right hand side. It will have two text boxes of code.
-One is usually the url link code.
-One is usually the embed object code.
Copy the Embed object code. (ctrl-C)
Come to this forum and create "Post New Thread".
Write down your post and paste the Embed object code (ctrl-V) here in your post.
People will then be able to view your trailer from your post instead of going to an outside link.
Of course, sometimes it's unavoidable. The trailer may not be on a video site somewhere or it may be in HD only. Most of the time, it will show up on the video sites quickly and if you have no scruples on HD trailers or if your computer can't handle that HD format anyway, you can feel free to embed the trailer here.
If you have any questions, let me know.
