The following is a series of tests using a video that I downloaded from You Tube. I figured out how to post but it's still a rather convoluted and roundabout way to do it! A tutorial like the one that Dwight did all those years ago for posting pictures, links and URLs (with visual aids) would be extremely helpful! This particular post was a failed attempt that I deleted and then had to fill.
Okay, we have a heartbeat! I see that embedding the video works but how do you get a You Tube video without embedding it? There must be a way cause everybody else has videos that don't have >embed> right after!
Alright!! Thanks Dwight! I'm not sure why the extra code is being added but I now know what to remove to get the >embed> removed from the post! I didn't want to clog up the works so I experimented with this second video and then deleted it rather than post yet another one!

It would seem that extraneous code is being added after the /a closing tag for the link. I took it all out in the above post as an experiment, and it seems to have worked. I used the "Source" button to do so.
Just trying things to allow access to a video stored on my MLS web storage space. It is a BIG file (17MB) so if somebody else sees this feel free to look, (assumming it works in the first place) but be warned it took quite a while to upload it and if it works fairly well, I will be posting it elsewhere in the regular forums (though I have not decided which forum to use [Live Steam or Public]).
If you back up a bit and go take a look at the link I posted above you'll find out why what stuff (i.e. the HTML tags) is there and why things are done as they are. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/hehe.gif Additionally, if once you get the flash block to display in the editor window, if you right-click it you'll get the Insert/Edit Flash dialog to display even though the button isn't present on the toolbar.
