adding a video

Postby Diane » Wed Jun 12, 2019 3:54 pm

How do I add a video (of my plants) to my post, please? Tried the usual way of adding pics but the site won't accept a video. It plays on Facebook and Messenger but not here.

Probably too big.
Post it in a streaming website like YouTube and the post the url on here.

I had to do a warranty claim this week for a flickering illuminated bathroom mirror and they asked for a video on WhatsApp. Well I don't have a smartphone or other Apple device so I couldn't do that. Then I remembered the laptop we use for crossword help had a camera and video function so I took one for a minute and shared it on OneDrive and sent them a link. Really easy, worked a treat, sending me a replacement part under what I discovered was a 10 year warranty. I would post the link to prove it works but it is pretty boring!
