I know MNHQ did one recently, was it the Chris from Doodle Do webchat one???? Can't remember.

I say you we can't

DH wants me to try, so forgive me if the end of this post is filled with shite.........grin

So, tech....why not?

suwoo Thu 23-Jul-09 21:46:58

Ha ha, I'm still winning.

suwoo Thu 23-Jul-09 21:49:13

God, he's making me try again.

You can embed a You Tube video link with the usual double brackets.

C'etait un Rendez vous

By the way, if you have never seen this film it is 8 mins 40 seconds. It is wonderfully mad and do watch right to last few seconds for the Awwwww wink moment.

I can't even drive and I still love it with the sound on!

ABetaDad Thu 23-Jul-09 22:00:28

That should make DH happy and he might well like the video too if he has not seen it before.

suwoo Thu 23-Jul-09 22:06:40

Thanks for your help abetadad, but that is just a link, any old poster can do that wink

here is a thread with an inbedded video.

suwoo Thu 23-Jul-09 22:07:20

embedded

suwoo Thu 23-Jul-09 22:20:24

Bump for tech or MNHQ bods.

ABetaDad Thu 23-Jul-09 22:26:55

Ah right I understand now what you are trying to do. You need to do HTML programming of the underlying script.

Tinker Thu 23-Jul-09 22:27:58

Is it a video of you rowing?

Miamla Thu 23-Jul-09 22:28:54

i think its sweet that your DH is so interested in what can and can't be done on here grin

ButterbeerAndLemon Thu 23-Jul-09 22:33:11

You can't do it unless you are Tech. There was a period of a couple of hours one day when the code wasn't properly locked down and we could embed pictures (and possibly videos), but that got "fixed" pretty quickly.

MARGOsBeenDrinkingTea Thu 23-Jul-09 22:35:34

lol tinker

suwoo Thu 23-Jul-09 22:47:58

DH just wants to make the point that his forum is better than mine.

We have no life you see wink

KingCanuteIAm Thu 23-Jul-09 22:50:41

His forum is better (IHO) because you can embed films? I would have to disagree, can you imagine clicking on every thread to be met with "baby's first burp/smile/poop" or "my mooncup disaster"... some things are best left unfixed IYSWIM grin

suwoo Thu 23-Jul-09 22:58:02

They aren't quite the films they embed though wink

lol at your choice of dodgy videos, have you been on my other threads tonight?

<<cough, mooncup, cough>>

Miamla Thu 23-Jul-09 23:13:00

nooo, they mustn't ever allow videos to be embedded by us lesser mortals. i need say no more than friday bumsex threads

my DP's a forum user but despite this teases me about being on here. i have recently found out that one of the forums he frequents doesn't have a single post by him..he's a lurker!!!! Needless to say, he's stopped teasing me about being on here now grin

ButterbeerAndLemon Thu 23-Jul-09 23:18:28

Mumsnet is deliberately low-tech, though. We don't feel the need to over-compensate for our shortcomings with fancy-pants multimedia...

KingCanuteIAm Fri 24-Jul-09 09:56:32

Suwoo, no coincidence I promise - but bumsex is an even scarier thread video idea grin

suwoo Fri 24-Jul-09 10:20:02

He can't get his head around the fact that we can't edit posts. I have explained to him that we prefer it that way wink.

KingCanuteIAm Fri 24-Jul-09 10:24:52

lol - well there have been moments when I thought an "extreme emergency edit post" button may be a good idea grin

BigTech (MNHQ) Fri 24-Jul-09 16:08:57

You cannot embed youtube videos into Mumsnet Talk.

Hope that has cleared things up.

Have a great day.

Well, you can Tech wink

Am I allowed to ask why not?

Thanks for your answer by the way.
