I enjoyed reading this blog post.  The title really gained my attention.  I thought I would use this re-blog feature here on Active Rain, so others can also get the chance to read this great post!  Thanks!

Things are really starting to shake in the VBlogggers! group.   Especially with the upcoming 1st annual ActiveRain talent competition challenge beginning, thanks to Stacey Smith!  The group has added over 30 new members this week-end!  Welcome everyone to the video craze!

Video is something kind of new to some folks here in the rain.  So to answer some questions that I’m getting asked quite a bit I thought I’d put together a house keeping ARTip post this morn on videos.

First of all getting your video ready once you’ve uploaded it to YouTube (or where ever else you store yours) in order to embed a video into another website or blog such as here in ActiveRain:

  1. Click the Share button located under the video.
  2. Click the Embed button.
  3. Copy the code provided in the expanded box.
  4. Paste the code into your blog or website.

Another question that I get asked is how do I center my videos?  Remember when adding videos you first have to write your post completely and SAVE IT as a draft!!!  Because you will have to go back to edit it in the WYSIWYG mode.

I don’t know about you but reading through all that gobbly goop can get confusing!  I always need a way of finding  ‘where’ I want to paste that code!


Here’s a quick tutorial on how I do that;

Don, thanks for re-blogging.  Such a nice compliment when someone feels a post is worthy to pass along.  I really appreciate it!  I just hope it helps someone when embedding a video.  It took me so long to figure out how to do it right ~ I just want to save others some time!!!
