Title: to embed or not embed that is the question
Post by: KiwiNM8OR on September 23, 2008, 12:22:41 pm
Can we embed video on this site or is a link to YouTube (or wherever) more appropriate?

Link is easier, faster and takes less of the server.

On the contrary, the effect on the server is minimal. If the forum mod to automatically embed Youtube/videohost videos in the post were implemented, this server would not be hosting the actual videos. Not to mention it's easier and faster for the video to be embedded in the post where all you have to do is click on "play".

But no, flash embedding is disabled in the forum.
