John, just a friendly suggestion:

You might get more hits on your vids if you post a 'teaser' photo or two to pique a reader's interest. With the blizzard of media to keep up with out there, many folks -- myself included -- tend just to bypass links if they don't know whether it will interest them. There are only so many browsing minutes in a day...and they're getting dearer and dearer. Big Smile

Cheers

Greg

Greg, thanks very much, that's a great idea!

Do you just place an image in the body of the post?

 

Thanks

Open your video in youtube>copy the URL>Press the little Insert/edit video button in the reply menu bar, second row>paste the url into the 'source' box and hit ok.

 

 

I agree with GregBale, I usually don't click hotllinks either, especially when there are many of them. For some reason, I checked one of yours.

I'm a tough customer when it comes to youtube videos, I have the patience of a two year old with them. Not entirely my fault, its a conditioned response from watching so much garbage by modelers/wanna be producers. I watched a part of one of yours, and I'd like to give you a thumbs up. Yes You have an interesting persona for the medium, IMHO. You've put some time and thought into the productions. Your layout and what you are doing looks very cool, too.
