Links to videos
« on: June 25, 2018, 11:43:57 PM »
In the Fractal Movie Gallery section, how do you post a link to a video on Youtube or Vimeo where you get the thumbnail that shows the video if you click on it?  When I post a link it only shows the link address, and I have to upload a separate image which shows up below.

upload of video/audio through the gallery has been disabled as it would flood our server.
sadly the gallery doesn't hide the upload video/audio button (one of its many flaws, yet it still is the best gallery for the forum software we use).

so, to upload video from vimeo or youtube, just start a thread here https://fractalforums.org/fractal-movie-gallery/19/
and then use the youtube/vimeo embedd brackets for your link to embed them. see attached image.
