When uploading video/audio to Mandelbulber (where I live and play), there's no longer a link to the video. You can fill out the title and description, keywords, and even a preview picture, but there's no longer any link to the actual video! I've wanted to post links to the last 3 fractal videos like I always do, and the link is no longer there.

I enclosed a screenshot of the upload window, now missing any link to the video.

Am I the only one with this problem? I didn't see another help topic with this issue, but most people post pictures rather than links to videos.

Should have put a short info up when we changed that setting. sorry!

Old procedure
embedding a video via the gallery which then creates a topic in the main forum leading back to the gallery from where it's best to visit youtube to watch properly.

--too many steps making no sense.

so we disabled videoupload and embedding in the gallery.

to show your videos from now on, please create a topic in the video board:
and embedd it using the youtube/vimeo tags (see attached screenshot)
less steps for both uploader and viewer.

Thanks! I did find the old way a bit cumbersome, but it worked. I see that I can add the prefix "Mandelbulber" onto the topic title as well. I appreciate the info!
