Default How to upload a video to a thread

I am having trouble uploading a video to a thread I started not to long ago. I tried going down to the attachment tab in the reply box, and when I try to upload a video from youtube it says "invalid"? Whats up with that? Also it wont upload a video from my computer that I have saved, am I doing something wrong here? I see videos all over the threads on Jockey Journal, someone help a brother out please. Thanks guys.

To add a youtube video you simply need to paste the link to youtube. Just ensure it says http:/ rather than https:/

Are videos shown in previews? Sorry to hijack, hopefully it's a simple question.

I found that I was able to copy the URL of a you tube video onto this forum.
In the `go advanced` posting window, click the little earth/paperclip icon and insert the you tube address and it worked for me.
The you tube link I used is the URL to the video when you are on you tube and `watching it in full screen on desktop mode`. I just copied the URL from the top of the screen browser.
That's what worked in this situation for me.

Here's an example. Hope this helps.

You should just be able to copy and paste the URL of the video into the content now.

I updated it to include the https.
