I made the video. Youtube has some really high tech system that can detect copyright infringement instantly! It blocked it almost right away after I posted. If anyone has any suggestions for less strict websites, let me know and I'll post it.
Upload the video to your facebook.
When you're on the page where you can view your video on facebook, click on 'embed video'. A little window will pop up.
Copy the text in the text-box.
Paste it into a forum reply. You'll get something like this:
<object width="400" height="300" ><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="movie" value="www.facebook.com/v/1661698349648" /><embed src="www.facebook.com/v/1661698349648" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="300"></embed></object>
Find the URL to your video in there. I highlighted it in red in the above text.
Now delete all the other random stuff that you pasted, and leave only the URL.
You'll have this:
Now just put URL tags around it, and people can click the link to your video
(The video I just posted is me navigating the Queen of Chilliwack last November. For the privacy of myself and the crew, I'm going to modify this post with a fake video URL in a few days. Until then, enjoy this )
So, are these video segments actually under copyright?
If so, I can't help but note the hypocrisy of young Mr Viking enthusiastically offering tips for getting around it, while in every post sternly warning people about poaching his ferry photos.
Most of us are probably somewhat selective about how often we observe intellectual property rights. If we really want to see something, we're usually pretty good at rationalizing why, in this case, it doesn't really matter.
