We have enabled all registered users to use the upload video . The video file size is now 51200 KB. And if you look in the lower left corner of your message box you will see the new Upload Video button next to the Attach Files button.

You can upload directly from your computer, phone or tablet.
You will choose your video from your storage gallery, then upload it. Once it is uploaded have your cursor where you want it, then go down and click VIDEO next to the image of your uploaded video.

This is just a test I did last evening.

And we just made the button work a little better as we found a few folks were having some issues.

Also, if anyone has an issue seeing the video, try it with Edge. We have found occasionally in Chrome the control bar at the bottom of the video will show, and will play the audio but you will not see the video. But if viewed in Edge no issues. I've heard it may be that Edge works better with Win10 than Chrome does on a few features.

Also, when you have uploaded your video, you need to 1. Upload and 2. Click on the video button next to the uploaded image.

Be sure to have your cursor where you want the video to appear.

Well, it loaded well, but it won’t play. Neither will Dads ale. Annie’s played ok though 🙂

Edit: dads ale is working now. Perhaps it takes time. I might be further away.

The vids in post 9 and 10 are not working just a white circle spinning I am on my android phone on 4G I will try on WiFi and on my pc when I get home.

Edit to add non of the videos play they take a while to load then when I get the arrow to play the video buffers it's probably my crap O2 mobile data speeds I will see if youtube works.

Update -

My phone works fine on the wi-fi all the videos in this thread play.

My phone will still not play the videos using mobile data but Netflix and YouTube work in my house i assume as i was in the town centre i had lost signal, have run a speed test and i was getting .6 Mbps down in town am now getting 1.2 Mbps still poor but at least some video will play.

Short clip of my new 16L fermenter, I struggled to pop the lid of this it was so stiff.
This latest brew (US pale ale, Safale 05) has already blown it off once.
Not had a ferment as ferocious as this for a while - airlock popping and whistling away, top is visibly bulging !
