Hey folks hope I'm posting this in the right place I'm a foot dragging rebel when it comes to computers I'm still using Win XP (Pro) and use a Sony handy cam to record home movies and take pictures with.

I've not posted a video yet but was wandering is there anything I need to know about formatting to be able to upload my video Ferret has mentioned we need video's and since I've enjoyed watching his I guess I should post one of my own at some point in the past I've done video's for youtube and had to reformat my stuff for that of course this was an ordeal that took me over sixteen hour's for a two part repair video I did.

Thanks in advance for any help.

@ Watchtower68: I have XP Pro myself. I found the best way to submit a video here is to go through Youtube as a wmv file. You know how to save your video as a movie file.  Seem's I tried posting a video here before and it didn't go through Youtube, when anyone clicked on the thread, the movie auto-played.

So my advise, if you have done the Youtube thing then just copy and past the URL to your post and it will work. When you copy and paste the attachment will just be the URL, after you submit your posting, go back to your post and see your results.

It's very simple with XP Pro.

Hi Watchtower68. If you're talking about posting a video here in the forum, all you have to do is upload it to Youtube, copy the URL under "share" and paste it into your forum post. A preview window of the video will appear within your post and others will be able to play it right here.

If you've already posted videos to Youtube, you have an idea of what's involved in that. It really doesn't have to be a 16 hour ordeal, though. Do you have a webcam? If you're on XP, which isnt THAT old, and you have a webcam, you should be able to use your webcam to record a video and post it to Youtube fairly easily. You may already have Windows Live Movie Maker installed on your computer (I think it comes with XP), which will let you export your video to a Youtube compatible format.

If you're talking about videos for the group projects, that's a different matter. You'll send your video file, in a standard video format like .mov, .avi, .wmv, etc., to Pierre using a file transfer site like Sprend.com.

I hope that helps. -- Diane

I was thinking about it later and I think that Windows Live Movie Maker started with Windows 7 (or Vista, but I never had that so not sure), not XP. You might, however, have its predecessor, Windows Movie Maker. Both are similar and pretty easy to use, but Windows Movie Maker has the added feature of being able to directly upload to Youtube.

With either program, though, you can export to a format that can be uploaded to Youtube.

One other thought: if you've got a fairly recent still camera that also shoots video, the quality should be fine for this purpose and the file format should be Youtube-friendly.
