Question: I'm trying to write a new Instructable right now and am trying to put three embedded video on one of the steps. The first video shows up fine, but I can't seem to get the next two to work. Is there a limit of one embedded video per step that I don't know about, or is this some sort of bug in Instructables?

I was just wondering do video codes show up in sinstrucables? like myspace and codes from youtube?

Topic by gotja  


Well, i believe there are already some good videos on YouTube. So do you think that we should use already made videos off YouTube, or should we make our own. Please help me make a disicion for the next instructable.

embedding video

I am trying to get some video embedded in my instructable, yet nothing shows up. I have followed the same process of uploading and using the embed code per several of my other instructables, yet now it seems like it's just stopped working. my process: Upload video to youtube, wait for youtube to do its thing, copy embed code and paste into 'embed video' in the rich editor. While editing it shows the placeholder for the video, and the source code shows the right html for the video. When I preview the placeholder is gone and the text flash animation is displayed where video should be. Youtube setting is 'unlisted', which enables embedding. My other videos have the same settings and have worked in previous instructables. Windows 7 FF 3.6.10 help!

Video Splitters

Does anyone know of any good, freeware, video splitters? I have some home videos that I converted to digital format (MPEG), but they are a good 2-3 hours long, per film. It takes forever to put them on my mp3 player. Most of the splitters I have seen only convert the first few minutes, then you have to buy the program. Any help would be appreciated!

Video embedding

Hi Is it possible to add, Photobucket to the webpages you accept embedding from?  I am having issues with a lot of the webpages you accept, but photobucket has been working great for me. I can make it work in the preview mode of building a video instructable, but when I try to publish it, it will not except the video embedding code. DFD

Video, please!

There are lots of Instructables about making paper planes.  This is a Good Thing. Like any other group of Instructables, they vary in quality from the appalling to the brilliant, but they almost all share the same Bad Thing. For projects where the behaviour of the finished item is all-important, they do not have a video to demonstrate the different throwing styles required and the expected flight characteristics. Please, paper engineers, can we have video of the flights?

Video playback

I've recently noticed that embedded Vimeo-hosted videos don't play in Firefox 47. While they don't even show In SRWare Iron or SlimBrowser,  in Firefox the video window is visible and sets up ready to play, but when moused over it displays a meaningless error ("Curses!", "Aw fiddlesticks!", etc.) claiming "This video can't be played with your current setup". "Leg for a wooden table (incredible strength)" is a recent 'ible example. If I go through the process of searching the page source code for the video ( in the above example), copy and paste the URL, and go to the link directly, the video plays perfectly, so it's not some browser or other setting that's blocking Vimeo. (Even tried with all browser add-ons disabled - no joy.) I'm not competent enough to troubleshoot the issue, but it's frustrating to have to dissect the page to play embedded videos in a separate tab. Any work around would be appreciated. Thanks.

Question by LucasOchoa    |  last reply

Streaming video

So I bought a hidden camera off eBay, and it's a total joke. The receiver is decent, but the camera itself, not so much. It is connected to a 9 volt battery, and the only way to have the battery last longer than 3 hours is to attach multiple batteries in a parallel circuit. I was wondering if there was a way I could, using the camera, record the video directly like using a video camera. The camera is small which is good, but I need a better way to record video. Thanks in advance.
