A new idea for the video section Answered

Hello all, I have noticed that you can't upload WMV or AVI etc. format videos for the video section of instructables. Do you think that it is a good idea to make a video format like those of Youtube or Metacafe flash windows? I don't know exactly what to call them, but if you had an instructables account, it would be a good idea to be able to upload as ifyou were on youtube. Thoughts? You could also upload them into the everyday instructables instead of having to download them and watch them on Windows media player of the Mac equivalent. If you don't know what I mean, please ask and I will try and explain further.

Isn't that just reinventing the wheel?

What's the point of going to all that effort when you can already upload it to YouTube et al and then embed it?

A lot of people can't/aren't allowed to make youtube accounts (guess which one for me).

Why, for goodness' sake? If it's parents worried about nasty people leaving naughty comments on your videos, you can block the ability to leave comments when you upload the video, or later if you need to (I had to do that to one of mine because it was attracting a lot of spam comments).

Why not allow videos to be allowed to be uploaded to Instructables, and make an 'ibles flash player for them? I thought that was already in the works.

Not everyone's parents are as understanding as you, sadly.

The Mac equivalent of Windows media player is Quicktime Player but shouldn't this idea be put in the form of a letter and sent to the Head Person of Instructables?
