What if videos aren't my friend? Can we have a Sign, biblical or other? Answered


I am, through circumstances, restricted to using an old... I mean really old... Mac laptop, which can't display videos in less than a weekend. it is slightly off-putting to want to check out an instructable... I'm not cool enough to use abbreviations... only to find that it's a video. I celebrate the information, but I deplore the medium. Can we have videos marked as such, the way I seem to remember them being?

It would be nice to have some indicator in the RSS feed, as well. Just looking down the list, it could be as simple as putting "[i] Lady Gaga Cigarette Glasses," "[s] Knex Rally Car Version 4," and "[v] Optimus Prime Transformers Costume."

There might be a different RSS feed that does that already, the site has changed dramatically multiple times since I put that Live Bookmark up...I think it's just the "Recent Instructables" feed.

In the preview image of the instructable listings such as the homepage, you should see a black bar at the bottom of the image that says VIDEO or SLIDESHOW. These distinguish it from the full instructables. Even if you click on those video instructables to get to the intro page, do the videos try to autoplay and hang up your system? I normally get the video link that you have to click on to play.
