adding a video instructable? Do they host, if so what is the time limit? Answered

Need information on video instructables.  Must the video be hosted on You Tube or the like, or can you upload directly to Instructables?  If so what are the time limits?

No they don't host videos...
Just upload to YouTube and copy and paste the embed code.

It would appear, if you go to the "Submit Instructable" button and click on "Submit New Video", that the video must be hosted on a different website such as Youtube or Metacafe. Then you just copy the embed code from the website that the video is hosted on and paste it into the code box when submitting the Instructable. The time limits will be the time limits of the website it is being hosted on. Hope this helps!

This is correct. Instructables doesn't host video, but you can embed videos from most hosting sites.

You see on YouTube the "embed" button - click and copy. There's a video function on the site where you just paste that in.
