Videos not interfacing properly when adding Instructable to collection

   OS: Windows 7, Dell desktop, Internet Explorer and Chrome (all most recent versions as of 1/27/16), I was looking at: Build a Lightsaber   by MrTinkerer (with attached image.  Note that this happens for any video in any Instructable I view).  To reproduce, simply click the add to collection button and scroll past the video.  The video also cuts into the header when scrolling normally.

when you guys do videos, do you write out your script?

Just curious how you guys go about doing videos.  I recently did several for my instructable, and man did it take a long time.  Mostly because I'd stumble or mumble and have to start over.  I finally called it quits and just used what I had rather than really producing what I wanted. Do you guys write out a transcript or something before hitting start on the camera?

Bug: embedded YouTube videos on iPad

YouTube videos imbedded on instructible pages only provide audio.  The video is black but the audio plays as expected.  The pause stop and play function work normally.  Just a black video with sound.  Imbedded videos work on other sites like Make, hackaday, and hacked gadgets. I assumed it could just be my iPad, but I just did a restore to factory setting and am in the process of reloading data and apps when I noticed the videos still don't work. Thanks iMega

Embedding Videos Appears To Be Broken

I can't get videos to embed for this page: https://www.instructables.com/id/Super-Mario-Bros-Warp-Pipe-Sound-Effect-Toilet-To/step5/Demonstration/ I've embedded videos before and I've tried several different links and two formattings of the iframe tag without success. Simply copying and pasting the embed link from youtube doesn't work.

Sometimes you have to throw out the wheat with the chaff

I like slideshows, I know not everyone does, meh. I love instructables, with text and pictures, and the occasional video demonstrating the item. But the videos, oh dear Ghod, the videos. I don't really like the videos, but when these metacafe people carpet bomb the front page with a dozen videos, I want to punch them in the groin. So, nope, never, ever gonna look at another video again, don't care if you invented a space drive, and brought back a freaking green skinned alien babe with two navels, not gonna watch it. That's all, I feel better.

"This video contains content from SME" message

Hi everyone.  I have an Instructables I recently posted which contains some videos. I've never had trouble with people viewing my videos on previous instructables I've posted, but on my most recent one, E4-B4 Astromech Droid, on of the videos has the following message... This video contains content from SME. It is restricted from playback on certain sites. Watch on YouTube." So first off, what the heck is SME? If it's such an issue, what does it leave a link to view the video on YouTube, which it plays in anyway? How can I get rid of it? And why is it that Instuctables.com is one of the sites that has this issue? This particular video does contain some third party content which I do have their permitton to use, so I don't see why I get this rather annoying message.  Thanks guys.

Can I add my Autodesk Screencast just like an Youtube video?

I create projects on software and document them on Instructables. But it's always better if I can make a recording of what I did, no matter how many screenshots I add. I use Autodesk Screencast for recording my desktop screen, but I can only add them as links which will take you to a different webpage. In simple words, they are not added like Youtube videos.  Is it possible to add Screencasts like I add as Youtube videos?

Is There a Name For This Kind of Stuff?

Where you get audio clips from a video clip, (Like a McDonald's Commercial) and play them in some sort of order to get some sort of song.I totally want to try this: Does anyone know of any free/cheap audio editing programs that will allow me to do this? I can always try just edited the clips with Adobe Premiere, but that might be kinda hard.rgaqghgwyh6j8ukl7rku

Do videos get featured?

I've noticed that video instructables don't seem to get featured, is that intentional? Or is it just that so many fewer video instructables get submitted that 'Featured' ones get lost?

Are the videos from Catchword really instructional, or just pitches?

Has anyone bothered to watch any of the videos which user Catchword has been uploading today?  They're long enough that they could actually be instructional, not spam.  I'm having trouble with high-bandwidth downloads today (damn you, AT&T;!), so I can't check for myself.

Youtube is horrible now

So, when I went to Youtube one day, I watched a Rockband video. And I'm like... okay, why did this person put different music on the video? Then I realized it was on most youtube videos. THEN, my favorite Youtube account was suspended. Why was all of this happening? Copywriting. I mean, most people probably bought the song off of Zune or Itunes. Most videos that look awesome are ruined because of the earache-cheap-cheesy garbage youtube puts onto videos. I think we should start a boycott or someone should start a petition or something! Does anyone have any other ideas?

Problem wiht Embeding videos

I wasn't very sure if this was a bug report or not so I just made it a forum. For some reason instructables is not allowing me to embed videos. IT comes up with the window where I paste the embed code but it doesn't allow me to press OK at all. Is this problem happening to anyone else? I use Windows 7 Internet explorer 9 I hope you guys can help!

Kinda not really a bug but it certainly bugs people....

Hi All, First: great work with the App.  Love the layout and the relative ease I can get around with it.  Works like it's suppose to it seems. Bug:  Videos don't show.  I commented on an 'ible about the lack of explanation on how it works(https://www.instructables.com/id/5-Gallon-Bucket-1HP-1-Human-Power-Front-Load-Cloth/) and then the author replied ot me asking if I'd seen the vid?  Vid? What vid?  So I logged into the site with my browser and lo-and-behold, there was the video in his 'ible!  Wait a sec...is he just pulling a fast one, put the vids up and trying to mess with me....*checks app* nope, vids are definitely not there. So, please....either embed the vids or at least give us the link to them!

Amount of video sections and duration you can use in a single INstructable?

I intend to upload my step-by-step video guide to making a Nintendo N64 console system into a handheld portable device; am currently about 60% completed in the project and uploaded about 10 videos to YouTube to cover the project up to this point.  By the time the project finishes, I could be needing about 20-25 videos, up to 10 mins long each. My intention is to upload the videos to this site for others to see; so my question is this - would I be able to post this volume of videos to this site on one topic; or would I need to put all the videos together? I have only just joined Instructables so a noob here, so would appreciate your comments and advice.  To give an idea of the videos I have for the N64 project so far,   http://moddedbybacteria.wordpress.com/retro-console-system-modding-guides/nintendo-n64-video-guide-log/ Better I ask at this stage! Obviously I intend to upload many other videos in the future, however this biggie might be the first one I upload here.

Wood Steaming and The Tubench: DIY Videos at their best.

It all started when I was on the internet, as usual, and began to search for ways to bend wood cheaply. I had heard of people doing it with just a copper pipe and a blowtorch, but I wanted some affirmation from the interweb before I inadvertently set by garage ablaze. Now, I don't know about you, but when I want to know how to get something done, I head to Youtube first. I'm not sure why, but I find how-to videos to be a much better starting point for a project than reading long, picture-less descriptions on someone's website, although it's probably just because I end up wasting extra time.A search for wood steaming and bending yielded this video of a man in Belgium who turned his backyard into a steam-run hell, or playground, depending on your perception of safety versus fun. I was blown away (perhaps literally) by this video. With the combination of wild 8-bit techno beats, precariously assembled and potentially deadly equipment, and a project of such a scale that even a music-video director would be envious, you have yourself one of the most incredible DIY videos I've ever seen. I watched it probably five times before I stumbled upon another video by the same guys. Despite high expectations, I could have never been prepared for The Tubench. Just when you thought these guys couldn't get any more insane, they give you this. They gave you the Tubench. If you thought building a bench was boring or at all a passive activity, you were wrong. Or, at least you were before you realized building a bench out of tubes requires speeding dangerously through parking lots, building it a surfboard, attaching it to your car like an antenna, and SAVAGLEY BEATING IT WITH EVERY SINGLE IMPROVISED BENCH-TORTURE DEVICE YOU HAVE... to ensure structural integrity, of course. Apparently, these things are actually available for order by emailing DIETRICHBONNE@hotmail.com. Well, I still have no idea who these guys are, or what possesses them to make such epic videos, but if they haven't been invited to Instructables already, someone needs to draft them in! Keep up the good work, my Belgian friends.Happy Hacking~Skyfinity

Spammers vs. Sponsors

We end up with this sort of problem periodically: companies who have legitimate content (their stuff is pretty useful) realize that Instructables is a good place to reuse their expensively-produced videos, so assign a summer intern to dump them onto the site en masse. This sucks, because no matter how good the content is, dumping it is spammy. What we generally do is to unpublish them, then Randy lets them out one or a few at a time so there's no annoying pile of similar videos in the recent feed. In the meantime, Lee (our ad sales guy) contacts the company to talk about better ways to do things than a drive-by video dumping. ;)  We'd like them to be part of the community:  run contests, put up good content, and stay to talk about it. Generally, to be more interactive and helpful.  So, hopefully this means that more companies will be sponsoring contests soon - stay tuned! Lee's on it. So, what to do if you see a huge pile of branded video? - Email or PM Randy. If it's a weekend, or you've just seen a ton of them appear at once, flag a couple of them so Randy will notice next time he's online.  He'll then unpublish and release the videos at a more measured pace.  (Don't go nuts with flagging - Randy sees all, and more flags just makes more for him to clean up.) - You could also comment to encourage them to be better Instructables citizens. "This is spam!" doesn't really help, and makes the company feel totally unwelcome.  We want to work with them, but in a way that's good for the Instructables community. Here's an example of a comment that could convince them do do something more interactive: "This is a (good/useful/interesting/informative) video, but dumping a pile of them on the site is feels spammy. Have you thought about running a (make up something fun and relevant) contest on Instructables? That would make me more excited about (your brand). Anyone on the about page can help you do something more fun."

Sharir1701 Knex Gun Videos To Be Removed

Hey guys! If you don't know me, this probably won't interest you much, so go right ahead. On the other hand, if you do know me, I just wanted to make a short announcement for the sake of clarification and understanding. Again, if you know me, then you would have known that I used to make innovative style Knex guns and I was quite the messy builder. I had a few good guns along the line (REMPAR, all S-series, M17s), and some pretty horrible ones too (SABR, FPMG, SAR5). I've stopped building for over a year now, and I'm pretty confident I'm not going to go back to it. I still have all my Knex boxed up somewhere, but I won't be using it in the conceivable future. Now, I'm sure not many of you know this, but I've started not so long ago, to be a small YouTuber. I post almost exclusively MineCraft content, of all shapes and sizes, and I am quite passionate about that. Now, the old Knex videos I have on my channel are all unlisted, so that nobody on my channel can find them, but you guys here can still watch them if necessary. For a couple months now I've been watching the analytics for my Knex videos and it seems like almost no one at all is still watching them, which seems very reasonable, as they're quite old and most people have already seen them. I don't REALLY mind them being there, but I would prefer to remove them, as I have absolutely no interaction with them, and as it appears, nobody does, really. So, I've decided to remove them from my channel. I'm not going to go straight ahead and remove them right now, no. What I've decided to do is to post this forum topic letting anybody who's interested know about this, and consider it for a second. So, my point is, if there's anybody who would like me to keep those videos up, for some reason, please tell me down below. I will make my final decision in two weeks from now, on January 15th (-ish). Just a little bit of advice, if anyone wants to see any of my videos for the last time, it would probably be a good idea to do so now, and that's also part of the reason I'm posting this. I'd just like to point out that me taking these videos down has no other implications on my Instructables account. All my 'ibles will remain as they are, but just without the videos. I'm probably going to forget to even take the embedded videos off if I do delete them from YouTube. So, once again, let me know if you really want me to keep them, if you're still interested, go watch them now, and lastly, have a happy new year and an amazing day! GODSPEED!

Problem with full screen in Ubuntu

Hey, I've been having a problem recently. I don't know if any one else is having this problem, or if anyone could help. I'm using Ubuntu as my OS. When I go to watch videos in Hulu and I click full screen, it briefly goes full screen (just long enough to see the hit escape to exit notification) then goes back to normal view. Does anyone know how to fix this? NOTE: I already tried disabling Cairo-Dock and it didn't help at all. Thanks in advance.

Embedding a Second Video in a Video Instructable?

I'm trying to embed a second video into my video instructable. I'm guessing that because it's a video instructable it is limited to the one main video and no other videos can be embedded? https://www.instructables.com/id/Optimus-Prime-Transformers-Costume/ You can see I've been trying, but I guess that's my question: is there any way to embed another video?
