Unsupported Video Host.......can't upload video from youtube

I have been trying for a few days now to get one of my youtube videos on Instructables with no success. I have done it before, so I know how to do it. When I get to the page where it wants me to paste the embed code from youtube, it alerts me at the bottom of the page saying "Unsupported Video Host" (in white letters on an orange banner). I have tried changing the embed code several ways, and using just the URL....nothing seems to make any difference. I tried in a new browser. I tried on different days. My other video from youtube works just fine. Am I doing something wrong or is there some kind of bug?

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?

How do you add the gunfire effect on videos? Answered

My team and I are gonna make a trailer for a certain book. We don't have licenses or even the materials for special effects. I keep seeing these edited videos with gunfire that looks so real like "The Incredibly Slow Murderer with an Extremely Ineffective Weapon". Just go type it into the YouTube search box. If my trailer looks extremely real, then I'll post it on YouTube. Oh, and the software I have to use for these effects has to be freeware.

Knex, Green, and YouTube

Hi. I am a nobody. I am from the magical land, away from Europe, where lepreachauns live. Ireland. I make K'Nex, and have been for many years. Within my daily browsing, I have found that many people have seen a video on YouTube called "A Gun Show". And, also that they want the "Kaynex 7". I have made it, no instructable, no picture and not even a description. Maybe Sunday, I have no cam. So, it also happens, that I have made my own designs. So, Sunday - Picture day. Slán leat HBF

What is the best mic/setup for Youtube voice overs at $50-$80 US? Answered

Hello all, Does anyone out there do voice over work or have videos you apply voice overs to? I have recently started a show on Youtube and I don't like the audio quality I am getting. I am currently using my closet as a recording booth and a Rode Video Pro Mic direct into my laptop's mic input. It's okay but i want better. I have a budget of $50-$80 to spend. I have been looking at the Audio Technica AT2100 USB/XLR mic, as it has some awesome reviews but i want to hear from the Instructables community as well.

Why won't my video upload from youtube? Answered

I still can not upload my videos from youtube. I gave up trying some months ago and decided to come back and see if the problem had been fixed but still no joy. Anybody have the same problem? I have used the embed code from the 'Share' function (both options) and the long link in the address bar, which I have now placed in the details on my 'instructable'. I have used both Mozilla and Internet Explorer to deliver the code but stil nothing. Any ideas? Regards Pavlovafowl aka Sue

Sharpen Sickle by Peening?

I've read, and seen youtube about sharpening a sickle or scythe by cold hammering the edge to a very thin, sharp edge.  Although I get the idea of coldsmithing (kinda) it just seems to be something that I don't have the knack for yet. I also don't have some of the specialized jigs I've seen on youtube. Do any of you have experience with sharpening an edge by hammering it while cold? Tips?

Anyone need any of my youtube videos?

I'm going to be using my channel for other things and, quite frankly, I honestly don't want to keep up the more geekish K'nex videos d(^_^d) I'll still be around for a little longer. I won't build much, I get to it like once a month literally, but I'll still mess around most likely until summer. After that, I'm off and probably won't bring my K'nex with but I don't know. If I have the room, could be something to show off I guess. Anywho, if you guys need any specific video, I'll post the exclusive link to that video but otherwise I'm hiding them from public and friends. I'll be keeping up the knot tieing and linerider videos, though.

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!

Halloween Contest Submission Confusion

I suspect that I am not the first person to contact you on this. As I read the instructions on Make, I didn't see that I had to post my videos on Instructables. To me, it appears that that was only one option, as was posting to the YouTube group. Are videos posted to the YouTube group exclusively (or the Flickr group) being considered? I posted them to the YouTube group in time. For your reference, the videos that I posted are as follows: MUTEX Labs (2008)Overview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVnGLCG9Nzg&fmt;=18Tech Walkthrough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3kWN3FdK7Q&fmt;=18 Monster Machine (2007)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hO11_Maiv4c&fmt;=18 Please help clarify the issue.
