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.

Webcam Motion Capture.

I came across a youtube video recently where they use 4 webcams and motion capture software to do a cheap diy version of motion capture. Info seems pretty limited here and I can definitely use it for my indie film.  Please let me know if you've used such a set up and what software you used

"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.

Car Mods

Has instructables ever considered featuring some of Mightycarmods videos/DIY's? They are getting more and more popular every day! If you haven't seen them, check out their youtube channel:  http://www.youtube.com/user/mightycarmods?feature=chclk It's entertaining and very helpful and has saved me money so far! What do you guys think?

Subscribe to Author?

I had an idea... You know how YouTube allows you to subscribe to a "channel" (an account)? Perhaps we should have that for our authors, or Ibl'ers or whatever we call ourselves. The Ibles Robot may be a bit busy, but his girlfriend/secretary might be willing to PM me whenever whoever I've subscribed to posts something new. Kiteman had a good point: Make Groups subscribe-to-able Just a thought.

Would it be acceptable to post individual instructables about guitar songs?

I was going to make a youtube and post videos on how to play guitar songs for my friends, and i was thinkin..."Why not just post them on instructables?!" So would it be a good idea to post instructables on how to play a song? There would be lots of them and Im not sure if this is something that instructables was intended for. thanks!

Stats Suggestion

Are there any plans to update the "launch stats" feature?  It looks like the default is your top five based off total views even though these projects could be years old.  I know you can click on any project to see current stats but that isn't very convenient.  I guess I'm looking for something similar to youtube analytics (overview and realtime).

How did you find instructables?

Just leave a comment saying how you found out about instructables! Personally I found a video of lego guns on youtube, so I searched around for instructions and didn't find any. Then I realised I had k'nex too, so I searched for k'nex gun instructions and found instructables.

Monsterbike is a serious bicycle

According to his profile, wautur is in the Netherlands, but there's no other info on this one, sadly. Skip to 1:30 to see the bike in action.

Scrolling Issue

I have run across a rather peculiar bug while viewing instructables on the site. Whenever there is a slideshow or an embedded video (like a YouTube one inserted into a step/description), and I scroll down, about 10 pixels or so of the Slideshow/Video stay on the top of the body portion of my web browser. My browser is Mozilla Firefox 3.6 Beta 5, running under the operating system of Windows 7. An included screenshot is below.

Aquaduct: Mobile Filtration Vehicle

This is the winning entry from a Specialized Innovate or Die Pedal-Powered Machine Contest. The contest site is a bit frustrating to navigate because it's all slow flash, so skip that and go right to the Innovate or Die Youtube group to see all the entries. I'm skeptical of the developing world benefiting from a flashy tricycle with molded casing, but the concept is going in the right direction.

The AWESOME Button

Matt Richardson over at Make made an awesome button from the Staples Easy Button. When pushed, the reprogrammed button randomly selects a synonym to the word 'awesome', perfect for thinking of new (awesome?) words to include in a description when writing. As an added bonus, Instructables' own Scoochmaroo is (sorta) referenced briefly @0:20 Check out the video and make one yourself: via: MakeMagazine YouTube Chanel

Newbie I tried many times last night to upload pictures to my library and had no luck. Watched a youtube video on the subject, but still no luck. Are there an instructable to show me what I am doing wrong? I am using a newer Mac. Are the pictures in the wrong format I was able to choose files . when I hit upload, nothing seemed to happen and the library was empty. The text I entered vanished into the unknown.

GAH. I WANT HIGH-SPEED ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY!

Arrrrrrgh! Dial-up sucks! I can't watch anything on YouTube, play games online, or download anything! It makes me want to cry and slit my computer cables with an like an emo! By the way, I have dial-up because I live outside of the nearest town, and the cables don't go to out-of-town. And wireless sucks and is extremely expensive.

Thank you...

Hello again, long-time no-see Instructables K'Nex community! I figured I'd make one last forum topic as a sort of farewell. This community was pretty incredible to me and for me in my early years of high school. Instructables was such a intuitive outlet for my free time years ago, and I wanna thank everybody who was there to tell me that my early K'Nex creations were trash. As sarcastic as that may sound, I mean it in all sincerity. Criticism is a good thing to learn from, and it has made me into the person I am today. Thanks again everybody! I'm not eloquent enough to describe how much those 2 1/2 - 3 years meant (and mean) to me. I've got one or two more things up my sleeve before I go though, so keep an eye out. In the meantime, check out this pre-view of my latest project. Lastly, if you are into gaming (a bit of self promo here), I decided to do something that no one else has done before, start a gaming channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWayoCFvVX9cmLo78q2lo_w If you see something you like, subscribe, yada yada yada, tell your friends, yada yada yada... -The Red Book of Westmarch (I had no idea how much I missed typing that out at the end of every instructable)

Favorites grouping

I love this site and there's so many instructables I have in my favorites that it's hard to keep them all organized or even find one when I need it.  I'd love to see a way to group or organize them.  Possibly create your own groups or be able to tag them and sort by tag names, etc.  I was thinking maybe a system similar to youtube. Or maybe this is already implemented and I'm horribly blind!  hehe Anyway, thanks for listening :)

MakerBot plays Tetris

YouTube user belakor110 has posted this video of a MakerBot playing the Tetris theme. According to the brief description, this is done using gcode. This reminds me of the song "A Simple Text File" by Man or Astroman? Check out that video here as well. The video is just a still image, but I can vouch for its legitimacy. I saw the band play the song in concert with just a beaten up ImageWriter II in front of a microphone. via adafruit

WImeo is censored in Indonesia

Hi I live in Indonesia and am a great fan of instructables, I recently signed up for Arduino class and robotics class. But turns out Wimeo that you use to show videos is blocked in Indonesia ( to stop people watching porn)  This makes it harder to follow the classes and see results of experiments and so on. Could you also make the videos available on youtube and just put a link in under the videos as that is not blocked here. ? thank you for your attention

Low voltage health problems

Hello, I saw a great project on youtube, a water button, and gave it a try. it works, all it does is when one touches water, a led turns on, just a proof of concept. But what I was worried about, is if there are any negative health impacts of 3.3 v going though you and into the ground? The power is not noticeable, but still, I worry. ps. I did Google this, but couldn't find anything.

Everytime I see the Instructable, My comp freezes. The file is 1.44mb. I was wondering If its too big. And what other method can I use to show it. Perhaps a Youtube video?

Stunt dummy. Quite awsome.

I just wanted to show off the dummy that me and my little brother made last night, its quite realistic(for coardboard), we used wire coat hanger on some of the limbs to restrict their movability so that it acts more realistic, we then coverd the coardboard fram in news papers, and taped it all down. last we added some clothes, and threw him down the srairs. It was magical.EDIT: video is up!!! Youtube vidoe~Twisted

The Assassins Creed Hidden Dagger

Altair ,the protagonist of the game Assassins Creed has a hidden dagger attached to his arm which is obviously spring loaded, but he unsheaths it by pressing a button with his pinky and retracts it with the same. I wanted to know if it is possible to make such a contraption and how it would work just to satisfy my curiosity. There are a number of videos on youtube but most of them are gravity driven or do not give any explaination so I'd be obliged if someone helped me out with this.

Why is this website so insanely laggy?!?

Why is it that on my mac, instructables is so laggy, not slow, but it's laggy on my browser? Like even if I click my middle button to open an instructable or post in a new tab, it freezes for a few seconds while it trys to load and I get a spinny cursour. Even youtube videos and other embedded videos don't play full speed on here. I got a 1.2ghz ibook g4 with 512 of ram and I was pretty sure that was fast enough.
