    Attaching hammocking video files to posts

    I have posted on the thread a number of times with attached the JPEG images no problem, the other day I tried to post with some hammock related video attached.
    Could not get it to work My camera is a Fuji and producers AVI files I can't get them to attached to the post.
    Do I need to convert the files to some other format before posting. Could someone give me some advice

    thanks

    I'm not sure about having to do a conversion to post it. I use my youtube page to post videos if I need to. I just embed the link in the post. I'm not sure if they allow anyone to upload a video directly to the forums. They may not have that kind of space available. Even compressed videos take up a large amount of space, especially if your paying for that storage.
    I am me and no one else can be me without my permission.

    You'll need to upload it to a video host like YouTube or Vimeo. After that you can simply link or embed the video link in your post.
