    Video sharing

    I dislike the YouTube exclusivity on this forum WRT embedding a video. There are other video sharing sites out there, and some are better than YouTube. I belong to Vimeo, which I find to be a better service than YouTube in that it doesn't overly compress video content to a point that you lose quality. I can put content on there in full 1080p HD for people to view. YouTube is just not as good.

    I would really appreciate the ability to embed my Vimeo content here, too.

    You can already do that. Simply take the video ID# from vimeo (the part after the / in the URL) and surround it in your forum post with vimeo tags.

    Example - To embed the following Vimeo video on the forum - www.vimeo.com/4930551

    Put this in your post - [vimeo]4930551[/vimeo]

    And you get this -

    thanks for the tip...but there's no mention of that tag option when you are composing a post. Just a button for the 'tube.
