So You want to post a video
« on: July 13, 2012, 06:13:02 PM »
hi everybody!
*hi dr nick*
okay, so today we're going to learn how to post a video. You do it in three steps.

1) First, you go to youtube and find a video of your favourite animal (or whatever) and then you copy the entire url.
that looks like this "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTD0tOnCn9g&feature=related"

2) then, you're going to do surgery to the url. first delete that part that says "watch?" and then replace the "=" with a "/"   so that you get... "http://www.youtube.com/v/XTD0tOnCn9g&feature=related"

3) then you highlite your new url, and you click the little button (above the smiley face) with the f in a red circle. (the flash media symbol).   this puts little square bracket "flash"  modifiers around it. after that, if you click "preview", you should be able to see it as a little embedded video.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/XTD0tOnCn9g&amp;feature=related" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/XTD0tOnCn9g&amp;feature=related</a>


4) change the numbers in the flash tag things to change the video size

If you look at enough of the 11-character youtube video ids, you will see that there are 64 possible first characters but only 16 possible last characters. Equivalently, there are 3 characters you can replace the last character with that will get you the same video.

w x y z

11 log2(64) = 2^6 + 2

That's pretty interesting, bobmath, did you discover that yourself?
