As per title, how can we upload videos into our posts? Is it preferable just to link to the hosting site ie. Youtube, photobucket etc?

If you encode the video as a .mpg you can upload it, however there is a limit of about 2MB.

I think the best way is to upload to YouTube and embed it using the relevant forum tag.

The format is as follows

Code: [Select]
[youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=abcxyz[/youtube] with abcxyz being the individual video ID.

Hope that helps.
