Good videos again
« on: March 13, 2015, 12:20:39 PM »
Some while ago I asked for information on good videos on climate change. Thanks to those that replied. I've just found a new one and the blog softwar suggested a new topic. So her is

https_://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Jxs7lR8ZI

It's good and has a similar message but different style to

http_://lasthours.org

I think now's the time to look for others.

P.S. I've put the underscores in the URL's to stop them trying to play every time the page is loaded - Is this sensible?

Let me test that for you, Geoff.



Hmmm, YouTube vids don't show up at all. I keep forgetting how this works. Will have to ask the Dungeonmaster.

Edit: I think I've got it. Remove the s from the https in the YouTube link. If that's not enough, put the link between <url> brackets, using the button with the small globe in the comment editor, and repeat the link in the first bracket: <url=link>.

Does the video I inserted still play automatically for you, Geoff?

Thanks Neven

Good tip. The videos you inserted didn't start automatically but left about 20 lines of blank space.

I was hoping that they could be inserted to give the functionality of an ordinary html <a> link. Looking through the previous "good videos" thread is rather difficult (for me) because it gets too long.

While we are talking tech stuff, do search engines get through the https barrier on the forum?

That's how it shows up for me too now! But yesterday the YouTube window was there where you can just play the thing here without having to go to YouTube.

Strange. Maybe Dungeonmaster is fiddling behind the scenes.
