Question Non YouTube video?

Is there any way to include a very short (~ <10 seconds) video/movie clip with a post similar to a still-image attachment?

That is, without it being 'hosted' on another site like YouTube, FB, etc?

Maybe something like an animated gif loaded from my hard drive as an attachment?

I'm not tech-savvy about movie clips on the interweb, may not be using correct terms, hope you catch what I'm asking.

Thanks!

You should be able to utilize the drag and drop feature, located at the bottom of the reply post box.
I know you can drag and drop .gifs, and it will pop into the forum.

I'm not too certain on the video files, can you give this a shot and see if it works?

OK, attached using the drag-and-drop is a very simple animated gif I had handy (my work product, no copyright issues ;-).

IF the animation is supported we should see the CMRA logo change to two other race event info images every few seconds in a repeating cycle.

Son of a gun - when I click on the attachment to view the larger image the animation works !!!!

Thanks, @Administrator Richard!

Please let me know by reply when you've seen this and I'll remove that attachment from my site-storage to free-up some space.

Ozekuga - did the gifs animate in reverse order in the Southern Hemisphere?

test 2 - embedded as image by linking to this site attachment URL



EDIT - well lookee there - it's animated in the embedded image !



EDIT 2 - gee, that's almost as irritating as a popup advertisement



EDIT 3 - no, that IS as irritating as a popup ad



Oh well, interesting to learn ..... both the "attachment" and the "imbedded image" tools on the forum support animated gif.
