      Your first "click here" goes to an ELO video. Good though.

            Every time I try and follow theses procedures, a tab comes up and says: You are not allowed to post videos with MOV attached to them. What is MOV ? And is this because of the way it was done on a phone? Can anyone tell me how to move this video to another format that doesn't have MOV attached to it? Maybe MOV is movie ?

              MOV is an Apple movie file extension.

              The video you want to attach has to be on the internet...generally in a service like YouTube. If it is a movie you took and is just on your phone (or your computer) then no go. Load it to YouTube first then link to it there. I don't think this is a change from the old software. A forum really can't afford the bandwidth to host videos.

                Now I understand the problem. Yes, Dick is correct - you can only link to video hosted elsewhere on the Internet, such as YouTube or Vimeo; you cannot upload video files to the Forum’s servers. They are very large files and we do not have the storage space or the server bandwidth to host them here.

                    You'll have to sign up for a YouTube account, and then put the YouTube app on your Apple device. Once you've done this, you can upload to YouTube directly from your phone (I assume it's your phone ); once it's uploaded you can use the link to post it here!
