Aug. 14, 2010------

First attempt to do videos on youtube. It is difficult to get them put directly on the blog, so perhaps this will work. It also allows for longer videos. Knowing that, we may get better at taking movies of our travels. Some of the quality of these leave a little to be desired. Click on each highlighted link one at a time to go directly to each one. After viewing a video, click your back arrow to return to the blog and select another video. Getting started with a variety of past movies. In the future the plan will be to have the link on the day of the activity. Take a look at these and feel free to comment.

The videos are nice.

It should be easy to post the videos directly on the blog. In Youtube there is a button below the description box for the video that says . Click on that and the embed code will appear. Double click on the code and copy it to the clipboard and then just paste it into blogger widow where you type the text and attach the photos. That's all. When you post, the video should be there just like on youtube.

By the way, I've noticed that your Internet access has improved. Are you using an AirCard or do you have Internet thru your satellite TV?

I see that part of instructions was deleted. The button you push on Youtube below the description box says "embed" and that is when you get the code.

You don't need to use upload video button on blogger that you use when you upload video directly to your blog.

All you do is paste the code into the blog box with any text you want and publish it.

I agree with Don. This is how I do it with my Web Page. It also frees up disk space on your blog since you are linking to youtube.
