    I know I have posted aviation and non-avitaion videos in the normal forums, as have others. Is there a way to create albums specifically for videos? This way they could at least be in an easier to find location?

    Just a thought, my 2 pence worth.

    I should think there wouldnt be a problem to do so, but I'm not going to take the time to upload a big clip onto a thread, and then do it again for the library...

    It would be a good idea, but not many people would upload them once to their thread and then again to the album....

    Yes the new gallery has the ability to accept multimedia files(video, pdf, mp3, etc), and I am currently working on transferring the videos from the forum to the gallery(admins you should see a section at the bottom of the gallery for videos), I am still trying to work on creating a script to grab a few random frames from the video to provide a preview before a users comits to viewing or downloading. Will keep you guys updated on the progress

    Please test this section of the gallery for videos:
    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/album/showgallery.php?cat=610

    Let me know how the streaming is, and what you think of the thumbnail preview(still in the works).

    Uploading For Registered Users is not allowed(hope I set it right), because I have yet to integrate the thumbnail script into the photo album directly.
    Enjoy!

    Some don't show thumbnails, they just show a picture saying "This video could not be decoded" The ones that do show the thumbnails are good.

    Yes some codecs are not able to be decoded properly, but I am working on a fix to that.

    How's it going about the ability to upload videos in the posts, instead for the links?
    I can't remember how it was done earlier, how to write to get the video in the post...

    Right, ok, just found the 'Insert Video' button now, or yesterday. Question is now, why don't they show up in the posts, they're from YouTube?

    That's weird, there must be a video plugin that your browser is missing.
