    Have converted it to “.avi” now, still no joy. It tells me that the upload is completed but the vid doesn’t show.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanx

    hi Rudi, I really have no idea. We’ll have to wait until Dunc spots this I’m afraid.

    Can you try again now Rudi? Latest Simple Press promises to fix the problem but I don’t have any .avi files available from work.

    Hi Duncan,

    now I get a “file size error”. That seems odd since it is stated that ‘media upload file size’ is unlimited. 

    Maybe you could just explain to an old fogey like me how I can get a video, which I have uploaded to a host like youtube or vimeo, to show in the post. Like BigTom did recently in “Tom’s Bucket O’ Mud”. That’ll help already.

    Regards

    R.

    1. On your YouTube video, go to “Share” then “Embed”
    2. Copy the code
    3. On the forums, write a new post/reply, then hit the “HTML” button
    4. Paste the code in there, hit “OK”
    5. Job should be a good’un!

    I’ve also tried changing a few settings regarding the file size, so if you do get a spare 5 minutes, please give “the SF way” another go for me.

    Still no joy Duncan, but the max. file size in the error message is exactly the same as before:

    max file size: 8388608

    so whatever changes you made, the system doesn’t seem to understand you. :-)

    The other “trick” I shall try with the next video I might want to post.

    Thanx

    B.t.w. the embedding number doesn’t work either. After pasting the code and hitting update, I can see the vid in the editing window but when I hit “submit” it doesn’t show in the post. That’s with Chrome. I’ll try IE later.

    Regards

    R.

    Nope, in IE9 I get to the point where I can see the vid in the editing window but then I can neither save it to the forum nor cancel the editing. Just doesn’t do anything.

    And I just noticed, emoticons (smileys) don’t work either. Not that that was of any importance, just mentioning.

    Strange.

    Looking at the way Tom has done it, he simply pasted the Vimeo link in to his post and the forum software appeared to automatically process it!

    Maybe give that a go with your YouTube video? If not, you may have to upload to Vimeo.

    Dunc, are the settings you’ve changed the reason I now have a new box at the top of the forum with recently-updated threads in? It won’t go away unless I manually delete each update.

    You need only the youtube link e.g.

    http:/ /www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4zuDzFeEiU

    Rüdiger, it may be that you have copied from Youtube the wrong link. Recently they left, if you have logged in, on httpS, instead of http. But you can not reflect this in a forum. Change the copied link simply to http, then it works.

    And in the html view you have to set the link between

    and

    Thanx a lot Jutta and Thomas. I shall try that AGAIN later this afternoon when I get to my laptop again.

    @ Thomas: Absolutely stunning animals you’re showing in that video (I assume they are yours)

    @ Jutta: Splendid tank as always. Good to see that I’m not the only one batteling with the “ugly green stuff”. ;-)

    Are those B. doriae? I noticed a few specimens with greatly reduced black pigmentation. Is that due to age or breeding?

    I have, fairly recently, intrduced 4 specimens of B. doriae to a 54 l tank, first time I am keeping them. They don’t behave as I would have expected from gobies at all. They are very actively making use of the entire water column i.e. swimming in the open water a lot. Even some of their “resting spots” are high up on broad leaved plants. Do you have similar experiences?

    Regards

    R.

    Hi Rüdiger,
    Yes, this are B. doriae. In the video you can see males during courtship. They completely lose their black stripes and are quite golden, whilst pursuing the females :-) Looks funny, huh?

    Mine are after a water change always very active. They also move very much, but after the water change, it is always very hard. But I know now that this is very dependent on water quality. Currently I have been very slightly salted, 2 grams per liter. Since they are very very fidgety. In our very soft tap water, they feel quite comfortable even over long distances. If this is not so, they suddenly sit around relatively motionless. This is always a warning sign.
