Video Question

Hey guys - a quick question for you fellow bloggers out there. I have a video (sent in by a reader) that I would like to upload here, but when I try it, Blogger AUTOMATICALLY turns it into a YouTube video!! And the video is certainly not appropriate for YouTube... Is there any way around this?

I think blogger just uses the youtube player for the video, but doesn't actually post the video to youtube.com - I've seen a few blogs post videos that way without issues.

could try loading it to xtube, but i would only do that if the sender were ok with having his video there.

i know you could do some privacy settings there, but have no idea how secure they would actually be.

blogger and yt belongs to google so functions are connected i think

Frankly, Koba, that's the first time I'm hearing this ... Never happened to me before ... I know that Google and YouTube are one, but that's it. YouTube recently SHUT DOWN my account because the video I had on there was 'inappropriate' ...

Ihave tried to upload vids as well, but really no luck. It seems to be taking way to long.

Thanks for your feedback guys! I've basically ended up like Ray with it taking too long to upload resulting in failure...
I'll keep working on it!

Like Ray and Koba I've had no luck posting videos on my blog either. Even some of the embeded ones don't seem to want to work sometimes. Very frustrating so I just stopped too.

The blogger Gods Among Men has video's all the time. They often are through xvideo. Maybe he can help you.
