How best to attach videos to the BEA
« on: January 24, 2018, 12:22:16 PM »
I went digging for the best method and approach to attach video links to the BEA.
Obviously, other video hosting sites change over time and wanted to move the "best practice" to the top here.

Sort of want to avoid what appeared on a recent Pink Lisa post.

What is the best way to link or reference video content?


Personally, I always link to embed a still image along with a link just for the record, even if the link dies.

"And for the season it was winter, and they that know the winters of that country know them to be sharp and violent, and subject to cruel and fierce storms . . . For summer being done, all things stand upon them with a weather-beaten face, and the whole country, full of woods and thickets, represented a wild and savage hue."

William Bradford, Plymouth Plantation, 1640
