    I am having trouble trying to post a video.

    I tried posting it as an attachment but it freezes.

    Is there a new way to post a video?

    Never had this problem before.

    What freezes - the attachment upload? The viewing of the video when you try and view it?

    What size is the attachment?

    Have you checked the posting Help? - see the icon top right of the text entry field. This shows - under 'Media' - how to create a link to (e.g.) a YouTube video.

    Its a Windows Media Audio/Video file that I have in a folder.

    Its size is 53k.

    What freezes is the uploading of the video.

    I will try to upload it again and check the posting help.

    Will try to show a screen shot of what happens if it happens again.

    The attachment is a snap shot of my PC screen when I try to upload the video.

    Had no trouble with this attachment.

    It was a still photo.

    Is there something elese that must be done to post a video that is in a folder?

    I looked at the "help with attaching files" and did not see anything there that migfht help me.

    Sheer speculation on my part, but I wonder if The Lounge software (uploading) is having trouble with the spaces in the link? Why not try copying the file to a base folder somewhere - with no spaces in the link and try again.

    Are you sure that the size is 53 KB? That would be extremely small for a video file.

    This is what I got the second time I tried to upload the video.

    "Error No file was selected for upload"

    I selected the video from a folder using "Browse" and when it appears in the box next to browse I hit "Upload File" and it seem to be uploading the video,.

    Also this is the way the video is in its folder:

    Ninja Cat Returns.wmv 53,264KB Windows Media Audio/Video File

    Its Duration is 1.30 Min. and its Dimension is 608x352

    That looks like MEG rather than K bytes.

    Ah - the file size is 53,264 KB, that is a whopping 53 MB!
    The maximum size for an attachment is 2 MB, so there's no way you're going to be able to attach this file.
    I presume you got it from the Internet - if so, you post a link to the website, provided it's "family friendly".

    File sizes are in bytes.
    1,024 bytes = 1 kilobyte (KB)
    1,024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte (MB)
    1,024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte (GB)

    The file size of your video file is 53,264 KB. That is NOT the same as 53 KB but over 53000 KB, which corresponds to roughly 53 MB (actually 52 MB)

    Learned, copied to fix-it folder and never forgotten!

    Just posted the video using the URL from You Tube and it worked.

    Well, as I think you know, not all comments on YouTube are family friendly; if they were, then I could post a lot from there if I wished, but I refrain from doing that many times (because of the comments).

    And as noted, there's a huge difference between 53 KB and 53 MB.

    Oh dear - I must refer everyone to the Wikipedia article on the Kibibyte and the following chart:

    [attachment=86630refixes.GIF]

    Unfortunately the IEC binary prefixes have not been widely adopted, and thus the confusion between 1024 and 1000 remains...
    And note the anomaly where the kB (kilobyte) is the only one with a lower-case prefix ('k') - officially. Mostly this is ignored, for consistency!

    You don't have to!

    Anyway, what's the abbreviation for Kittybyte, which is probably more applicable in this thread?
