    New Feature:
    3reef members can now embed YouTube in posts! 8)

    If you have a reef-related video you would like to share, simply click the YouTube button found above the new post message box and add the video ID! (ex: Zi_v3GSHyTA) It's as simple as that!



    Check out this example:

    RULES FOR VIDEOS ON 3REEF:

    1) The usual, as with YouTube policies, no porn or you are banned.

    2) Please give full details on the video, if it is your aquarium, etc. As I did in the example thread above.

    3) Please post reef-related videos. If you want to share off-topic videos that are in good taste, you may do so in the Bucket (off-topic) forum.


    HOW TO UPLOAD VIDEOS:

    1) Create an account on YouTube.com. It's free.
    2) Look at their suggestions for video compression. They are helpful. Videos must be 100meg or less.
    3) I recommend virtualdub at virtualdub.org to compress videos. I compressed the video in this example from 379megs down to 44megs with little more than setting the video compression to mpeg4, lowering sound quality to 8bit mono and resizing it to 320x240. I think I should have done 340 I think as I don't think the ratio was quite right, but you get the idea.
    4) After uploading the video to youtube, grab the video ID to post here.


    ADD YOUR VIDEO TO THE GOOGLE 3REEF GROUP:

    I created a video group on google called 3reef. Please add your videos to that group. Here is the link to the group:
    3reef Group on Google

    All you have to do is click the 'Add to Groups' link found under your video player on the Google site. I think it would be really cool if we link all our videos to that group so we get a nice video library going. What'ya say?

    Alright another 3reef video! Nice one Otty! 8) :thumbs_up

    That Xenia dances like me. Really nice job with the rock layout. That tank looks a lot bigger than a 55 gallon. You did a good job there.




    This reminds me, I created a video group on google called 3reef. Please add your videos to that group. Here is the link to the group:
    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    All you have to do is click the 'Add to Groups' link found under your video player on the Google site. I think it would be really cool if we link all our videos to that group so we get a nice video library going. What'ya say?

    Nice sssnake! 8)

    I used to have those frilly mushrooms .. they are a trip. I think they call them elephant ears?
    And was that hawk fish?




    You guys should start a new thread with your videos so people can discuss them. Put video in the title. That should bring them in. ;)
