On the Upload page is 'copy / transfer a video from YouTube' the same as embedding the video where the video is being played within Disclose TV but served from You tube or does that 'transfer' the video from YouTube to Disclose TV, so it will still play on Disclose TV,even if the video on YouTube is deleted?

Any help much appreciated :)

No. Embedding a video, such as in this forum or thread, simply streams the video from the host server (You-Tube).

When you transfer the video on the Upload page, you are actually having the video transfer over to the DTV servers. Which is good because some videos You-Tube decides to take down, so, if it has been moved to these servers utilizing that function, You-Tube can not touch them.

On the Upload page it doesn't look like there is an option to embed videos anyway...

i.e.
Option 1:Choose File
Option 2: 'copy / transfer a video from YouTube'

Unless I'm missing something?

any help appreciated... :)

OK, follow these instructions.

If you want to post a video from YouTube on a thread, go to the video page and you will see a URL
such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcnDDlTK8i8
I colorized what you want to copy and paste, everything to the right of the = symbol and before & if there is one.

Highlighting in this case QcnDDlTK8i8. Now look at the options...click youtube.
It will look almost like this...[youtube QcnDDlTK8i8 /youtube]
Hit submit at the bottom. By the way, welcome to DTV and this is that video...
