<span style="font-size: 10.5pt; color: #062971; font-family: 'Trebuchet MS'">I just hate the quality of YouTube videos. I think the best way to share videos here is to use the BallOfSpray gallery. You can upload videos just like you can upload pictures. Then you can link to them and everyone can see. Feel free to post what ever you want as long as it is skiing related. </span>

    I posted a video on Photobucket and was dis-satisfied with the quality too.

    On the elementary side, I looked on their forums and found they convert the video files to FLV (flash)...this is their way of ensuring everyone can view them.  The byproduct is that quality (especially with action videos) is diminished.
    </p>
    <p>
    As for YouTube...they have specific instructions on how to get the highest quality <a href="http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/answer.py?answer=55745&hl=en">Link</a>.  I haven't tried it yet, but based upon others experience it seems that there's still a quality issue.

    Seems like the YouTube function is a little fragle. When it fails just let me know and I will fix it. I think that it will do less goofy things if there is not any comments in the same post as the video. I am not 100% sure but that may be what went wrong with Chuck's kids videos this week.

    For those who have not tried it yet all you have to do is paste the url of the YouTube video in a post. if you follow this link
    </p>

    </p>
    <p>
      you will see that it is the same as the below video

    Beats me why this video works with all these comments but  . . .

    WMV files uploaded in the photo gallery at 320x240 and less then 2000kb in size work great. I think that some bigger files will also work but I am not sure were the limit is. this file is at that size and res <a href="http://ballofspray.com/coppermine/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pos=18#nav_pic">http://ballofspray.com/coppermine/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pos=18#nav_pic</a>
    </p>
    <p>
    WMV files will not imbed in the forum but they look so much better then Flash/YouTube files. If you have a bigger file and you really want to show it off you can FTP the file to me. Contact me for that . . .
