I thought I'd start a thread specifically for people who want to try out embedding video, posting pics and sound clips, links and what not to practice. So open a window to the forum how to and work out the bugs in your html.
Jaybird- There are kids on this site! And people who don't have easy access to eye-bleach. Maybe you could put a giant Lee Oskar mustache on the one cheek. And as Honkin pointed out, the harmonica is facing the wrong way.
"I think you misunderstand the gentleman's invitation"
Well, the caption says "a satisfied customer plays old man river", so I didn't think of it as an invitation as much as I did a demonstration. And, as wild as it would be to witness somebody blowing "old man river" through their ass......somebody blowing "old man river" ...through their ass....from the wrong side of the harmonica?
1. If you add target="_blank" to the html, it opens the link in its own window, so you don't leave the forum.
2. Its also a good practice to use the URL itself as the text between the tags. That means that people who print the page, or the visually impaired who use screen reader software have access to the URL itself.
OT means 'off topic' OP which is also somtimes used means 'original post' as in the post starting the thread. ---------- germanharpist on YT. =;-) - Resonance is KEY!

This video might deserve its own thread but its probably been posted before and I'll see if i remember how to embed (only tried once before). It starts with Amazing Grace but I'd recommend jumping to 7:30 to watch Whammer Jammer!
Could you remove it? It might be pretty confusing for people without those uber skillz... Plus, it covers the 'back' link. ---------- germanharpist on YT. =;-) - Resonance is KEY!

Yeah, no offense Nasty, but punctuation and pressing 'enter' to separate your thoughts would make them much easier to read. You have some pretty interesting and funny posts, and they would be much easier to interpret if you did this. :-) ---------- > Todd L Greene. V.P.
ozark.. best vid ever, i couldnt stop watching, it was like a train wreck...sounds like my dog grabbed my A harp and was playing keep away from me around the house with it...lol... ---------- Kyzer's Travels
html is very fussy and unforgiving. One minor mistake and at best it ignores you and at worst it completely screws the layout up. reading your post makes me wonder if you have the quotation marks in the exact correct places.
your code has to follow this format:
<a href="http://www.yourURL.com" target="_blank">your link text (will appear blue and underlined)</a>
Jaybird you can control the hight of the visualisation screen by changing the parameter in hight="xx". with a value of 19 it will only leave the 'player bar'. ---------- germanharpist on YT. =;-) - Resonance is KEY!

I'm confused. I was not invoking you, just trying to check link style for the 7-limit thread, and got that strange result here. What I did wrong was put the URL for the sanding wands with quotation marks around it; never put you in there. While you were replying, I just tried it on that thread sans quote marks and it's fine. So now I know how to put a text window within the text window, maybe. Perhaps if I did enough of those at once, it would send us into another cyber-dimension. Or maybe it's just a meta thang.
