How do you post a video to the Msg Boards instead of a Picture?

Has anyone been successful in posting a short video on the Message Boards? I've been trying it just like a picture and  it looks like it's working (taking it's own sweet time), but then it seems to just time-out and the video is not there.  Any suggestions?

Your media file does not have to be a photo it can be a video. You would upload it the same way. Also at the top of your post (when you're composing there is an "options" tab where you can attach files.

Hmmm, it didn't work for me...it seemed to time-out. And I did it exactly like a photo.   The video was 3.57MB...do you know if there is a size limit?

I'll have to check out the options tab for attaching files...

Thanks, Donna

Maybe it timed out because the site has been so funky lately.  Mine times out just trying to load the next page of a discussion thread.

Try uploading the video at a quiet time of day or night when the network might not be so busy.
